7 Month Old Baby Stool Like Dregs?
Afternoon, want to ask.
Hi Dara. Due to their inability to communicate like adults, in caring for babies, sometimes you have to pay close attention to the signs around them, including their stools. Changes in diet, as well as the addition of new types of food and so on can indeed affect the baby's stool. So, it is true that babies who consume formula milk will have a stool appearance that is different from babies who consume breast milk, both from the smell, texture, amount, color, and level of frequency. This is due to the different components, as well as the transition period that the baby's digestion is going through.
One of the things you need to remember, some formula milk may cause allergic reactions for certain babies. So be careful when giving formula milk. Get your baby checked immediately if you find any of the following:
Liquid and very frequent stools. Watch out for dehydration in babies passing too liquid and frequent stools. Hard stools like beads or goat manure. Stool like this is a sign of constipation. Constipation often occurs the first time a baby is given solid foods. Blood-red stools. Besides consuming tomatoes, dragon fruit, or other fruits that can give a red color to the stool, the red color of the stool can also be a sign that there is blood in the stool.
