Hi Bojo Na Ling .. Thank you for the question.
Difficulty defecating in infants can occur in infants with exclusive breastfeeding. If the child is still consuming breast milk exclusively, defecation can occur only once per day or every few days. This is normal as long as the child's development is good, the frequency of BAK is still good, and the child is not fussy.
Meanwhile, children who start consuming formula milk or solids may experience difficulty defecating. Children having difficulty defecating can be characterized by: the child seems to be straining excessively when he wants to defecate, he rarely defecates, the texture of the stool becomes harder and drier, the stomach feels harder, bowel movements can be accompanied by blood because there is irritation to the anus. If there are symptoms as mentioned above, it is better for the mother to have her child checked by a pediatrician. The doctor will perform an examination directly and if necessary it can be diluted by abdominal ultrasound. From the results of this examination, the diagnosis can be established.
Meanwhile, what you need to do:
Keep giving breast milk to children If the child is getting to know complementary foods, then provide vegetables and fruit to the child. Enough water needs for the child Avoid taking drugs without doctor's advice Hopefully useful
