An infant up to several days may not go to the toilet. The pediatrician explains this by the fact that breast milk is absorbed entirely and there is simply nothing to walk. If the baby does not worry and does not complain about the tummy, then there seems to be nothing to worry about. And if a child cries and legs? What then? I’ll tell you about one good recipe that will help with constipation in babies.
Why is it difficult for a child? It’s constipation
When my baby was 4 months old, I decided to treat myself a little. From the very birth of my child, I refrained from raw vegetables and fruits, pickles and fresh juices. Also tried not to abuse fatty meat and candy. My menu was simple: porridge on water or milk, soups, steamed vegetables, boiled meat, eggs, milk, kefir and tea with sugar. For tea, I usually ate a sandwich with butter.
Butter always smeared on butter a little bit: fat after all. My husband decided to show attention to me, saying that I deprive the little one of this, I cannot spread more butter, and he himself made a powerful sandwich for me. And the next day, the child barely went to the toilet. I did not immediately understand what this is connected with, but we had obvious constipation. After a few days of torment, it dawned on me that butter was to blame. I have not yet fed the baby, so there was nothing to sin.
At first she applied the vapor tube. But she helped the first day, and the next day to put it again? Then I decided to use mylets. Pinched off a pea-sized piece of baby soap and gently inserted it into the anus. Baby just a few minutes went to the toilet without difficulty. A neighbor (doctor) advised me this remedy. Soap is absolutely harmless. Dissolving, it loosens the feces. The child does not have to strain much. Soap you need to take only baby so that there is no redness. Aromatic tinted soap will not work.
Vegetable oil: simple and effective
But this is again a one-time solution to the problem. It did not suit me. I rummaged through all the healthy lifestyles and found a simple recipe for constipation in babies. Every morning before the first feeding it is necessary to give the child sterilized vegetable oil according to the scheme: the first day – 1 drop, the second day – 2 drops. The number of drops is increased every day by one, gradually bringing to half a teaspoon. She continued to give the baby half a spoonful until the chair returned to normal.
Oil, it is desirable to take home. It can be bought from those who beat for themselves sunflower oil or from grandmothers on the market. But if this oil is not, then take the store. I sterilized the oil like this: I poured it into a jar and put it in a saucepan with cold water. Pan moved to low fire. 30 minutes after boiling water turned off the stove. Oil left to cool at room temperature. Absolutely safe tool.
Now I always have in stock sterilized vegetable oil. When problems arise, I give to children in the morning on an empty stomach, 1 teaspoon each (they are no longer babies). As long as the baby is breastfed, food should be treated with caution. Remember, an enviable slice of tomato or pickled cucumber can deprive your child of sleep and cause a lot of inconvenience. It is better to abstain and not torture your child with a tummy disorder. The problem can cause even one extra candy.
