Babies Aged 2 Months Have Not Chapped A Week?
I have a 2 month old baby, he hasn’t chapped a week yet even though I only gave him exclusive breastfeeding, how do I do it so that he can chapter again, thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Babies who have just received exclusive breastfeeding are generally less likely to have fewer bowel movements than babies who consume formula milk. This condition is nothing to worry about, especially if it occurs for less than 2 weeks and is not accompanied by dangerous symptoms, such as:
The baby does not pass the same wind in 2 times 24 hours The baby does not want to breastfeed at all The baby is vomiting The baby has abdominal pain, characterized by a fussy baby, often grimaces in pain, stretches his body, and looks to be straining continuously. The baby's stomach feels hard, tight, and pain when pressed If this condition does not occur in your baby, it is likely that the condition is still normal, indicating the components of breast milk are very well digested and absorbed by the digestive system, so that very little residue can be excreted through the feces.
What you should do is:
Continue to provide exclusive breastfeeding until the baby is 6 months old. Massage your baby's stomach regularly, namely in a clockwise direction, while moving the baby's feet like pedaling a bicycle. This is believed to help launch a baby's bowel movements. Encourage the baby to be active and active. There is no need to give any medicine to the baby either by mouth or anus, unless it is prescribed directly by the doctor. Consistently doing the steps above, constipation in babies can generally be resolved so that it does not drag on. However, if the complaint does not improve, or there are danger signs as described above, do not hesitate to check your baby directly to the doctor so that further treatment is given.
I hope this helps.
