The Cause Of Infants Aged 2 Months Rarely Defecate?
Morning, I want to ask: my baby is 2 months old now, his BB is increasing and he is not fussy, his milk is smooth, but why is his bowel not smoothly from birth until now, sometimes his bowel is 3 days 1 × sometimes 1x a week, his BAK is smooth and always farting … is it dangerous to defecate in my baby? Or is there an intestine that doesn’t work in my baby? Please advise. Thank you
Hello Nurhayati, Teirma, for the question.
The bowel habits in every baby cannot be compared because one baby's BAB is different from the others. Babies who receive exclusive breastfeeding will usually rarely defecate. This is caused by the nutrients obtained from breast milk that are fully used / absorbed by the digestive tract so that what is left and comes out as stool will be less. BAB baby patterns can range between 2-5 times per day, but there are also babies who defecate every few days with a large number, and there is also a BAB every time the diaper is changed. Infants who rarely defecate breast milk are still considered normal if the baby does not experience other symptoms and weight gain is maintained properly. Therefore, for now there is nothing you need to worry about.
You need to worry about your baby's condition if the condition is rare BAB is accompanied by flatulence or palpable harder, the baby seems to push every chapter, hard stools, fussy babies, or infants rarely urinate. In these conditions, please you immediately check the condition of your baby to the doctor for further examination. For now, please continue to breastfeed your baby while paying attention to other symptoms experienced by your baby.
Hopefully this information helps you.
