Jenis dan Warna Najis Bayi

Terbaca satu topik di SI mengenai warna najis bayi, mendorong saya nak cari info sedikit pasal warna-warna najis bayi. Seharian gugel after gugel and baca punya baca, i come across satu article yang cukup komprehensif berkenaan najis bayi daripada Dr Jay Gordon, MD FAAP yang bertajuk The Color of the Day: Solving Bowel Movement Mysteries’. Banyak juga artikel pasal najis bayi ni tapi kebanyakan tidak menerangkan secara detail. Maybe ada lagi kot, tapi saya tak larat dah, ngee! So saya just copy je apa yang telah beliau tulis tu tak larat acik nak translate.

Oleh kerana artikel tu takda gambar-gambar setiap jenis najis bayi tu, saya cuba cari gambar-gambar yang boleh accompany setiap penerangan tersebut. Cuma ada satu je yang tak jumpa. So hopefully leh jadi rujukan pada kalians. Mungkin la warna najis bayi kita tu takkan exactly sama kan cam dalam gambar tu, tapi mungkin kita boleh bandingkan warna tu berdasarkan warna keseluruhannya najis tu, tak kisah ler kalau ada warna belang-belang ke hape..

Sticky, tar-like and green or black
This is meconium. The first stools of a newborn will be this consistency and color. It is what is present inside the bowels of a newborn upon birth and will clear itself out within the first couple of days and represents the “byproducts” of building an entire human being for nine months.

Greenish or Yellow/Brown, grainy or seedy
This is the transition between meconium and a regular breastfed stool and begins as mom’s milk is coming in on the second, third or fourth day of life. There may be three stools each day, ten, or even twenty. Occasionally, even a baby in the first week of life will skip a day and have no bowel movements at all. Call your doctor to discuss this even though it is normal. This does not require a dietary change or supplementation of a breastfed baby.

Light yellow to bright green, loose/runny, curdy, lumpy, seedy, creamy, mustard-like
These are normal breastfed stools. The consistency, frequency and color vary from day to day. My wife described the smell as “curried yogurt”. Opinions on this odor description differ widely.

Frequent Watery Stool often “Greener” than usual
How can you spot diarrhea in a baby who has loose frequent stools every day? This type of poop is “diarrhea” in a breastfed baby. It can be due to a virus, a bowel infection, stress, anxiety or a food intolerance.

Hard, pellet – like, presence of blood or mucous
This is constipation in a breastfed baby and is so very rare that I cannot recall ever seeing it in a baby who is receiving breastmilk as a sole source of nutrition, as are most babies in the first six months. It could be related to a food allergy. Formula fed babies get constipated much more often and may even have harder bigger stools like older kids and adults. Getting these stools softer is a balancing act of great proportions.

Black stools often accompanied by constipation
This is the result of iron supplementation. Iron fortified infant foods and infant vitamins can cause constipation. A healthy breastfed baby does not need iron supplementation. The iron in breastmilk is much more bioavailable than any other form.

Red streaked stools
This usually comes from bleeding in the lower intestine or rectum. Most often it is caused by rectal fissures which are tiny “cuts” around the circumference of the anus. This can be a reaction to dairy in mom’s diet. Elimination of all dairy is the first line of defense in this situation. I have seen countless babies who had blood in their poop which resolved when mom stopped all dairy products and returned with even a small amount of milk or cheese. Other dietary changes may be needed for breastfeeding moms. Formula fed babies lose blood from the lower intestine when they drink cow milk formula and some have the same losses on soy formula. Occasionally, this “micro-hemorrhaging” can become visible as blood streaking on the surface of the stool. Persistent or increasing blood in the stool or blood mixed with mucus (described as “currant jelly” stool in the texts) requires an immediate call to your doctor.

Green, frothy stools
This can be a result of a hindmilk/foremilk imbalance. A true imbalance is rare. It is often seen accompanying a forceful letdown. Lactation consultants will help moms find a nursing pattern which works to combat this problem. If letdown it too forceful in the early weeks, the solution can be to allow milk to leak into a cloth diaper during letdown, then latch baby back on. Feeding two to three times off the same side may also show improvement. Caution should be used with same side feeding as it can decrease supply.

Green, mucousy stool
This can be a result of a virus. Often the only sign we see of a virus is in the green stool. This is evidence of malabsorption in the intestines. Watch for how many days and with what consistency it is occurring. With a virus, it will run its course over a few days and begin to improve.

Dan ini ada sedikit info bagi ibu-ibu yang risau tentang bayi mereka yang tidak membuang air besar sehingga berhari-hari lamanya. 😉

“..There is a great range of frequency of bowel movements with exclusivelu breastfed infants, rangin from a couple of times a day to several days. There completely healthy nursing babies that gave a bowel movement once a week, once every ten days, or even a few that go a bit longer. If your baby is healthy, developing well, nursing well and the consistency of the bowel movement when it does make its appearance is soft or loose, then do not be concerned. It is not constipation if it arrives in soft form. Constipation Would arrive in pellets and hard formed pieces...”

“.. Stools in breastfeeding babies are predictably greeen, brown, yellow or orange..”
