The Stomach Of A 9 Month Old Baby Often Sounds Like Water?
, why my baby is 9 months old. If I rock from the inside his stomach makes a funny sound like water? And now the poop is often 3-4 times a day? Does this matter? Is my child having too much fluid or something?

Beforehand, you need to pay attention to whether there is a change in your child's stool or feces. For example, there is a change in the consistency of being liquid (diarrhea) or whether the stool is mixed with mucus or blood. And also pay attention to how your child's condition looks weak and doesn't want to eat or is fussy when having a bowel movement. In addition, observe the smell of the feces, whether there is a sour or foul smell that accompanies it.
Usually in children aged 6-12 months, the frequency of normal bowel movements is 2-4 times per day. However, several things that can cause an increase in the frequency of this bowel movement are:
too much fiber in the composition of your baby's food. Food intolerance, for example, milk allergy. Gastrointestinal infection (gastroenteritis) Teething in babies often causes increased frequency of bowel movements because swallowed saliva has a laxative effect if there is currently a change in shape in your baby's stomach and possibly accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or fussiness, you should consult and check directly with a pediatrician so that management can be given according to your baby's needs. In the meantime, get enough fluids and keep your baby's hands and your hands clean to minimize the risk of infection
