Good evening. R n My child is only 5 months 2 weeks, today he has two diarrhea. She also decreased breastfeeding, she just didn’t want to do it a little. And almost no signs of hunger. Her sleeping hours are also reduced, now it’s hard to sleep. But he looks healthy, cheerful, and lively. I wonder why? thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The frequency of baby's liquid bowel movements can still be considered normal if it does not exceed 3 times a day, without mucus or blood. As long as your baby still looks healthy, cheerful, and also lively, chances are that his condition is not dangerous.
The reduced frequency of breastfeeding for babies and difficulty sleeping in babies can arise due to various factors, including:
Discomfort in the digestive tract, for example due to canker sores, swollen gums, bloating, colic, nausea Discomfort in other parts of the body, for example due to fever, headache, itching, spasms, uncomfortable environmental conditions, such as too hot, too cold Too many naps, etc. It is difficult for us to identify exactly what is underlying your baby's complaint without doing an in-person physical examination. However, if a new complaint only occurred today, we recommend that you first take the following steps:
Continue to breastfeed the baby every 2 to 3 hours, offer even if the baby does not ask. Invite the baby to be active in activities and play during the day, so that the night becomes more sleepy and the quality of sleep improves Create comfortable environmental conditions for the baby Make sure the baby's hands are always clean Clean too Your breasts before and after breastfeeding your baby Wash your hands before coming into contact with your baby Avoid dirty objects that are prone to be swallowed within reach of your baby's hands Do not give your baby any additional food, drink or medicine before 6 months of age without direct advice from a doctor If complaints are not get better in 3 days after doing the tips above, don't delay checking your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to get the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
