Baby BAB 4 Times A Day After Giving Mashed Pears?
Good night. My son just mpasi yesterday it was very difficult to push until he was crying because it was difficult. Then I give you 2 pears. By making juice and puree pears. But instead a day can be 4x and the chapters are like chili seeds … Normally?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. There are indeed many challenges that might be faced when starting MPASI. It can be in the form of a child who is lazy to eat, takes food out of his mouth, fuss and feces that come out improperly, either too rarely or too often, too hard or too runny. This is quite complicated because each child responds to the initial phase of MPASI differently.
Therefore in addressing this matter, first, we must know the order of giving MPASI. Start by giving him soft foods such as rice porridge or baby cereal that has been very smooth, and occasionally may be given fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples and pears that have also been softened. Softening these foods is very important, because coarse food is not only difficult for him to digest, it can also make the stool hard and make it difficult to defecate until it has to push. Maybe the lack of softness of food is what makes your child experience constipation.
In addition, if you want to give juice, give juice that is made at home, because the juice sold anywhere must have been mixed with various ingredients that cannot be properly digested by the baby. Even added sugar and honey should not be given to children under the age of 1 year, and therefore the safest way to give juice is a self-made juice. However, juice can be too smooth for the digestion of children. As you might have often heard, even for adults if you have difficulty defecating or constipation, the recommendation is to consume more vegetables and fruit. Then you can imagine what happens if the baby only consumes fruit throughout the day. That is why, before we said the fruit should only be given occasionally.
So once again for giving MPASI, food that can be given to your child is quite limited, namely baby porridge, baby cereals, and fruits or vegetables whose frequency is only occasionally. Then if your child does not want to, do not force it, because this semi-solid food functions only as a companion, and the main may still be breast milk. It doesn't have to be when your child is 6 months old, he is completely separated from breast milk.
After your child wants to eat, stick to one type of food for 3-5 days before changing to another type of food. This is to give time to digestion to adapt. After that, if you want to replace it with other food, please replace it and wait a few more days. If symptoms appear, stop giving food because he may be allergic to food.
If after all this, your child's stools still look abnormal, check with your pediatrician for further examination and treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
