The Cause Of Babies Aged 1 Month Often Experience Abdominal Pain?
my child is 1 month old because his stomach hurts a lot, especially after he has defecated for two days
Hello Muhammad Alfian, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Abdominal pain in infants is not a normal condition. Indeed, a baby cannot state that his stomach hurts, but you can be sure when you touch his stomach whether the child cries and acts or not.
Abdominal pain accompanied by frequent bowel movements and changes in consistency can be caused by infection of the digestive tract or intolerance to food. If accompanied by the presence of blood it can be caused by dysentery or intussusception.
If abdominal pain continues to arise, accompanied by fever, more severe diarrhea, accompanied by mucus and blood, and also accompanied by the child becomes difficult to suckle, it is advisable to immediately bring your child to the hospital emergency room to get immediate help. If the complaints mentioned are not available, it is advisable to let your child see a doctor for further evaluation because abdominal pain in the baby is not a normal condition.
In the meantime, aside from taking your child immediately to the doctor / emergency room, keep giving your child milk. When using formula milk, it is advisable to use formula milk that is low in lactose temporarily. It is not advisable to give any medicine to your child without the advice of a doctor.
I hope this helps.
