Solution To Overcome The BAB Green Color In Infants?
hello my ank is 1 month over 14 days already this week my ank is green, is that normal? I have already taken it to the doctor. the color is still green, the texture is like porridge.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Green defecation does not always indicate a problem in the child's digestive tract. The following are some possible causes:
In infants who consume formula milk (which is usually fortified with iron), children's bowels can indeed be more greenish in color. If you just change the milk from breast milk to formula milk, the greenish chapter is quite common
In infants who only drink breast milk, green chapter can arise because of an imbalance in the amount of foremilk (milk that comes out at the beginning of breastfeeding) with hindmilk (milk that comes out at the end of breastfeeding). This often occurs in women who are hyperlactating or over-producing milk
In infants who only drink breast milk, green chapter can be caused by food eaten by their mothers which contain lots of green pigments
If you provide iron supplementation to children, bowel movements can also turn greenish
Greenish bowel movements can also occur when a child is teething
Other causes are gastrointestinal infections, post-immunization, allergies to formula milk consumed
To find out the right therapy for your child, of course it is necessary to find out in advance the cause of this greenish chapter. You can see the possibilities above and re-evaluate the possible causes of the green chapter in your baby. Not all of the causes above require treatment, but if indeed this green chapter occurs continuously, you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
