Children aged 2 years indeed often experience digestive disorders, especially constipation. This can be caused by:
Lack of fluids, less drinking. Even though the child seems to drink a lot, but in children who are active and often sweat, the drink is not necessarily enough.
Children who eat less fibrous foods such as vegetables and fruit
Children who eat more carbohydrates such as rice, noodles, flour-based cakes.
Not suitable with certain types of milk
Medical conditions such as: hypothyroidism, disorders of the digestive system
Vitamin B deficiency
Before you decide to give certain types of milk, you should first evaluate the causes above, so that treatment is easier.
Goat milk is not recommended for children under 1 year of age, by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Giving at the age of 2 years should also only be recommended by a doctor and with certain rules.
Goat's milk has a much lower folic acid content compared to cow's milk, therefore ekan is more prone to cause anemia. If it is recommended by your pediatrician to use this type of milk, then make sure in advance that the product you are using has additional folic acid in it.
Give your child more and frequent drinking
Some types of fruit can increasingly add to the digestive tract smoothly, such as: papaya, watermelon
Train your child to sit on the toilet at the same time every day, especially in the morning, so that the digestive tract is accustomed to dumping at the same time. Preferably in the morning. This will train children to defecate without having to wait for heartburn first.
Consult this milk change with your pediatrician
The dosage should be adjusted to your doctor's recommendations
Thus the explanation, hopefully it helps.
