How Many Times Is The Baby’s BAB Frequency 2 Months?
Hello, my baby is 2 months and 21 days old. When I was born, the frequency of my baby’s chapters is very often 6-8 times a day. After 40 days the chapter frequency is reduced, it can be once a day, it can be 2 days once its consistency such as pasta, thick. Stepping on the age of 2 months 6 day, why yes the frequency of the chapter is like coming back again like a newborn, it can be 5-6 times, at least 2 timesThe consistency is runny, but sometimes there are like chillies, sometimes slimy My son is exclusive breastfeeding, when I work, breast milk is given using a milk bottle that has been sterilized Already I had time to give zinc drop 0.2ml per day, but there was no change
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the frequency of bowel movements, consistency, and stool color of each baby can be different and can indeed change at any time. Increasing the frequency of bowel movements to 5-6 times a day does not always indicate the baby is experiencing diarrhea or infection of the digestive tract. Sometimes other conditions such as baby teething, after immunization, sensitivity to certain foods eaten by the mother, can also change the frequency of baby's BAB into more and other causes are not dangerous at all for the baby. Often infections in other places (such as respiratory tract infections or cough colds) can also change the frequency of baby's BAB. The consistency of watery feces in infants who are still breastfed is normal and feces that are like chili seeds (or called seedy) are also very normal in infants.
You need to pay attention to other symptoms in the baby, such as whether the baby has vomiting, fever, decreased appetite for milk, the baby becomes more fussy and difficult to calm, and or other symptoms that bother the baby. If you see any of these symptoms, you can take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation and management. If there are no other symptoms that accompany changes in the frequency of your baby's BAB, then there is nothing you need to worry about.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
