Babies Rarely Chapter?
Hello. My 3-month-old child has a lot of gas and stinks, and the chapters are once 3 days. Does my child have indigestion?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. The frequency of bowel movements in infants is indeed not to be confused with children or adults. The frequency can be more frequent or less frequent without it being a sign of an abnormality.
In the case of your child, every 3 days defecation is still in the normal category. Even every 7-10 days is still normal, as long as there are no signs of abnormality. Signs of abnormality are the child's weight does not increase, the baby's abdomen enlarges and is hard, the baby's stool mixed with blood, the baby seems to push when defecating, has a fever, becomes inactive, and such. This also applies when the stool becomes frequent or the consistency of the stool becomes runny. As long as your baby is still active, his weight is still increasing and is on the normal curve, and there are no signs of gravity, so it doesn't matter.
So you have nothing to worry about, especially if your child consumes breast milk. High absorption of breast milk makes the stool a little, so it is natural that the frequency of bowel movements is rare. Meanwhile, to help your baby defecate more frequently, you can try gently massaging his stomach, moving his legs with a pedaling motion while he sleeps on his back, and bathing him warm water. Don't forget to routinely control the growth and development at the posyandu. So, hopefully answering your question.
