Hello Mr. Iwan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Constipation or hard CHAPTER is a problem that is quite common in children. Constipation is more common in children who drink formula milk compared to breast milk because breast milk is easier to digest than formula milk. At that age, your child should have started eating family food or adult food. It is important for your child to eat enough fiber, such as vegetables and fruits (except bananas). Father's child also needs to drink lots of water so that the resulting stool is softer. In addition, you can take your child to the toilet to defecate more often even though he has not said he wants to defecate. Holding a bowel movement can make the stool harder because the water content in the stool is absorbed. If constipation is accompanied by vomiting, weight gain does not go up well, stomach is tense or swollen, severe abdominal pain, or changes in the color of urine or stool, immediately bring your child to see a pediatrician. The doctor will ask you for the disorder experienced in more detail. The doctor will then examine your child directly. If there is a certain suspicion, the doctor may order further examinations. The doctor will explain to you about problems with your child and provide appropriate therapy for your child.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
