1 Answer:

Hello Diana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Babies at the beginning of complementary foods often experience constipation problems. This can be caused by many possibilities, including:

Lack of fluid consumption (for example due to reduced breast milk, decreased frequency of formula feeding)
Weaning from breast milk and switching from breast milk to formula
Too much formula feeding
Complementary foods with foods that are low in fiber such as milk porridge and rice cereal, boiled carrots
MPASI uses foods that cause constipation such as unripe bananas or potatoes, red meat.


Banana itself can actually be a cause of constipation, it can also treat constipation. Giving underripe bananas (with green peels) is known to cause constipation in children, while giving ripe bananas (those with yellow to brown spots) can help reduce constipation. However, research on these two things has not really succeeded in proving both.


Here are some things you can do to help treat constipation in your child:

Make sure the child gets enough fluids. You can already give water or juice when your child eats.
Stimulate baby to move. You can help by moving the baby's legs such as pedaling a bicycle, motivating to crawl, increasing tummy time, etc.
Bathe the baby in warm water, then gently massage his / her stomach from above the navel to the lower left of the stomach.
Add fiber from high-fiber vegetables and fruits in the diet. Some fruits and vegetables that can help with constipation include apricots, peaches, prunes, pears, spinach, kale, peas, etc.
Do not give bowel stimulants without your child's doctor's permission


If your baby is still unable to CHAPTER for more than 5 days, straining continuously until crying, the baby cannot fart, the stomach is bulging and hard, there is vomiting, vomiting is greenish, the baby does not want to breastfeed at all, there is fever, there is a wound in the anus baby, immediately take your baby to the pediatrician.


So many answers from me, hopefully useful
