Stool Color For Babies Aged 7 Months?
Good morning, permission to ask. A 7-month-old baby is already packed, why are there two colors in his stool? The first one came out green and then it was bright yellow over time like when it was still breastmilk. Oiya my child had been drinking milk powder because I stayed for training for 2 months. Morinaga platinum milk
Good morning, thanks in advance for the question.
Basically every baby will have a different BAB pattern and is influenced by many things, including the presence of food and drink intake, activities, and health conditions. When giving MPASI at the first time the baby's body will certainly need time to adjust so that sometimes changes in the pattern of bowel movements, texture, color, etc. But generally this happens only temporarily. What you need to pay attention to is when there are signs such as blood spots on baby's stool, very liquid consistency, constipation or difficulty in bowel movements, mucus in the stool, and increased frequency of bowel movements that are very more than usual.
To start giving MPASI also should be introduced in a certain order and manner since the baby is 6 months starting with giving soft or refined foods such as rice porridge, baby cereal, etc. Initially offer food that does not contain added sugar and salt, and introduce a single type of food, give a gap of about 3-5 days for each new type of food. This can be at the same time to see if your child has an allergy to a certain type of food and see the reaction of the body, after the introduction of food can later be gradually to food in a combination of several types. After the food is smooth, give food finger food, which is food that is cut to the size of the mother's finger so that it can be grasped and eaten by the baby. Then the next stage is more complex advanced food. Give food with a combination of complete nutrients to support its growth while still monitoring the baby's reaction to each type of food they consume.
If there are suspicious signs of bowel movements such as changes in consistency, frequency, there is mucus and blood to cause the baby to have a fever, dehydration, look weak, and sick then immediately consult a pediatrician nearest.
Thus the information that we can convey, thank you.
