How can I help you?
my sister gave birth to baby boy 6 weeks back
baby did not pass motion from last 5 days
and also he has some puss coming out from ears
please advise on this
The frequency and number of stools passed by infants is individualized.
The average frequency starts to reduce as the cross 1 month of age.
Accordingly if he is asymptomatic, is not irritable, feeding well and has no distension of the abdomen, it does not indicate any serious problem.
However presence of pus discharge from the ear concerns me.
His external and middle ear cavity need to be visualized with audioscope and rule out possible infections.
The doctor inaddition to verifying ear infection can also prescribe low dose laxatives for transient use to normalize his stool habit.
