Handling A Large And Hard Baby’s Stomach?
Good afternoon. My child is a girl born SC 31 May 2019, the first 2 weeks every time I drink milk usually my child directly chapter. But it is not always loose chapters though every day chapters too. Coming home from the hospital my child still drinks milk but only briefly maybe only 5 times. And once wrong giving 50 ml of milk formula for 4 years old sister. And that last drink milk. Until now, exclusive breast milk. It has been +/- 2 weeks that the stomach is rather bloated and hard and sometimes fussy when I want to chapter and sometimes nausea and often spit up. I once brought it to Dr. Spa and he said there was no problem then it was receptive to Interlac. 4 days passed but still his stomach was big and hard despite being smeared with telon oil and gentle massage ILU massage that I saw from youtube. From Dr. Spa was referred to Dr. Pediatric surgery, and given aids hose chapter waiting for the following instructions. Is that the effect of mistaken love or what? Please explain, thank you very much.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Conditions experienced by your child, probably not due to consumption of formula milk. The use of formula milk is not suitable because it is too early, stale, or in children who are allergic to milk usually only cause symptoms of changes in the pattern of bowel movements. Either it becomes more frequent or diarrhea, or it becomes less frequent or constipated. There can be side symptoms such as vomiting, abdominal pain, stool that is hard or runny and the baby becomes fussy, but not until the stomach becomes bloated, hard, and needs help hose. Even so, actually as much as possible the baby is still given breast milk at the beginning of his life.
The condition that your child is experiencing might be due to an abnormality in the structure of his digestive system, be it in the form of a twisted intestine, a segment of the intestine that enters another part of the intestine, an abnormality in nerve spreading, narrowing, adhesions, or other forms of blockage. These conditions can occur due to various things, can be due to genetic disorders, exposure to chemicals while in the womb, can be due to premature birth or due to unknown reasons at all.
Our advice, you should discuss this directly with the doctor who treats it, because the possibilities that exist can only be ascertained by direct examination and support, such as for example ultrasound or X-rays. As a parent, of course you have the right to get information as clearly as possible from the doctor who treats your child, about what the findings of the examination, the possibility of diagnosis, and what treatment steps will be taken. This communication is important because in the end, the authority to determine what actions and treatments will be performed on your child are you as parents and doctors who treat them directly.
In the meantime, keep an eye on your child, ask actively what you can and should not do, and avoid giving any form of treatment without the doctor's approval. So, hopefully answering your question.
