Thank you for the question.
Infants who are exclusively breastfed generally will indeed defecate less frequently and urinate compared to babies who have received extra food and drink. Provided that your baby's bowel movements still occur no less than 1 time a week, as long as your baby can still urinate, and as long as no other complaints appear more severe, such as colic, vomiting, difficulty breastfeeding, bloody stools, and so on, often this condition is not dangerous. Many experts say that this condition occurs because the components in breast milk are able to be absorbed very easily by the baby's body, so that it can more optimally support the growth and development, and very little needs to be left to be excreted through urine and feces.
Referring to your baby's condition, if your baby has previously experienced fever, cough, runny nose, and laziness to suckle, then the condition could indicate that he is experiencing an infection in the respiratory tract, such as a virus or bacteria. Other disorders of the airways (such as allergies, irritations, or aspirations of foreign bodies), infections of other organ systems, intestinal inflammation, food or beverage allergies, etc. can also trigger this condition. Because lazy to suckle, of course this condition can increasingly make your baby less frequent and small bowel movements.
Better, you check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician yes .. Worried, your child's condition occurs related to an illness that needs to be treated further by a doctor. In the meantime, you should not panic. The following steps can be done first:
Keep offering your baby to breastfeed frequently. Before he is 6 months old, don't give him extra food or drinks. Warm compresses to his neck and armpits so his fever subsides. Give him warm clothes to make him feel more comfortable. Keep your baby from the cold, dry air. , dust, smoke, pollution, and other substances that might make it allergic. Don't carelessly give children medicine without doctor's advice. Hope it helps.
