The Cause Of Baby’s Feces Is Pale Yellow, Sometimes Greenish And Seedy
my baby is 2.5 months old and the color of the bowel is generally yellow but there are materials such as pale yellow seeds even like white, and sometimes also green and the frequency can be more than 6 times a day, until now my baby is still exclusively breastfed. is this reasonable?
Thank you for the question.
Pale yellow baby feces, sometimes greenish, seeded, and more frequent, are generally experienced by young infants who still consume exclusively breast milk. This condition can occur due to the effect of differences in the composition of breast milk, which is also indirectly affected by the type of food and drinks you consume.
In rare cases, faecal changes such as your baby may also indicate digestive infections, food or beverage allergies, intestinal inflammation, carbohydrate malabsorption, benign or malignant tumors in the gastrointestinal tract, metabolic disorders, and so on.
Provided that frequent CHAPTER like this happens not more than 10 times a day, as long as the occurrence is also not prolonged (no more than 3 days), and as long as it is also not accompanied by high fever, vomiting, colic, do not want to suckle, slimy or bleeding feces, and other severe complaints, you better not panic first. Overcome your baby's condition so it does not repeat, how to:
Keep giving her exclusive breastfeeding, don't add any other food or drinks
During breastfeeding, only eat foods that are healthy, clean, and perfectly cooked, never eat foods that are too spicy, preservative, instant, especially half-cooked
Do not also carelessly take medication during breastfeeding
Make sure you always clean your hands and breasts well every time you breastfeed
Also diligently clean the tongue, gums, and oral cavity of the baby, and keep the environment around the baby to always be clean
If you find any of the above danger signs, you can check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it is handled well, yes. The rest, if complaints improve with the steps above, then do not rush to check the baby to the doctor for his own health (so not contracting a disease, including COVID-19 which is currently endemic).
Hope this helps ...
