I'm a new mom and my baby has been having irregular bowel movements for the past week. While they do have a bowel movement every day, I've noticed that the consistency and frequency is not consistent. I'm wondering if there are any foods or remedies that I can give my baby to regulate their digestion? I'm open to any suggestions or advice from fellow parents who may have gone through a similar experience.
Thanks in advance!
I've also had a similar experience with my baby's irregular bowel movements, and I found that incorporating more fluids into their diet worked well. I started giving my baby small amounts of water in between feedings, which helped to keep them hydrated and ease their digestive system. I also gave them more breast milk as it contains natural probiotics that help regulate bowel movements.
We also made some changes to their diet by adding more fibrous food such as banana and cooked peas, which have a high concentration of fiber making the bowel movement smooth and easy.
As others have already mentioned, speaking to your pediatrician is always the best option when it comes to making changes to your baby's diet. They can offer personalized advice based on your baby's specific needs and health history.
Hope this helps!
