Why Does My Child Aged 2 Years, After Drinking Cereal Milk Always Defecate?
Hello My child is 2 years old. 4 days later after drinking (Energen) continue to BAB. The bowel liquid is constantly rich in juice. Whereas before it was suitable to use (Energen). I wonder how? Thanks.
Hello Ms. Tya,
Chapter whose frequency is more frequent than usual and is more fluid is called diarrhea. Diarrhea can be caused by various things, including gastrointestinal infections, food poisoning, allergies or food intolerance.
The product you mentioned is one of the dairy products that contain cereals. This product does not specify whether a two-year-old child may drink this product, but this product is not intended for toddlers. If you look at the composition, the first one is sugar, not milk. It is better not to give this regularly, especially if you use the product with the intention of meeting its nutritional needs without considering the content and intake of other nutrients.
This product is actually safe for consumption and can be an alternative breakfast for older children and adults. If your child experiences continuous bowel movements after drinking the product, you should stop it for a while. If you want your child to consume milk, give formula milk or UHT according to his age.
If you do not provide these products and your child is still having diarrhea, immediately see a pediatrician for further consultation. Maybe the cause is other disorders. Pediatricians can do questions and answers, physical examination and supporting examinations such as stool examination on your child. You can also consult your pediatrician about what milk should be given to meet nutritional needs.
