BAB Accompanied By Blood Mucus And Foaming In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Hello good morning, my child is 5 months old, and it’s been 3 days for each of my children to defecate there is a little blood in their stools, and usually my child routinely defecates only once a day, but these 3 days become 2 or 3 times a day, then the texture of the stool is somewhat a little mucous and foamy, that’s why yes, and how to treat it, thank you …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
A foaming baby's feces can occur when the baby has a lot of teething due to teething, and often swallows saliva during the teething process. If you see a slimy or foamy texture, while the baby is not teething, the cause could be an infection and blood in the baby's feces can occur due to abrasions due to constipation or other signs of infection that also require a doctor's care.
if this lasts more than 3 and is accompanied by other complaints such as fever and more blood and smells fishy and accompanied by diarrhea, abdominal pain you should immediately consult a pediatrician to overcome this so that the doctor can do a direct examination and if necessary the doctor will do an examination feces and provide proper handling according to the cause.
There are several things you can do
To prevent the fecal texture of baby's foaming, the solution is to let the baby suckle on one breast at least 5-10 minutes before switching to another breast. To deal with foaming in infants who are fed formula milk, replace the milk with formula milk that reads hypoallergenic. Do not give medicine without doctor's advice so I can give information
hopefully can help
get well soon for your child
