Cause BAB Only Once A Week In Children?
my child pooped, yes, once a week, how come he defecated, he was always unclean
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, is there a sudden change in the pattern of defecation (previously the passage went smoothly), since when did this change in chapter pattern occur, are there certain triggers that cause this chapter change pattern? Are you just giving milk to your baby or are you giving formula milk too?
Babies who defecate once a week may not necessarily experience certain problems with digestion. It must be known in advance the pattern of CHAPTER children before. If indeed from the beginning the child defecates once a week, the child does not feel certain disturbances during bowel movements, then maybe the pattern of bowel movements is like that. If your baby is only breastfed, only babies who are breastfed can defecate less frequently (up to once every 7-10 days).
If the child is always crying when defecating, the chapter looks hard and solid (should have a 4 month child CHAPTER still liquid or thick like pasta), then the possibility of children experiencing constipation. Must be sought further causes of this constipation in children. The following are some of the possibilities:
formula feeding for children or replacement from breast milk to formula
cow's milk protein allergy
solid food or MPASI (at this age you should not give MPASI except on the advice of a pediatrician)
presence of certain diseases in children (eg intestinal obstruction or children having hirschprung)
If the baby always cries when defecating, hard and congested, you see the blood in the stool or wound in the baby's anus, the baby experiences vomiting and drinking is reduced, the amount of urine decreases, there is a decrease in body weight or weight does not increase, or if indeed this constipation problem has occurred since the baby was born, immediately take the baby to the pediatrician to get further tests.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
