Cleaning The Stool Of Babies Who Are Fast Asleep?
What will I do if the baby poops while he is fast asleep?. R nThank you doctor
How old is your baby? Are you wearing cloth or disposable diapers? Babies can not say that they will poop / defecate, as well as urinate / wet the bed. Sometimes in the middle of falling asleep, the baby may defecate and then go back to sleep again.
If this happens, you should still clean and change the diaper. If it is not possible to clean the poop with water, you can clean the baby's genitals, groin, rectum, and bottom with a damp cloth or with a wet tissue. Then dry with a clean cloth or dry tissue and put in a clean diaper. Later after the baby wakes up, you can clean again with water as usual and change the diaper with a clean one again.
It is better not to delay cleaning the baby's poop because if the poop is left too long, it can trigger diaper rash, infection in the skin, the baby feels uncomfortable, and if it is a woman, the poop can enter the vagina and cause infection in the vagina.
Hope it can help you,
