Health Tip: Pyloric Stenosis — A Digestive Problem for Newborns

(HealthDay News) — Although most babies spit up, forceful vomiting isn’t normal and could be a sign of a digestive problem called pyloric stenosis.

The Nemours Foundation says warning signs of pyloric stenosis include:

  • Projectile vomiting after a feeding, then wanting to eat again shortly afterward.
  • Constipation, or stools that contain mucus.
  • Not gaining weight.
  • Being less active than a typical newborn.
  • A ripple action that’s visible on baby’s tummy after baby eats.
