Cause BAB Baby 3 Months Old Is Rather Green And Slimy?
Afternoons .. my name is laura. It’s normal if the baby is 3 months old CHAPTER 2 times a day. But the color is yellowish green mixed with mucus. Thank you for the answer
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
A 3-month-old baby is very normal if still defecating twice a day. At this age, there are babies who can still defecate 4-5 times a day and some are not defecated several days to 1 week. As long as the baby does not look sick, weak, fussy when they want to defecate, there is nothing to worry about. The slimy green chapter in infants can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Babies get certain supplements (such as iron supplements)
The effect of the food the mother eats when the baby is breastfed
The mother has hyperlactation (excessive milk production), so the baby gets more foremilk (breast milk that is released at the beginning of breastfeeding) than hindmilk (breast milk that is released at the end of breastfeeding)
The baby is teething
Babies have gastrointestinal infections
Infants are allergic to milk (in babies given formula milk)
Post certain vaccinations also sometimes the color of the bowel may change for a while
If your baby has no symptoms other than his green and slimy bowel movements, chances are that nothing dangerous has happened to the baby. If the baby has a fever, vomiting, drinking milk is more difficult, the baby looks weak, or there are other symptoms, you should take your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
