15-month-old Child CHAPTER More Than 5x Normal?
Hello wr wb
Walaikumsalam wr wb
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
There is no specific benchmark in infants related to the frequency of bowel movements every day. These habits vary from child to child. There are once a day, twice or more, and some even have a bowel cycle every 2 days or 3 days.
If your child has a bowel movement but no change in stool consistency is found and no other symptoms are present then you don't need to worry. The pattern of bowel movements in infants is influenced by the food he consumes, the portion of food, and the physical activity he does. Consumption of foods high in fiber and many liquids that can help facilitate bowel movements and increase its frequency.
The thing to worry about is when there is a change in the consistency of feces into a liquid, and its frequency is more than 3 times within 24 hours. This is called acute diarrhea which can be accompanied by other symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, no appetite, etc. Beware of signs of dehydration that are easily recognized from eyes that appear sunken, child thirst, weakness, and decreased skin elasticity.
To prevent the danger of diarrhea, several things you can do include:
Washing hands before and after eating
Cook food until cooked
Wash food before cooking
Do not consume food that is sold freely alongside the road
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Inadequate water needs
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
