Infants Aged 1 Month Defecating When Drinking Formula Milk?
My baby is drinking formula … the chapter is still runny … what’s the cause
Thank you for the question.
At the age of 6 months, babies often only consume breast milk or other liquids whose consistency is liquid. Therefore, liquid chapter in infants at this age does not always indicate an abnormality. Provided that your baby defecates not too often (no more than 3 times a day), still contains pulp, and also does not contain blood or mucus, often this condition is not dangerous.
It's best if you don't give your baby formula milk or drinks and other extra food besides breast milk at a very young age. Worried, improper food or drink can even further disrupt the pattern of bowel movements, even triggering other health problems, such as nausea, vomiting, bloating, constipation, colic, allergies, difficult weight gain, and so on. Better, focus on giving him exclusive breastfeeding whenever he asks. Not only that, always wash your hands and clean your breasts before breastfeeding the baby. Also make sure the environment around the baby is always clean and place dangerous objects out of reach of the baby's hands.
If after doing the above efforts you find that your baby's BAB is still very runny, occurs very often, or appears accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Concerned, the defecation occurs due to other factors, such as inflammation of the intestine, malabsorption or intolerance, digestive infections or other organ systems, benign or malignant tumors in the gastrointestinal tract, electrolyte balance disorders, impaired immunity, hormonal disorders, etc. that need to get further handling of the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
