Decrease In Breast Milk Consumption In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Tonight … I have a baby just 5 months old, a guy and he drinks exclusively breastfeeding. But for the past few days he doesn’t drink as much as usual. And what freaks me out is when I open his diapers like there are blood spots. I think it might be because of the effect. she peed a lot. then I changed to using clodi, when I opened it, the clodi was actually stained with blood. but when she peed she never cried, her expression was just normal, not like people in pain. and the volume of her pees is a little bit. why is that my child?
Hello Aiiyu, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, whether your baby was recently circumcised / circumcised? Do you see reddish blood or pee spots on the baby's diaper that look like the color of a brick?
If your baby is recently circumcised, it is likely that the bleeding is coming from the circumcision wound. You will need to look further at the circumcision scar to make sure there are no open stitches or signs of infection. If there are open stitches or signs of infection in the wound, immediately bring your child back to the doctor who performed the surgery.
If what you see in your baby is pee that looks thick, brick-colored (orange), it is most likely urate crystals in the pee. Urate crystals in baby urine often occur in babies who are dehydrated or lack fluids. If this condition is what you find in the baby, try to breastfeed your baby longer or more often and do not breastfeed until the baby is asleep to make sure the baby is getting enough milk. If the urine is still small and thick and orange like a brick, you should take your child to the pediatrician for further examination and treatment.
If what you see on the baby's diaper is indeed red spots like blood, then this condition can be caused by an infection in the urinary tract, a wound in the urethra (for example, the child has fallen in a sitting position or hit the genitals and groin area), injury to the anus (anal fissure), etc. In this condition, the child should be immediately taken to the pediatrician for further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
