Babies 7 Months Of Age Are Slimy During Colds?
Good night, I want to ask, my son just happened to be in 7 months, the last 5 days, why is the defecation 6-8 times a day? Is this normal? The bowel is sometimes dense, sometimes runny, there is mucus, 5 days of mucus due to runny nose, is the mucus caused by colds in children? I have brought it to the midwife, said that it’s okay as long as the bowel isn’t brown, there’s no water, the mucus isn’t bleeding
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously you should also explain, does your child experience other symptoms such as vomiting, fever, decreased appetite, is the consistency of the stool very thin, or is there blood in the stool? Has the baby recently changed his diet or have you just changed his milk (for example, just given formula milk)?
If there are no symptoms as mentioned above, the possibility of changing the frequency of your baby's BAB is not caused by infection in the baby's digestive tract. Changes in the frequency of bowel movements can indeed be caused by other illnesses that are being suffered by babies (for example babies having a cold cough). Other causes include infants experiencing teething, new babies being immunized, can also be caused by other things such as allergies to food or formula milk, etc. As long as the baby does not show other disturbing symptoms, you do not need to worry too much, keep feeding as usual, give it a drink as usual, and pay attention again after the baby recovers from a cold whether the frequency of bowel movements returns to normal as usual or not.
If your baby experiences other symptoms such as those mentioned above, the stool looks very runny and the amount is large, you see the stools are very runny and the amount is too many every time the stool, or you see there is blood in the stool, then you can bring your child to pediatrician for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
