Cause White Child Bowel Movements?
In the afternoon, my child is 3 months old. Only breastmilk. This afternoon the poop was white like vomit, so sticky but didn’t smell like poop. Just 1x pup. Is it dangerous or not? I read, I have to go to the doctor immediately. But I want to wait for the second poop first. Hopefully it’s normal again …
Stools that are whitish and sticky, need to get an examination from a doctor immediately.
It should be noted, that the brown stool color is obtained from the presence of bile which is produced in the liver and distributed to the intestines, which is used to help the digestive system.
The absence of bile in the intestines is what makes the stool unusually white in color. The causes are: disruption of bile production and distribution to the intestine.
Several conditions cause this disorder in young babies
Congenital disorders of the bile ducts Tumors or cysts in the bile duct and its surroundings Inflammation of the bile ducts Hepatitis You should immediately bring your baby to be examined more fully by a doctor.
Keep breastfeeding the baby at will. Pay attention to common baby signs, for example: fever, yellow baby, fussy Make sure the baby is not dehydrated Hope it helps
