The Child Did Not Defecate For A Week Without Constipation Symptoms?
Evening, I want to ask. My child aged 20 months has not defecated a week, routinely defecates every 2 days. Currently recovering from cough u0026amp; colds. I wonder why? He still eats as much as usual, drinks lots of water and uht / pasteurized milk, wants to eat fruit too. Is it because I changed the type of milk to pasteurized milk huh? Please help, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Difficulty defecating in children can have many possible causes, including one of them due to improper feeding or drinking, for example:
Just adapting to the texture of solid food. Eating too much bananas or zalacca. Less drinking. Less eating fruits and vegetables. Unsuitable milk consumption, and so on. Indeed, it is possible that the replacement of milk that you do trigger difficulty defecating in your child. However, in addition, there are many other factors that can make defecation difficult, including:
Crohn's disease (chronic inflammation of the intestines) Celiac disease (digestive disorders triggered by consumption of gluten) Hypercalcemia (excess calcium in the blood) Hypothyroidism (hypoactive thyroid gland) Holds bowel movements frequently (for example in children who have just been taught toilet training), etc. CHAPTER your child does not experience other complaints, for example colic, vomiting, decreased appetite, hard stomach, and so on, this condition can generally still be overcome with natural treatment at home, namely by:
Limit the time for giving milk, give your child plenty of water. Give your child lots of vegetables, fruit, seeds to eat. Invite children to be active, don't stay too much, let alone play on gadgets. If you are teaching your child to do toilet training, do it with Be patient, do not scold the child because it can make him stressed and afraid to defecate Avoid giving children a bowel-smoothing medicine without advice from a doctor Gently massage the child's stomach in a clockwise direction with a special baby heating oil so that digestion is smoother However, if the complaint does not improve After making the above efforts, you should get your child checked directly into a pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
