Constipation Due To Soy Milk?
Tonight, to be honest, my child is 7 months old and is allergic to cow’s milk. After that, I changed to using soy milk, but after using it, the chapter became difficult … it’s been 2 days before the chapter … does soya cause constipation? How to handle it?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Changes in bowel patterns in infants are often a worrying thing for some parents. However, it should be noted that not all problems are related to the CHAPTER pattern which rarely indicates something dangerous.
As the baby's age increases, the frequency of baby's BAB generally begins less frequently, it can even reach 5-7 days before BAB. This is related to the development of the baby's digestive system, changes in digestive reflexes, and the availability of the digestive enzyme lactase so that the baby begins to be able to digest and absorb nutrients better.
The following danger signs that need to be watched for:
Constipation for more than 2 weeks
Accompanied by accompanying symptoms in the form
There is a lump in the anus
There is blood in the stool
There is a wound in the anus
In the meantime you can do:
Keep breastfeeding and ensure fluid intake is met
Make the child more active by occasionally changing the position of the child, moving the child's feet with movements such as pedaling
Bathing with warm water
If the complaint does not seem to improve or you are worried, it helps you check your child to a pediatrician to get further examination and treatment related to your child's condition.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
