Diarrhea In Infants When Starting To Consume Formula Milk?
Hello doctor, nice to meet you.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In infants, diarrhea is often associated with improper formula feeding. This diarrhea can show that the baby has allergies, intolerance, or malabsorption of the components contained in the formula milk. It could also, diarrhea occurs due to digestive tract infections that enter the baby's body through formula milk that is not processed hygienically. Not always, diarrhea in babies is dangerous. As long as the intensity is still reasonable, ie not more than 5 times a day and does not exceed 3 consecutive days, and also not found mucus or blood in the stool, and other severe symptoms, such as colic, vomiting, dehydration, etc., conditions such as this can often be treated with natural treatments at home.
Giving your fruit juice to your baby can also make babies defecate more often and thinner. Or, in addition to the effects of formula milk and fruit juice that you provide, it can also be diarrhea that your child experiences due to other causes, for example intestinal inflammation, viral or other bacterial infections, side effects of drugs, and so on.
It should be clarified beforehand, how many times a day does your baby have diarrhea? Is the stool consistency very fluid? Does mucus or blood appear in the stool? How many days has your child experienced diarrhea? Are there other warning signs mentioned above?
As a first step, you can first do the following steps:
Keep giving your baby milk as often as possible. Breastmilk production can return to stable if more and more breastfed babies. Also milk your milk when not breastfeeding your baby Give your baby a healthy MPASI and balanced nutritional value Give your baby enough water Keep your baby's food and drink clean Also make sure the toys and objects around the baby are in a clean condition Do not carelessly provide anti-medication diarrhea in infants (except on doctor's advice) If your baby's complaint does not improve within 1-3 days with the steps above, or the danger signs of diarrhea appear as mentioned above, do not delay checking your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given proper management huh
I hope this helps.
