Causes Of 4-month Old Baby’s Odor?
Good afternoon Hello Doctor, I am Ariyani, her mom is khabib, I want to ask you about my baby, it hasn’t been 2 days yet, and it causes farting smell, if the baby hasn’t eaten and only Asi doesn’t usually smell, that’s why? Thank you, I am waiting for your reply.
Good evening Ariyani, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. But smelly farts on babies is not something to worry about, especially when there are no other danger signs that accompany it.
Although only breast milk is consumed, still the function of the digestive tract is decay. All food and drinks that come in will be taken by the body and the rest of the body will experience the addition of residual substances and decay in the stomach. However, if by chance your baby is rarely having a bowel movement, then the stool will accumulate and will automatically smell when he gas. Regarding the rare BAB itself does not need to worry, because even still normal if the baby defecates once in 10 days, as long as there are no signs of danger.
The danger sign we mean is if your child's complaint is accompanied by fever, the child becomes fussy, weak, has a hard or even accompanied by blood, a weight loss or no weight gain, vomit especially green, stomach enlarged, blushed or seemed to push when defecating, and the like. If this is the case, then what you need to do is immediately take your child to the pediatrician to be given further treatment.
Meanwhile, no need to worry, just give ASI as usual, make him more active by moving his feet while lying on his back following the movement of the bicycle pedaling, bathe in warm water, and keep away from the sick. So, hopefully answering your question.
