Hello, thanks for the question.

Pain due to surgery, especially moderate surgery and large operations are very unpleasant indeed. Logically, if an action is painful for an adult, the baby can feel the same. Pain that is felt is usually directly proportional to the severity of the action taken.

Actually there are many kinds of painkillers (analgesics). Some are made of opioids and some are non-opioids. However, opioids are very strong and are only allowed to be used on instructions and under the strict supervision of a doctor. Opioids are also not recommended for babies unless they are very urgent.

The remaining choice is non opioid analgesics. Included in this group are paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin for example. Ibuprofen is not given to babies less than 6 months old. Aspirin is also not given to children younger than 12 years. Then the remaining choice is paracetamol.

Paracetamol has anti-pyretic (heat-reducing) and analgesic effects. The analgesic effect of paracetamol can overcome the level of mild pain. The dose for infants is 10-15 mg / kg body weight, can be given 3-4 times a day. There are drug preparations in the form of syrup or drops. Pay attention to the dosage listed on the package. Pay attention if the baby experiences symptoms of allergies after taking medication, immediately take it to the doctor.

Another thing that can help relieve pain is by holding and stroking the baby when it hurts. This is because according to research, mother's touch can calm the baby.

If after giving paracetamol, the pain still seems to be felt by the baby, immediately consult a treating doctor.

Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
