14-month-old Child CHAPTER Runny After Drinking ASI?
Look, I’m now pregnant with my second child. While my first child is still nursing. My first child is 14 months old. Every time my first child finished breastfeeding was always defecating and the form was runny like diarrhea. The color also changes, sometimes bright yellow. Sometimes a little green, sometimes also pale yellow. Is it normal like that? Or because my milk is not good for my child because I am pregnant? Whereas my child does not want to not drink breast milk. Then the solution is for my child not to want to drink Asi again. Because I’m used to sleeping with dysonin.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically breast milk will not be "stale" or "bad" or "decreased quality" when you are pregnant. Breast milk is still a good source of nutrition for children, even if you have given birth to your second child and decided to breastfeed in tandem (breastfeeding both children together). Therefore, you do not need to stop breastfeeding a child just because you are pregnant, unless you are recommended to stop breastfeeding by your obstetrician (for example because you have a high risk of miscarriage, risk of preterm labor, etc.).
Regarding the stools of a runny child, you also don't need to worry too much. CHAPTER 14-month-old child can indeed still look runny like a child under 1 year. The color of bowel movements is also normally normal (depending on the food eaten by the child, and also the food that the mother eats because the child is still breastfed). If your child's stools look runny and the amount rises above normal (meaning your child has diarrhea), this may also not be caused by your milk, but is more likely to be caused by a gastrointestinal infection (due to foods that eat less clean, for example). If your child experiences this, you should consult your pediatrician for further therapy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
