There Are Bloodstains On The Stool Of An 8 Month Old Baby?
During the night, I want to ask.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you currently breastfeed your baby?
Basically, if you don't breastfeed your child, the medicine you take won't have any side effects on the child. If you are still breastfeeding your child, then actually cough medicines and colds that are sold freely also generally will only cause symptoms such as drowsiness and fussing in infants alone, will not cause spotting of blood on the stool. Another effect that can occur is a decrease in your own milk production.
Regarding the bloody stools of babies, this can be caused by several possibilities:
presence of fissure (sores / tears) in the baby's anus
there is a wound on the nipple
occurrence of food allergies or allergies to formula milk given
side effects of giving certain vitamins to babies
less common causes are infections of the baby's digestive tract or more serious illnesses such as intestinal intussusception
If you see bloodstains only once, then there's really nothing you need to worry about. If you see a lot of blood, you see bloodstains appearing repeatedly in the baby's stool, there is a change in the baby's bowel pattern (for example, the stool becomes more frequent and more or more thin), then you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
