Decreased Baby’s Appetite, Weight Loss And The Baby Vomits After Eating?
Greetings doctor. Now, my baby is only 10 months. Already more than a week he had difficulty defecating even though I already had lots of vegetables in his MPASI, his appetite dropped and sometimes when he pooped he was in pain even though it came out just a little. Then this afternoon I gave him food as usual, and just now he was crying until he threw up. I was surprised because he threw up MPASI this afternoon (distance from eating and vomiting 7 hours). Does that mean that for 7 hours his digestion did not digest food? Is that normal? Does it have something to do with decreased appetite and difficulty defecating? Please help. thanks.
Good morning, thanks in advance for the question.
Babies who have started eating MPASI food will generally experience a change in bowel pattern because the digestive tract begins to adjust to the new food, this change will take place temporarily but will be different for each baby. It's good you can also pay attention to patterns and cycles in your baby, so that if things happen that are out of the ordinary you can immediately find out.
Some things that can cause a difficult baby CHAPTER:
- diet and drinking: both because of the transition from breast milk to formula milk, or the introduction of MPASI / start learning to eat solid food, and adequate daily fluid intake>
- daily activities, babies who are not actively moving can also affect the digestive system
- the ability of the baby's body to digest incoming food
- the presence / absence of certain medical conditions, such as food allergies, etc.
If your baby has a condition of pain such as vomiting, fever, weight loss, blood in the stool and if the constipation lasts for more than 2 weeks, then you should immediately see a doctor or pediatrician.
Tips for you to deal with a difficult baby BAB include:
- let the baby be more active
- Gently massage the lower part of the baby's navel, which is around 3 fingers from the navel
- if the baby is constipated after drinking formula milk, try changing to a different brand
- make sure you have enough fluid
- multiply vegetables and fruit
