Babies Aged 20 Months Defecate After Drinking Formula Milk?
Morning, my child is 20 months old, exclusive breastfeeding is still running, but now I am trying to take extra milk as a supplement, and it turns out that after a few minutes of drinking fluids, I have direct defecation, not runny, not solid, is that normal? Is the sufor suitable. Drink 2-3x sufor a day, the defecation can be up to 4-5x a day and a little .. Thank you
Was the frequency of defecation like that before? Are there other complaints such as the child being sick, fussy, flatulence, vomiting, liquid stool, mucus, bleeding, weakness? If there is an increase in the frequency of defecating with more liquid stools, it is a condition of diarrhea.
Diarrhea in children can be affected by consuming too much fruit juice, food allergies, milk allergy, lactose intolerance, food poisoning, gastrointestinal infections, and certain drug allergies.
For the time being, you can try replacing formula milk with a different brand first. If the condition is still the same, each child has frequent bowel movements, you should check your child with a pediatrician so that your child can be further examined to confirm the cause if necessary with a stool test and blood test. Then your child will be given proper treatment.
As long as the child experiences an increase in the frequency of bowel movements, the child should also pay attention to the possibility of other food allergies, meet the child's daily fluid needs, try to see whether if formula milk is stopped, bowel complaints will improve or not, and watch for signs of dehydration. If there is dehisration, immediately take it to the nearest emergency room.
Hope this helps,
