Use Of Honey For Babies Aged 7 Months?
Night. My baby is 7 months old, I just found out that babies under 1 years old should not consume honey. so a few days ago I once gave him natural honey, after that my child had constipation until 5 days did not defecate, but now it starts to defecate again but it can take 4-6 times a day, and now my child suddenly coughs dry but does not have a fever, cough also until vomiting. Is this normal or what should I do. Thanks.
Honey is not recommended for infants less than 1 year old. This can be caused because honey may contain certain bacteria that are not good for babies, and can cause certain symptoms such as constipation and decreased appetite. Besides it is also not good to add sugar or other sweeteners in infants younger than 1 year.
If your child has diarrhea at this time it may still be a symptom of the honey you give your child. These symptoms can occur for a long time if not treated by a doctor. Persistent diarrhea can cause dehydration. Besides coughing cough on your child can also be affected due to certain food allergies, for example if your child is not suitable to consume honey. This can also affect a child's cough.
Some other conditions that can cause your child's condition such as:
Respiratory tract infections
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of the condition that your child is experiencing, then you should check your child directly to the doctor, so that the doctor can examine the condition of your child directly and provide appropriate therapy for your child. Give enough fluids to children such as breast milk and water. Avoid children from exposure to dust and smoke. You can give rubbing oil to children in the chest and abdomen.
