The Baby Hasn’t Had A Bowel Movement And Has A Cold Cough?
My son is 1 month 12 days old, my son hasn’t had a chapter for 4 days, how do I get my baby and my child to have the fluu0026 cough, how do I get a good night’s sleep and not fussy? what should I do
Hi Sarah Isnawati,
First, babies aged less than 6 months do not yet have a regular pattern of bowel movements like adults. Babies who are exclusively breastfed can defecate less often because breast milk is very well absorbed in the baby's intestines. The switch from breast milk to formula milk can also cause disturbed bowel movements because the content in formula milk is different from breast milk. Lack of breast milk intake and premature solid food can also cause obstructed bowel movements. Babies are said to have constipation (constipation) if the consistency of bowel movements is harder, looks painful when they want to defecate, or is more fussy.
Second, flu and cough in babies can cause babies to be more fussy because their breathing is disturbed. Flu and cough in infants most often arise due to viral infections that can improve on their own in infants who have good immune systems, especially infants who are exclusively breastfed, but can also be caused by bacterial infections and allergies.
Given the condition of a more fussy baby, it is better for you to consult further with a doctor to get an immediate and more thorough examination so that it can be handled according to your baby's current condition. In addition, some suggestions that may help:
if you are formula feeding your baby, stop giving formula and just give breast milk more often as the baby wants. If the milk that comes out is not enough, stimulate milk production in the ways in the following article, avoid giving solid food before the age of 6 months, bathe the baby in warm water, avoid placing the baby in an air-conditioned room, dilute the mucus by dripping salt water into the tip of the baby's nostrils and then suck it out. baby snot with a special suction device lay the baby in a prone position and gently pat the baby's back to help reduce nasal congestion while sleeping, elevate the baby's head position slightly by stacking a few towels/cloths on the head. avoid using a high pillow that bends the baby's airway suck the baby's snot with a special suction device You can read related articles: signs of a baby having difficulty defecating, flu in infants, overcoming colds in infants
I hope this information is helpful.
