As explained a little above that the cause of diarrhea in infants is usually due to bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections.
This infection occurs because babies tend to have a habit of putting dirty hands or toys in their mouths.
Once your hands enter your mouth, germs can infect your digestive tract.
Well, fever is one of the signs that the baby shows that the body’s immune system is fighting infections that cause diarrhea.
Not all fevers in children should be reduced. However, an increase in body temperature higher than 38.9–40℃ can increase a child’s risk of becoming dehydrated.
4. The baby’s stomach sounds loud
One of the characteristics of baby diarrhea that you can quickly recognize is the sound of his stomach. Under normal conditions, a healthy baby does sometimes make a rumbling sound from his stomach.
A baby’s stomach rumbling is a normal reaction that comes from the contractions of the intestines while digesting food.
However, stomach sounds that sound irregular and louder than usual can be a sign of baby diarrhea. This condition occurs due to an infected baby’s intestines.
Another digestive problem that can be experienced by babies is a hard stomach due to bloating, nausea, and vomiting.
You may also find your little one has no appetite when he has diarrhea.
Your baby can’t communicate clearly with you. He can only cry when he feels uncomfortable. Likewise, when your child has diarrhea.
However, listen carefully to what the crying pattern looks like. The sound of a baby crying because he is hungry or sleepy will be very different from a baby crying because of pain.
The baby may feel pain if he suddenly cries loudly. On the other hand, a baby who is sick may also cry softly in a weak voice due to lack of energy.
In general, if he seems weak and very fussy or fussy than usual, this could be a sign or a sign that the baby is having diarrhea.
Well, those are five common characteristics that babies show when they have diarrhea. However, not all babies with diarrhea will show the same signs.
There may also be other signs that are not mentioned above according to health conditions.
Moreover, there are also signs or symptoms of diarrhea that may look like other health problems. If you feel unsure, you should immediately take it to the doctor for further examination.
