Infants Aged 6 Months Have Irregular Bowel Movements And Sweaty Heads?

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a 6 month old baby cannot control the passage of urine from his bladder (usually a new child will have control of the bladder at the age of 2-3 years). Urine is produced at any time by the kidneys and accommodated in the bladder. The bladder that stretch will give a signal to the brain to urinate. This is when someone can feel the sensation of wanting to pee. This has not happened to babies 6 months. Babies can urinate when the bladder is fully filled (so that the urine looks a lot), but babies can also urinate when the bladder is filled only slightly (so that only a little urine). Urinating a little or urinating directly on a baby is not something you need to worry about. The more you need to pay attention is the amount of urine that comes out. If the baby does not drink fluently (for example, milk comes out a little, or the baby does not want to drink milk again), the baby vomits or diarrhea, the amount of urine can be reduced and the color becomes very concentrated. This shows that the baby needs more fluid intake so you are expected to provide more milk (or other fluids) for your baby. Another thing you need to consider is whether there is a foul odor in baby urine or whether there is blood in baby urine. If you encounter this, you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
Regarding babies who often sweat, you also need to pay further attention whether the air around the baby is hot or humid? Babies do have a faster metabolism than adults so babies will sweat more easily than adults. Excessive sweating in babies is especially often found when babies sleep. If indeed you see a baby sweating a lot, you can try to reduce the temperature of the room around the baby (by turning on the air conditioner for example), or installing a fan near the baby. You are also advised not to overlay clothes on babies. Give the baby clothes that are thin and absorb sweat, change clothes if the clothes are already wet with sweat.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
