Toddlers Who Consume Breast Milk Only Once A Week, Is That Normal?
Good morning, my child is now 14 months old and still full of breast milk, since he was 4 months old, my child has regular chapters once a week, is this difficult or normal? Previously I was not worried because until now my children are active and non-fussy. Please explain, because I’m starting to worry that there’s nothing to digestion. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Toddlers who are still breastfed are still considered normal if defecating once a week. Actually there is no definite standard of how many days a baby normally has to defecate. But the mother must consider is whether there is a change in the frequency, consistency, color, and smell of bowel movements in your baby. Babies are said to have constipation or constipation if the stool is harder, bigger, looks round, or the baby looks in pain when defecating.
Beware if the baby is infrequently including defecation and accompanied by the following complaints it is necessary to evaluate the baby's condition, including:
3. Weight loss
4. Blood in the stool
5. Lump in the anus
6. Wounds on the anal lips
To prevent constipation in children, the mother should be sufficient for the child's bodily fluids, provide fiber-rich foods that are abundant in fruit vegetables, and do a gentle massage on the baby's stomach.
That's all, hope you can help
