Difficult To Fart In Infants Aged 3 Months?
Hello .. I want to ask .. I have a baby I want to be 3 months old … Why does an old man want to fart every time he cries and cries … the cry is like a really sick person if you want to fart. It has been going on since he was born 2 weeks. Please answer because I’m only having a baby first
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. In infants, actually complaints of difficult bowel movements are rarely complained, because we don't know when someone, especially a baby, wants to pass wind. Conditions that may occur and are more commonly found are babies having bowel movements or constipation. Constipation in infants is more common and is indeed marked by babies who are fussy when defecating, appearing in pain, straining forcefully, and the texture of the stool is also more hard and small in size. In the case of your child, he could actually want to defecate, but because of constipation so that comes out only the wind.
There are many causes of constipation in infants, including:
Still imperfect digestive system Eating formula milk Consuming solid food before 6 months of age Having digestive disorders There is a nervous breakdown in the intestine Lack of fluid consumption Abnormalities in the structure of the digestive tract
If it is caused by an illness, there will usually be follower symptoms such as fever, vomiting, weight loss, blood in the stool, or lumps in the anus. To be sure, we suggest that you consult your child with a pediatrician, especially since this has been going on for a long time. Your pediatrician will do a history, physical examination and the support needed to narrow down the possibilities. If it is serious enough, surgery may be needed as a treatment.
Meanwhile, it is important for you to continue breastfeeding, and have it checked by a doctor immediately. However, if it is difficult to defecate, it is most likely that it is difficult to defecate, and that can be a dangerous condition if left unchecked. Don't delay too long, and if you find it difficult to get pediatrician services, at least check with a general practitioner first. So, hopefully answering your question.
