BAK Is A Deep Color And Only Slightly In Infants 7 Months?
hello, my child is 7 months old, he pees a little bit, if I use diapers only the front is full, lately I have seen the diapers like they have a slightly orange color, why is that ??
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Low urination (BAK) or oliguria (in medical language), namely BAK with a total of less than 05cc / kgBB / hour, by monitoring the amount of BAK in 24 hours or 1 day. Apart from the amount of urine in 24 hours, a little BAK is also marked by a thick urine color. The causes of this low BAK are:
1. Dehydration, can be due to lack of fluid intake (not drinking enough or not breastfeeding the baby), the leakage of fluid between the tissues (such as edema in liver disease) and the result of a lot of fluid loss (for example in the case of diarrhea, vomiting or excessive sweating).
2. Urolithiasis or the presence of stones in the urinary tract which results in obstruction of the flow of urine, so that urine comes out a little from its normal.
I advise you to:
1. Pay attention to the signs of lack of fluids in the mother's child, namely a little BAK, sunken crown, sunken eyes, dry lips, the child looks thirsty, the child is fussy or the child looks weak. If there are any of these signs, seek medical help immediately.
2. Breastfeed as often as possible. In this regard, of course, mother's milk must be a lot too. the way to get a lot of mother's milk is to drink lots of water, consume vegetables and fruits. As well as meeting other nutritional needs of mothers, including carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Mother also don't stress, so that the amount of breast milk is maintained.
So, hopefully it's useful.
