Blackish Green Faeces In 4-week Babies?
Hello, I want to ask my child is a 4-week-old baby, is it dangerous to stool, black and green liquid?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Blackish and liquid stools in babies can mean many things, it can be the result of digestion of breast milk, it could be because there is blood coming from cracks in the nipple, or it could be due to certain digestive tract disorders.
If your child does not cause certain symptoms such as fuss all the time, look weak, lazy to drink, his breathing is very fast, or any symptoms that seem worrisome, actually this is not a problem and does not need special handling. But considering the age of your baby who is still very early, we think it would be better if you still consult a pediatrician, just in case if there are symptoms that escape your supervision. The treatment your pediatrician will give later depends on the results of the examination.
In the meantime do not need to worry too much, still breastfeed your child as usual, keep it clean and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
