Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In infants who are still exclusively breastfed (without any additional food and drink), bowel disturbances in general are not a dangerous thing. This condition usually occurs due to changes in the composition of breast milk related to food and drinks that mothers consume. As long as your baby is still defecating with frequency (no more than 3 times a day and no less than 2 times a week) and reasonable consistency (solid to soft), this condition often does not need special treatment.
Your baby who looks difficult during bowel movements can occur if the milk he consumes is very thick. This thick milk is actually good for supporting its growth, but often also has an effect on bowel movements. It can also be difficult for your baby to experience CHAPTER due to too much gas entering the digestive tract (for example due to frequent suckling using a pacifier, suckling while crying sobbing, or not being buried after breastfeeding). Or, difficult bowel movements can also occur due to an illness, such as gastroenteritis (digestive infection), inflammation of the intestine, poisoning, and so on.
Although most are not dangerous, but given the complaint has lasted 1 week, it would not hurt you to check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it can be evaluated more deeply the possible conditions that underlie the complaint.
In the meantime, you should not panic first, especially giving your baby indiscriminate medication without a doctor's prescription. Do the following steps first:
Feed your baby ONLY ASI
Try to feed the baby directly from the breast
If unable to breastfeed directly, milk your milk and do not give it to the baby using a pacifier, but give it with a feeder cup, spoon, or pipette
After feeding, burp your baby
Encourage your baby to move and play actively
Do not allow dangerous objects to be swallowed to be in the reach of babies
Diligent washing baby's hands to be clean
Hope this helps ...
