Yellow And Foamy Feces And Often Defecate Baby Aged 10 Months.?
Afternoon, I have a baby with a age of 1 month, 10 days, in two days, the chapter is yellow and foamy, often defecates … Is that normal?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Yellow, foamy baby feces, accompanied by frequent urination, is not always a dangerous thing. This condition, if the occurrence is still in a reasonable frequency (no more than 3 times a day), and also does not cause your baby to experience other severe complaints, such as fever, colic, vomiting, hard stomach, dehydration, slimy or bleeding stools, and etc., often is not a dangerous condition. The reason may be related to digestive disorders related to the type of food or drink that your baby consumes, or also the food and drinks you consume (if you still give your baby exclusive breastfeeding).
Try to overcome your baby's complaints with the following tricks:
ONLY give her exclusive breastfeeding, no need to add food or other drinks, including water or formula, except on the advice of a doctor
Be diligent in washing your baby's hands to keep them clean, also keep other objects that are vulnerable to swallowing within the reach of a baby's hand
Before contacting a baby, wash your hands first
Clean your breasts before and after breastfeeding the baby
Do not carelessly give babies drugs without a doctor's prescription
However, if after undergoing the above tricks your baby's condition seems to be deteriorating, or signs of danger appear as we have mentioned above, you should be vigilant. Some types of diseases, such as gastroenteritis, intolerance, malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, poisoning, to viral or bacterial infections in other organ systems can also cause complaints similar to those that your baby is experiencing at this time. Of course, this condition needs further treatment from a doctor or pediatrician. Therefore, if you find a condition like this happens to your baby, immediately consult a doctor huh ..
I hope this helps.
