How to avoid tummy problems?

Why do constipations often bother very young children? Firstly, this is due to the fact that their gastrointestinal tract has not yet learned to work in full force, and there are few good bacteria there. The second reason is that before the introduction of complementary foods, the intestines of the child do not have the opportunity to “train”, because neither breast milk nor the mixture of substitutes contain substances that stimulate his work.

How to be? The solution is special foods and drinks.

To cope with constipation, all babies from birth should be given healthy drinks: children’s teas with fennel and chamomile, dill water. From 3 months the crumbs from dried apricots, prunes, dried fruits (the usual compote without sugar, diluted about 5 times) will benefit the crumbs.

Water your child 2-3 teaspoons before feeding, in heat, when he sweats or worries.

This question arises in many mothers who feed babies breast milk substitutes. Suddenly constipation in the baby causes the “wrong” mixture? To dispel doubts, consult a pediatrician.

Usually, doctors do not advise to give up the baby’s usual product, but sometimes a medical mixture is added to it – for example, Frisov (Friezeland Nutrition) or Bifidus (Semper). Doctors recommend completely switching over to such mixtures only in case of severe constipation. In other cases, special products are best combined with ordinary ones.

For example, if usually 6 measured spoons are taken for a portion of the mixture, then you can take 1 spoonful of the therapeutic mixture and 5 – the usual one by mixing them in one bottle. With strong constipation, the proportion of therapeutic mixture increases, and the usual – is reduced.

When the problem leaves, it will be possible to return to normal nutrition.

Helps with constipation and fermented milk mixtures – for example, “Nan fermented milk” (Nestle), “Gallia Lactofidus” (Danone). They create a healthy environment in the intestines, but only a doctor should prescribe them.

Both infants and “artificiality” are given supplemental food not earlier than 4–5 months. Children who are worried about constipation, first give vegetable or fruit puree, juice, and only then porridge.

And do not forget: the products must be introduced gradually and one by one, watching the reaction of the baby.

Often the cause of constipation in babies becomes intestinal dysbiosis. In such cases, even special products may not produce results until the child is treated.

That is why in case of “difficulties” you should first consult with your doctor.
