Overcome Diarrhea In Infants Aged 40 Days?
my son is 47 days old. But he kept having diarrhea. Eeknya runny and like there is dregs. I checked it with the midwife, there was no change. Even though I was given diarrhea. But his stomach keeps sounding like he’s hungry. My child drinks exclusive breast milk. What should I do so that my child can eat normally. And no more diarrhea … Poor seeing it. As a result of the frequent wheezing, his buttocks were irritated like a bad bruise. Every time I wipe, I will cry. Ask for advice. Thank you
Hello, Azizah Azzha, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Babies who drink exclusively breastfeeding have looser stools than those who drink formula milk. However, if the baby's stool changes to become more watery and watery than usual, it could be suspected that the baby has diarrhea. Common causes of infant diarrhea are infection with rotavirus or other germs in the baby's digestive tract, baby food allergies, or deficiency of certain enzymes. To be sure, check with your doctor immediately, especially if the baby has other symptoms such as fever, rash or redness on the body, vomiting, fussiness such as pain, diarrhea mixed with mucus or blood, or symptoms of dehydration such as: weakness, if you cry, you don't come out of tears , dry lips, and cowong eyes. Treatment of diarrhea will depend on the cause. A sounding stomach indicates increased bowel movements, it could be because the stomach is empty or the intestines are irritated.
What you can do is:
1. Immediately check the baby to the doctor
2. Make sure the baby is not dehydrated. Keep drinking breast milk first every time he defecates.
3. Observe if the baby has the signs of dehydration as I mentioned. If so, take him to the doctor immediately.
4. Evaluate the types of food you eat. There are several things that must be considered when breastfeeding mothers, the following is an article about recommended foods for busui and dietary restrictions for busui.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
