Why Does An Exclusive ASI Baby 5 Months Foamy And Slimy?
So this way. My daughter often born early often pooped. A day can be 6-8x with a sometimes slimy texture, and a little bit. And after I noticed when he pooped out of foam, it was foamy. But all is normal, no sleep disturbance, breast milk continues to drink. No fuss. Just want to ask, is it really dangerous or not? Thanks 🙏🏻

BABY slimy and bubbly babies can occur due to several things, namely:
1. There is a lot of lactose in the baby's digestive tract. Occurs as a result of the baby obtaining most of the breastmilk foremilk. ASI is divided into 2, namely foremilk and hindmilk. Foremilk breast milk is breast milk in the first part that the baby sucks when the breast is full. Whereas hindmilk is part of ASI after foremilk, characterized by more thick ASI. Foremilk contains more lactose, while hindmilk contains more nutrients and fat needed for its growth and development.
2. Gastrointestinal infections caused by bacteria or parasites.
3. Celiac disease, which is the body's immune system attacks gluten (a protein found in flour and wheat), thus damaging the lining of the small intestine. This condition causes disruption of fat absorption, causing foaming in the bowel.
You can try breastfeeding the baby on one breast until the breast is felt empty and then moved to the breast next to it. This is so the baby gets hindmilk breast milk every time he feeds. Pay attention to hygiene when breastfeeding a baby, before breastfeeding wash your hands and clean the breasts. Take a shower and replace the breast. Also pay attention to the cleanliness of baby toys and other items that are put into the mouth.
If in one week the complaint has not improved after undergoing the above advice or the baby becomes fussy or baby has a fever or the baby is showing symptoms of lack of fluids, consult your pediatrician immediately. For further examination and handling.
Thus hopefully useful.
