Handling Of 2-month-old Babies With Little Bowel Movements And Yellow?
Tonight, I want to ask. Usually my 2-month-old baby poops 2-4 times a day but from 2 o’clock in the morning the pup is absent and it was just in the morning when the pup was yellow but the frequency was very small, not as usual.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the pattern of a baby's BAB can indeed change with age and this does not necessarily indicate the presence of certain diseases in infants. The greater the baby's age, the frequency of bowel movements will decrease. Changes in the frequency, consistency, and color of baby's stool can occur due to many things, for example changes in the mother's food (in infants who are breastfed), the change from breast milk to formula milk, vitamin supplementation to infants, baby teething, after immunization, or can also caused by certain diseases such as infections of the gastrointestinal tract.
You should pay attention to other symptoms that exist in your baby, does the baby look more fussy and do not want to drink as usual, does your baby cry or look in pain when defecating, does the stool look harder than usual, is there blood in the baby's stool? As long as there are no symptoms, you don't need to worry. If your baby experiences the above symptoms, or if your baby has not defecated at all for up to 3 days, then you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
For now, you can give ASI / formula milk as usual. When you give formula milk, make sure you brew according to the dose of milk with water according to the instructions listed on the package. Do not give solid food in any form to babies under 6 months.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
