The Cause Of Children Aged 1 Year More Often Suckle And More Easily Angry?
Hello, I want to ask why my child is suckling more often and it takes a long time to suckle, my child is 1 year and 8 months old and my child is more often angry like annoyed? I wonder why
Thank you for the question.
When a child is more than 6 months old, his nutritional needs can no longer be fulfilled simply by consuming breast milk. Therefore, at the age of your child at this time, he should have been adept at consuming a variety of family foods, and will rarely feed him.
The condition of your child who often suckles very often and very long can trigger many factors, for example due to hunger, habits, dehydration, feel uncomfortable with the surrounding environment, feel jealous or lack of attention (for example if you are busy dealing with something other than your child ), etc. If your milk flow is too little, this can also make it more difficult for the child to be satisfied when breastfeeding, so that he will suckle longer and more often.
Meanwhile, the condition of your child who is more easily angry or upset can occur due to various factors, such as the condition of the environment that is not comfortable, the condition of the body that is not comfortable (such as pain, tightness, nausea), lack of sleep, hunger, wet diapers, and so on . Mental disorders, such as when children are accustomed to seeing violence in their environment, when children are often educated too hard, and so on.
Our advice, you do not panic in response to this. Take the following steps to improve your child's condition:
Give your child a regular breastfeeding schedule every day, for example if your child's age is 1 year 8 months, then you can feed him 2-5 times a day. Limit breastfeeding time, so that a maximum of 15-30 minutes each time suckling. According to various literature, the effective time of breastfeeding a child is only about 15-30 minutes. The rest of the children just pacify. Also give him a variety of healthy and nutritious foods. Busy your child with a variety of activities, according to his age. Do not educate children with violence, position you as their best friend, treat them as well as reasonable people and have their own interests, do not always be dictated to obey your wishes Approaching the age of 2 years, start weaning the child slowly, give him an understanding that the more he grows, then he must learn independently and not always suckle to the mother. If the child is angry, try to listen and understand what he wants. If the will is good, try asking him to say good way, so that you want to obey his will If his will is not good, do not obey his will, while telling him what is the reason. However, if the steps above have not been successful in overcoming your child's complaints, you should check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the right treatment
I hope this helps.
