The Solution To Dealing With Babies Eating Their Own Feces?
I want to ask. When a baby accidentally eats his own feces is dangerous? Myth is developing, he said, when he grows up he will be insane / crazy for the child, what is the solution? Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
If your child shows no symptoms of choking (example: difficulty breathing, looks shortness, difficulty making sounds when crying), chances are the foreign object swallowed does not enter the respiratory tract and possibly into the digestive tract. As long as there are no symptoms of vomiting, defecation with a frequency of more than 3 times a day, fever, the child becomes increasingly fussy or even weak, chances are the child's condition is fine.
Swallowed by foreign objects, especially dirt, is certainly at risk of causing infectious diseases because many germs can get into the body. Be aware of the symptoms that have been mentioned and do not hesitate to take your child to the doctor or pediatrician when he discovers these symptoms. In general, swallowing such foreign matter will not necessarily cause mental disorders in children in the future.
As a suggestion, parents are encouraged to be more careful in supervising their children so that the event of ingestion of foreign objects like this does not recur later. If your baby is less than 6 years old, keep giving exclusive breastfeeding according to the wishes of the child (on demand) or at least every 2 hours. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
