The Normal Frequency Of Bowel Movements In Infants Aged 4 Months?
Morning, my baby is 4 months old … before a normal pub 1 day, but it’s already been 1 week. My child is pub shari, 4,5,6,7 or 8 times … definitely pushing. r nMy child is exclusively breastfed, for the texture of the bright yellow stool sometimes it’s a bit dark and useless … how, is it normal pub that often?
Good morning, thanks for the question
According to research babies getting exclusive breastfeeding will indeed have frequency of defecation (BAB) more often than children who get formula milk. At the age of 4 months, babies can CHAPTER 1-8 times per day or more. There are also babies who are breastfed but defecate once a week, but are still said to be normal conditions.
What is more important to be observed by mothers about digestive disorders in infants is not how much frequency CHAPTER every day, but the consistency of stool, a sign of adequate fluid, and growth of the baby.
If babies often defecate, but there is no change in stool consistency, ie stools are soft with little pulp and yellow, then it is classified as normal. Also the value of signs of dehydration, for example, the frequency of breastfeeding decreases, urine decreases, eyes appear sunken, tears do not come out when crying, children no longer want to suckle, appear weak, it must be suspected of infants experiencing dehydration. Then also value the growth of the baby's weight. Babies who have chronic diarrhea will be stunted due to more nutrients being wasted.
If these three things have no problem, then the mother does not need to worry if the child defecates more often or maybe less often. As the baby's digestive system develops, the frequency of bowel movements will be more regular.
So, hopefully this information can be useful for you
