Causes Of Children CHAPTER 13 Times A Day?
Hello .. I want to ask my brother 13 x CHAPTER brown texture whether it is constipation ??
How old is your sister? Is the baby newborn, a matter of months, or is it already over 1 year old? What do you mean by 13x BAB or 13x a day or what? For newborn babies, the color of stool / stool is blackish green, then after 2-4 days they turn brownish green, after 3-5 days they turn bright yellow when breast milk or light brown when consuming formula milk. The longer the stool color of the baby will be brown like adult feces, especially if it is MP ASI. For faecal texture can vary from slightly loose, lumpy, to coarse. The greater the age of the child the texture will be more similar to adult feces.
Unfortunately you did not clearly mention the age of your sister and the frequency of her bowel movements so I cannot confirm whether the color of your baby's faeces is still within normal limits or not. In general, the color of the stool that needs to be watched out is when the stool is slimy, bloody, green, red, white / very pale, and black. If there is a stool color change like this it should be checked directly to the doctor.
Regarding the frequency of bowel movements, this also depends on the age of your sister. Infants who are still exclusively breastfed can defecate many times a day up to 1x / week, this is still within normal limits as long as there is no change in color, texture, and the baby has no complaints. However, if the baby has consumed MP breast milk or is already above 1 year, the normal frequency of normal bowel movements is around 3x / week to 3x / day (as long as there are no complaints and no changes in the color and texture of the stool). The frequency of bowel movements varies greatly from one person to another. If there is a change in the texture becomes thinner and the frequency of bowel movements more than 3x a day, the possibility of diarrhea should be considered.
Constipation itself is a difficult condition in which bowel movements become less frequent (less than 3x / week), harder stools, small stools such as rabbit droppings, and difficult to remove. Sometimes people who experience constipation also feel abdominal pain. Constipation can be influenced by many factors such as lack of drinking, lack of fiber, lack of exercise / exercise, often ignoring the urge to defecate, being uncomfortable with the toilet, being stressed, worrying, and the effect of consuming certain drugs.
To help overcome constipation can be done in the following ways:
Meet the needs of body fluids Increase the consumption of vegetables and fruits Regular exercise, for children can be invited to walk casually, biking, dancing, or just playing as long as the child moves actively Teach children not to hold back Chapter CHAPTER Create a more regular eating schedule If your sister experiences color changes and faecal texture or there is a change in the frequency of bowel movements more than 3x / day or less than 3x / week, your sister should be consulted directly by a doctor so that further examination can be done and given appropriate treatment if needed yes.
Hope it helps you,
