Overcoming The Baby Chapter That Is Not Smooth?
Hello, my baby is 43 days old, it’s been 3 days, isn’t it dangerous? My baby consumes breast milk + formula, but if it’s like the same thing as passing gas, it’s often
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Not defecating in babies can be dangerous, but it can also be not. Try to observe, are there any of these danger signs that appear in your child:
Not passing gas for more than 2 x 24 hours Abdominal pain Bloating, hard Vomiting If none of the danger signs above are experienced by your child, then most likely the condition is still considered normal. Consumption of formula milk in infants who are not even 6 months old often causes abnormal bowel patterns, can be constipation, but can also be constipated. Frequent bowel movements that your child is experiencing may also indicate a buildup of gas in the digestive tract that occurs as a result of excessive intestinal work in digesting formula milk.
Therefore, if you can still breastfeed your child, you should avoid giving formula milk as much as possible until your child is 1 year old. The components in breast milk have been designed very perfectly by God so that they do not cause disturbances to your child's digestion. In addition, it is easier for the nutrients in breast milk to be absorbed, so your child's growth will be more optimal and his immune system is also more awake. Giving formula milk in combination with breast milk can actually cause your child to want to breastfeed less and less directly. As a result, your milk production will also decrease, and in the end, you will find it difficult to return to breastfeeding your baby.
In addition to relactation (breastfeeding breast milk again), other steps you should take to help your child's bowel movements are smooth, namely by doing baby massage, how to:
Lay your baby on a comfortable mat with minimal clothing Use special baby heating oil to make it more comfortable Gently massage the baby's tummy area in a clockwise circular motion Move the baby's feet as well as pedaling a bicycle Repeat this method 1 to 2 times a week However, if after taking the steps above, your child still does not have a bowel movement, even for more than 2 weeks, you should immediately consult a pediatrician. Avoid giving any medications (including laxatives) to babies before they are 2 years old unless they are prescribed by a doctor.
