Overcoming Constipation During Complementary Foods?
Is it recommended that additional fats such as olive oil or unsalted butter be recommended for a 6 month old baby? Because what I read 6 months is only limited to introducing food, and it is better if additional fat is given to babies over 8 months … is it true? because at this time my child aged 6 months and less a week is already constipated .. I’m afraid that it will start to get more difficult, the chapter will be more difficult … mhn the advice …
Hello Mrs. Shelats.
Thank you for the question.
Constipation or constipation is difficulty passing stools. Constipation in infants is characterized by:
crying when defecating straining hard during bowel movements feces that come out very little decreased appetite As for the causes of constipation in babies:
Dehydrated formula has a solid meaning for food allergies to certain medical conditions such as congenital indigestion. Is the mother's baby currently exclusively breastfed or has he been given other foods? Consult a Pediatrician for smebelit problems that your baby is experiencing.
To provide additional oil in solids, can be given at a rate of not more than half a spoon per day.
MPASI for 6-9 months of age is given with the following recommendations:
3 times given natural food plus breast milk as desired the baby's food portion is increased gradually to reach 2/3 of the size of 250cc per meal avoid adding flavorings or MSG avoid giving cow's milk and honey until the baby is 1 year old the baby may be given fruit should not be in juice but given the crushed fruit. Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
