How Many Times Is Normal Bowel In Infants Aged 1 Month?
At night I was worried that my baby had not been in a 10 day chapter at the age of one month ….. exclusive breastfeeding. What needs to be checked or is there a way to stimulate the chapter.
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The existence of a history of a baby aged 1 month who has not defecated in 10 days is a condition that can increase parents' anxiety and worries. So if your baby has not defecated in 10 days, this condition may be a form of constipation in the baby, especially if it is marked by the form of hard and dry stool. If this constipation continues, it is often accompanied by complaints of fuss and anxiety in infants. However, if your baby is currently not experiencing comorbid complaints in the form of fussing, looking in pain, or continuing to cry, then this should be immediately consulted or handled directly by your pediatrician.
Some things that trigger constipation in infants can be:
1. a baby in a condition of illness or fever
2. babies get solid food before 6 months of age
3. ASI is given alternately with the other side of the breast before one side of the milk has been used up
4. Baby is less mobile
5. babies drink less milk
6. Intestinal disorders, nervous system digestive disorders
Often, breastfeeding mothers give part of the breast milk to one side of the breast and before the breast milk runs out on the side of the breast, the mother changes breast milk to the other side of the breast, this often causes the end of the milk or hind milk to be drunk by your baby and triggers complaints of constipation. Therefore, you should give breast milk one side of the breast until it is complete and then give one other side.
However, all of this needs to be ascertained directly by your pediatrician so you should consult directly with your pediatrician for your baby's clinical examination and evaluation. The doctor will do a physical examination and if necessary, supporting examinations such as ultrasound or radiological examination can be done. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors to provide care and treatment.
For now, you can work out exercises to stimulate your baby's digestive contractions by making foot movements move closer and closer to your baby's abdomen with your legs bent at the baby's knees and then gently moving away and closer. Perform this movement repeatedly and routinely, about 4-5 times a day, about 5 minutes. In addition, practice tatur every morning and evening before bathing.
