The Appetite Of Babies Aged 14 Months Decreases Whether The Effects Of The Drug?
Afternoon doctor. I have a 14 month old child. These days, my child is having trouble eating too little milk. At the same time my child is coughing a cold, I have brought it to the doctor, the pain has started to improve, my throat is also getting sick again, because I often cough. But why is the appetite and drink still not normal as usual, even though the cough was not as bad as the first time it hurt. Please advise. thanks.
Hello, Mr. Marco, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. We will try to explain about the question that you asked us.
In the condition the baby is not yet able to express what he wants specifically, so that sometimes parents do not understand what the baby wants. There are times when a baby suddenly does not want or does not have an appetite, some of the causes are:
the baby does not want to eat like for example because he is tired, there are many things that attract his attention or are wanting to play food, are sick or have not entered his hour to eat do not want food that he thinks the baby's new food is teething so he wants trauma soft food on certain foods / have experience with eating unpleasant food (hard, spicy, undercooked food, etc.) In babies who are recovering, usually their appetite will indeed decrease, but usually will improve by itself within 1 week after he get well. Even though the baby cannot make choices in his life, at least he has been able to control what he wants to eat or what he does not want to eat. So that when parents give him food, then parents should be friends and not scold babies (so as not to appear unpleasant experiences).
Look for various ways to create a pleasant situation for the baby so he wants to eat. And because babies are very easily bored, make a varied diet every day. To be able to bring up appetite in infants, parents need to understand the nature of the baby. If signs appear in the baby such as vomiting, weight loss in 2 consecutive months or signs of dehydration, it is appropriate for you to take your baby with you to see a doctor or pediatrician.
Thus we can convey, hopefully our answers can help you. thanks.
