Normal Or Non-existent Baby’s Feces Are Partly Shaped Like Seeds?
I have a baby for 1 month drinking morinaga formula but there is some feces for seedling 2gtu, is that a problem?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Seed-shaped or goat-like droppings for babies usually indicate that the baby is experiencing constipation or difficult bowel movements, especially if followed by a decrease in the frequency of bowel movements, hard stools and babies who appear to be in pain during bowel movements.
This condition can be caused by:
Infants who consume formula milk Infants consume solid foods Lack of fluids or dehydration Milk allergies or food allergies Disorders of the digestive system
In the case of your child, the possibility of complaints that he experienced was due to intake of formula milk he consumed. This happens because the protein content contained in formula milk cannot be digested properly by the digestion of infants, especially those who are still 1 month old. This condition is actually not very dangerous because over time, your baby's digestion will adapt. What you can do at home to overcome this condition is to keep the child active by moving his feet as he is pedaling a bicycle, gently massage the abdomen, and bathing with warm water. If this condition has caused pain, weight loss or increase is not enough, immediately consult a pediatrician to get further treatment.
Regarding that, we remind that all doctors throughout the world through the World Health Organization have agreed that there is no better nutrition for babies up to 6 months old than breast milk. So if you actually can still express breast milk, but are constrained because of busyness, do the ASIP or breast milk. If you give formula milk because you feel your milk isn't coming out, don't give up quickly. Naturally for mothers who have just given birth for breast milk does not immediately come out, but continue to stimulate the expenditure of milk, avoid stress, and consult the lactation doctor or pediatrician to be given further treatment such as drug administration. So, hopefully answering your question.
