Good morning, want to ask? Is it normal for a 3 week old baby to not have a chapter, and for 3 weeks also does not have a chapter, the first chapter is 2 days after birth …….

1 Answer:

Hello Wahab,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Constipation (difficult bowel movements) in infants can be considered normal if it occurs less than once a week. If it is true that your baby did not defecate until nearly 3 weeks as you mentioned, of course this condition can not be considered reasonable. You need to check your baby IMMEDIATELY to the doctor or pediatrician. This check should not be postponed, especially if your baby has the following danger signs:

Does not vent at all in more than 24 hours
BAB baby is small, hard, or contains blood
Babies do not defecate at all for more than 1 week
Vomiting a lot
Stomach hard and bulging
Lazy suckling
Looks weak, less active
Fussy, often crying, often stretched and raised his legs
Very mass in the abdominal cavity
Disturbed growth and development

Although rare, prolonged constipation in infants can also indicate a serious medical disorder, for example Hirschsprung's disease, hypothyroidism, or cystic fibrosis. It could also, the baby is experiencing constipation due to intolerance, malabsorption, or food poisoning, intestinal inflammation, gastrointestinal infections, obstructive ileus, dehydration, and many other possible causes. These conditions can be further evaluated by a doctor, not only through interviews and physical examinations, but also by involving several investigations, for example X-rays, ultrasound, laboratories, and other supporting tests.


In the meantime, so that your baby has a better bowel movement, do the following tips:

Feed your baby breast milk, do not give milk, food or other drinks
Perform gentle massage on the baby's stomach, like forming a picture of the heart (massage I love you), while moving his legs like pedaling a bicycle
Don't worry or worry too much
Do not carelessly give medicines to babies, including laxatives, without a prescription from a doctor

Hope this helps ...
