Hello Jubaidah, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Normally, children can not be given food before the age of 6 months, because antibodies produced by the intestine to prevent the introduction of allergic triggers into the blood circulation are still little produced at the age of under 6 months, so it can cause complaints such as watery stools and abdominal pain after consuming food solid. Watery stools with a frequency of 5 times in 24 hours in your child can already be categorized as diarrhea that can be caused by infections, food allergies, and milk intolerance. Based on the cause of the infection, diarrhea can be divided into several types:
Dysentery is inflammation of the intestine caused by bacterial infection of Shigella or parasite. Enamoeba histolytica which causes diarrhea accompanied by blood or phlegm Giardiasis is inflammation of the small intestine caused by a parasitic infection called Giardia lamblia. which causes bloating, abdominal cramps, and nausea followed by fatty diarrhea attacks Cholera is inflammation of the intestine caused by bacterial infection of Vibrio cholerae which is characterized by colored diarrhea such as rice washing water, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and can cause dehydration. I suggest taking your child to a pediatrician so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as vital signs, physical examinations to assess the degree of dehydration, and additional checks if necessary such as laboratory tests of blood and stool examination, so that treatment can be given according to the diagnosis your child.
The things you can do are:
- Continue to provide food and drinks as usual, small portions but frequent meals (approximately 6 times a day)
- Eat low-fiber foods
- Can provide a mixture of sugar and salt solutions at a dose of 5-10 ml / kg body weight every liquid chapter, to restore electrolytes that have come out when diarrhea
- Finding out foods or drinks that are suspected to cause allergies
- Maintain cleanliness of food, drinks, cutlery, and hands so as to reduce bacterial contamination
If you find the following signs, immediately take your child to the nearest health facility:
Diarrhea accompanied by blood or prolonged diarrhea Abdominal pain Severe vomiting repeatedly. High fever. Drastic weight loss. Bring on severe symptoms of hydration, such as feeling very thirsty, dizzy, palpitations, weakness, convulsions, and loss of consciousness. Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
