3-week-old Babies Always Push Until Their Faces Are Red?
, my child is now 3 weeks old. When he was 2 weeks old, he often hijacked his face until he turned red, his stool was greenish yellow. Then at that time he vomited and then immediately I brought it to the doctor, apparently I was wrong in my diet, because the day before I was consuming coconut milk. After being given medicine from my pediatrician I began to improve, and the stools were already bright yellow and striving. But sometimes my child is still mengeden until his face turned red, is that fair? The bowel pattern is reduced to once a day but once the bowel movement, a lot of it comes out.
Hello Ayuk, thank you for asking.
From the stool consistency described, it looks like the stool of a mother's baby is normal, meaning that it is not hard, not accompanied by bleeding in the anus due to the baby pushing too hard. The frequency of bowel movements for each baby is different. As long as the baby is still defecating regularly every day there should be no problem. Babies who drink exclusive breastfeeding are generally less feces because breast milk is more easily absorbed when compared with milk powder. Babies are like adults, when they want to defecate usually accompanied by straining.
As long as the baby does not experience constipation (difficult bowel movements or hard bowel movements) and there is no rectal bleeding, chances are the baby is in the normal process of straining. But if one day it is seen that the stools become hard, the stools are hard to get out, the anus bleeds, the baby becomes fussy and often cries, bowel movements are not routine every day, then it is better for the baby to take it for consultation with the doctor.
At this time to prevent constipation try to baby regularly drink milk, the mother is not in a state of dehydration so that the amount of breast milk remains large, and make sure the child is actively moving.
We wish you a healthy baby always. Regards.
