Management Of Flatulence In Children Aged 3.5 Years?
Morning, I want to ask why my bloated child has not healed huh? It’s been a week. Though bloating only arrives at night, when the first 2hr bloating accompanied by excessive vomiting as much as 3-4x in one night, after that vomiting only once at 2-3 o’clock in the morning and go back to sleep. After vomiting is it true that children should be given warm tea …? Why is that? My son is also 3.5 years old, his BB has stagnated at number 13, sometimes it goes up by 1ons and sometimes it goes down by 1ons. Even though he is not too thin but I am worried, before thank you for the answer ..
Thank you for the question.
Flatulence accompanied by vomiting in children is usually caused by digestive disorders, for example due to food allergies, digestive infections, dyspepsia, inflammation of the intestine, intestinal obstruction, malabsorption or intolerance, and so on. It could also be that these complaints arise due to side effects of drugs, infections of other organ systems, or simply due to choking and the influence of the type of food or drinks they consume.
In general, the optimal weight for children aged 3 years and 6 months ranges from 12 to 20 kg. So, if your child's weight is currently around 13 kg, of course this is still within reasonable limits.
The good thing is, you did not panic excessively addressing your child's condition. Take the following steps to make your complaint improve:
Feed the child a little but often Give too much to drink Do not give children food that is difficult to digest, contains excessive gas and fat, is too spicy and sour, especially if it is processed uncleanly and is not perfectly cooked. Don't also get used to giving children food and instant drinks and preservatives Apply warm oil on a bloated stomach After eating, encourage children to not lie down or run around too much, at least give a break 1-2 hours There is no special appeal to give warm tea to children who are vomiting. In fact, giving warm tea which is acidic to some sensitive children can further aggravate the symptoms of vomiting and bloating. Therefore, give only reasonable, not too much, if you want. If the above efforts are still not able to alleviate the condition of your child, we recommend that you go to see it directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that further evaluation and treatment is done ...
I hope this helps.
