Infants Aged 4 Months Who Do Not Consume Breast Milk For 2 Days?
in the morning I asked my baby not to defecate for 2 days … my baby is 4.5 months old and full breast milk … is that normal … and how can my baby immediately defecate
Babies do have a different bowel frequency than adults. In general, the frequency of defecation of infants is less frequent than adults because the type of food contains less fiber so that the dung (stool) produced is less. The frequency of defecation that is rarely can be less frequent in infants who consume breast milk because the component of breast milk is very easily absorbed by infants so that the dregs produced are even fewer compared to infants who consume formula milk.
The condition is still classified as normal, however you must be aware of the frequency of frequent bowel movements and are accompanied by the following complaints:
Babies appear in pain when defecating Babies cry loud Fever Bloody stools There is a sudden change in the pattern of large bowel movements. Check your child's doctor immediately if symptoms arise above so the doctor can ascertain the cause of bowel obstruction in your child and provide appropriate treatment if needed.
