Bowel Problems In Children Aged 1 Year?
, this afternoon when my child was pooping, at the end something dark brown appeared about the size of the middle finger / index finger of an adult … but the other po * p had the same color and texture. Why is that? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The existence of feces that have different shapes as you describe can be caused by 2 possibilities:
first, your child has previous constipation and the first stool comes out is the stool that has hardened in the intestine second, your child swallows an object that can not be digested and finally removed from the stool If your child does not look difficult when defecating, your child looks just calm down and play active as usual, your child will not be more fussy, have a fever, or appear to have stomach pain, so you don't need to worry too much. If you notice certain symptoms that are bothering the child, you can take the child to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
