Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
If your baby is still exclusively breastfed, often the CHAPTER he is experiencing is often still physiological (normal, does not require special treatment) due to the influence of the type of food and drinks you consume, which also indirectly affects the composition of the milk your baby consumes . Physiological conditions are usually characterized by:
Diarrhea does not occur more than 3 days, and no more than 10 times a day
Stool is still taking away
Stool does not contain blood, mucus
Babies do not experience fever, colic, vomiting, lazy feeding, and so on
You can do the following steps first so that your baby's condition improves:
Continue exclusive breastfeeding, do not carelessly add other foods or drinks (including formula milk) without direct advice from a doctor
When breastfeeding, make sure you only consume foods and drinks that are healthy, processed with clean and cooked, not too spicy, and do not make you allergic
Do not just give medication to babies without a doctor's prescription
Make sure the environment around the baby is kept clean, diligently also wash hands and shorten the baby's nails
However, if your baby's bowel movements occur more than 10 times a day, prolonged for more than 3 days, or appear feverish, colic, vomiting, lazy breastfeeding, and symptoms of dehydration, it is better to check it directly to the doctor or a specialist. children yes ... A thorough physical examination is also supporting tests, such as blood tests, stool tests, or ultrasound can be done by doctors to detect the possibility of underlying diseases, such as intestinal inflammation, digestive infections, food allergies, intolerance or malabsorption, metabolic disorders, and so on .
Hope this helps ...
