It is imperative to consult a doctor when the baby presents :
- Less than two stools a week.
- Vomiting associated with constipation. This can be a sign of bowel obstruction.
- A loss of weight.
- Psychomotor development disorders.
- Abdominal pain to defecation or palpating her belly.
And, in any case when the mother is too worried. It is better to have a reassured and calm mother, than an anxious mother, watching for her baby's stool. This is a real improvement factor for the baby!
The doctor consulted will have recourse to additional examinations only in the case where he suspects a specific disease.You want to react, to give your testimony or to ask a question? Appointment in our FORUMS Baby or A doctor answers you!
