My baby of 16 weeks old she is always coughing and pooing after sucking breast, please what's the cause?
Coughing after feed is simply ASPIRATION. The way to prevent such is to avoid force feeding a
child, ensure babies gets breast fed before falling asleep.. Don't turn baby upside down etc If it happens, simply lean the child forward with a little pressure on the chest high.. If no improvement or child turning blue, present at the emergency
unit of any hospital immediately.
A baby can poo up to 8 times in a day, indeed after each feed and it is perfectly normal. On
the other hand too, the baby may not poo
at all for 2 weeks and it is also perfectly
normal. I'm talking about an
exclusively breastfed babies. The stools
are normal and the baby is well, no other
symptoms observed.
