Baby Having Difficulty BAB?
I want to ask, my child has not had a chapter for two days even though my child only consumes breast milk. Even though the frequency of the previous chapter was smooth, it could be 3-4 times a day. What is danger? Because my son is 7 months premature, but it’s been a month and two months since he was born
