Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In some children, giving a fairly large volume of fruit juice can indeed make the stool consistency more fluid and the frequency of bowel movements will increase. This condition is actually not always dangerous. Although indeed, no condition makes parents worry.
The question now, besides diarrhea, are there any other complaints your baby has, such as slimy or bloody stools, colic, bloating, vomiting, decreased appetite, fever, and so on?
If any of the above complaints that your baby is experiencing, you should also be vigilant and check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician, yes. With a deep physical examination, doctors can often rule out other possibilities that can also trigger diarrhea, such as channel infections digestion (can be due to viruses, bacteria, or parasites), intolerance, food poisoning, food allergies, malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, drug side effects, and so on. After that, then the right handling can be done so that the diarrhea improves.
For now, you can do the following steps first:
Do not carelessly give the baby medicine without a doctor's advice Give your baby breast milk and water more often Give it also a healthy and nutritious MPASI, prioritizing the administration of MPASI which has a soft and easy to digest texture. Pay close attention to the cleanliness of baby food and drinks. help huh ..
