Babies Often Defecate After Consumption Of Dragon Fruit?
Hello. I want to ask my child over 6 months and I pay attention if I eat the dragon fruit, so the chapter becomes more frequent? Is my child having diarrhea or normal. Thank you …
ASI MP can start given after 6 months of age children gradually. Dragon fruit is one of the fruits that can be given as MP ASI. But if you just start MP ASI, dragon fruit should be mashed yes. In addition, for the baby to be nutritious, it is strongly recommended to provide MP ASI with a varied menu every day.
Dragon fruit contains water, protein, carbohydrates, various vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants that are good for the body. Dragon fruit can also facilitate digestion. Therefore, sometimes people who consume dragon fruit have more bowel movements and sometimes the color of their feces is reddish. Stool color will return to normal after not consuming dragon fruit anymore.
Regarding bowel movements in your child, are there other complaints such as slimy stools, bleeding, watery consistency, nausea, vomiting, or the child looks in pain? If there are no other complaints, the possibility of defecation is still within normal limits. Normal defecation in children who have received MP ASI is around 1-3x / day to 1-3x / week. You don't need to worry about this. If you feel worried, try to limit the consumption of dragon fruit to a few days, not necessary every day. Also try to always vary the baby's MP MP menu.
However, if there is a change to bowel movements more than 3 times a day with a more runny stool consistency or other complaints as above, consideration should be given to diarrhea. If there is diarrhea with the above symptoms, you should consult your child directly to the doctor so that further treatment can be given.
Hope it helps you,
