1 Year Old Child Poops In A Liquid Consistency?
my child is 13 months old, has not been congested for a week, sometimes 1-2x in a day is not frequent. but the child isn’t fussy because of a stomachache.
Hello Paulina, Thank you for the question.
The frequency of bowel movements can vary from child to child, some can bowel movements once every day, several times a day, or once a few days but in large amounts. The frequency of bowel movements between one child and another cannot be equated. The frequency and consistency of stool can become more fluid depending on the intake of food and drink consumption of children and physical activity of children. The frequency of bowel movements one to two times a day is still relatively normal. You need to know also that there is consistency of stool that is classified as normal, not always in the solid form; normal stool consistency ranges from soft to solid.
In addition to paying attention to the frequency of bowel movements and stool consistency, another thing you need to pay attention to is the color of stool and other features of stool and other accompanying symptoms. If the stool is normally brownish yellow in color, does not contain mucus or blood, and does not smell bad, then this condition is still classified as normal; especially if this condition is not accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, flatulence, vomiting, fussiness, weakness, refusing to eat or drink, or reduced urine. However, if this condition is accompanied by abnormalities in the stool and other symptoms mentioned above, then you should immediately consult your child to the doctor to find out the cause. Further treatment will be given by the doctor after an examination of your child.
For now, please keep your food and drink intake for your child. It is also recommended that you monitor your child's symptoms. Note whether changes in stool consistency are related to certain foods or drinks. If there is worsening of symptoms, don't hesitate to discuss your child's condition, yes.
I hope this helps.
