No Bowel Movements For 3 Days In Infants 2 Months?
My child is 2 months old, 3 days no chapters, then the baby is fussy. What causes the doctor then how is the treatment?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Changes in bowel patterns in infants are often a worrying thing for some parents. However, it should be noted that not all problems are related to the CHAPTER pattern which rarely indicates something dangerous.
Frequency of defecation in infants around 2 months of age is generally less frequent, it can even reach 5-7 days before bowel movements. This is related to the development of the baby's digestive system, changes in digestive reflexes, and the availability of the digestive enzymes of lactase so that babies begin to be able to digest and absorb nutrients better.
The following danger signs that need to be watched for:
- constipation more than 2 weeks
- accompanied by accompanying symptoms in the form
- throw up
- weight loss
- There is a lump in the anus
- there is blood in the stool
- there is a wound in the anus
In the meantime you can do:
- remain breast-fed and ensure fluid intake is met
-make the child more active by occasionally changing the position of the child, moving the child's feet with movements such as pedaling
- bathe with warm water
If the complaint does not improve or you are worried, you should check your child to a pediatrician to get further examination and treatment related to your child's condition.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
