My child has had 3 days of watery stools (diarrhea), can you say diarrhea ?? Thank you..
Hi Anisamardiani .. Thank you for the question given.
BAB in newborns needs attention because it can describe the baby's health condition. In the early weeks of life, the baby's bowel movements are still not regular and can CHAPTER up to 4 times per day. When born, the baby's feces will be blackish green which is called meconium. After the baby has consumed breastmilk, then on the 2nd to 4th day the baby's bowel movements are brownish green. Until in the end, if the baby continues to consume breast milk, the bay will turn bright yellow with a texture like clots or more loose.
Babies who are breastfed will have softer, but not watery, stools. If the defecation is watery continuously in large amounts, it can be suspected that the child has diarrhea. If this happens continuously then it's a good idea to get your child checked by a pediatrician. So that the doctor can carry out an examination directly and if it is necessary then a stool check can be done. Meanwhile, keep giving enough milk to the baby, pay attention to the color and number of bowel movements of your baby
