Is the vomit of a new-born baby impure? 

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Does the vomit of an exclusively breast fed baby make the clothing soiled and does it have to be washed before salaah?

A. In the case of a breastfeeding child’s vomit, if the child has vomited less than a mouthful, the vomit will be pure and it will not be necessary to wash it before performing Salaah. However, if the child has vomited a mouthful or more, the vomit will be impure and it will be necessary to wash the soiled area of the clothing before performing Salaah. (Maraaqil Falaah 1/155)

Note: In this case, it is not necessary to wash and clean the entire clothing. This should be done before performing Salaah.
