BAB 6 Months Old Baby 9 Times A Day?
Good night, r nMy child is 6 months less than 7 days, in chapter 9 times a day, but the color of the regular yellow is a bit runny, sometimes overflowing with phlegm so, I’ve tried asking the midwife. He said it’s okay as long as the dedek isn’t hot and not fussy. That’s how it is.
The baby chapter can be a signal / sign to tell parents that the baby is in a healthy or sick condition. Care should be taken if the shape and texture of the baby chapter is not as usual, for example slimy. If the baby is slimy, there are several causes of the condition, one of which is dysentery.
Although slimy chapters are one of the symptoms of dysentery, but you need to make sure in advance by looking at other symptoms that accompany it. The symptoms of dysentery in addition to slimy chapters are babies experiencing diarrhea accompanied by blood and pain during the chapter.
If only the slimy chapter is not accompanied by blood, it is likely the result of interference with the enzyme or liquid released by the body to soften the stool so it is not hard, so that it injures the walls of the digestive tract.
Therefore it is advisable to do a direct medical evaluation by a pediatrician so that the exact cause can be identified, so that further management can be done appropriately.
In addition, always maintain the cleanliness of children and the environment, before handling the child it is better to wash your hands first, avoiding children consuming food / drinks that are not hygienic.
Next, I attach an article about dysentery to add information.
