The belly and intestines is one of the most fruitful sources of disease in childhood. Only prevent tampering, and, all things being equal, the baby will be healthy and flourish, and not need the help of doctors or physical.
There are many causes that can lead to these conditions, many of them belong to the system of the mother, some to the baby. All are capable, in large measure, to prevent or remedy. Therefore, the most important thing a mother should not be ignorant or misinformed about this issue.
It is the prevention of these conditions, however, acting mainly dwelt here, to let the mother always consider and act upon the principle that the prevention of disease alone belongs; the cure for the doctor . For the sake of clarity and reference, these disorders will be discussed as presented:
For the baby to the breast:
The stomach and intestines of the baby may be disturbed in breast milk becoming unwholesome. This may arise from the parents out of health, a circumstance that will manifest itself as well as the more immediately interested in their welfare, it is only necessary just to allude to it here. Suffice to say, there are many causes of a general nature which may owe its origin, but the most frequent is undue lactation, and effects on both mother and child fully dwelt upon.
The anxiety of the mother’s mind that her milk will be harmful to its character, and deficient in quantity, giving rise to flatulence, colic, convulsions and sometimes even in the baby. A fit of passion in the nurse will be followed by an attack often complain colon in children. These causes, of course, are temporary, and when removed the milk becomes a healthy and sufficient for the child as before.
Sudden and great mental disturbance, however, from time to time cast out milk altogether, and in a few hours. To Mrs. S., aet. 29, a fine healthy woman, of fair complexion, was confined of a child. He had a good time, and an abundant supply of milk for the child, who continued to breastfeed until the following January, a period of three months when her milk suddenly disappeared. This circumstance is asked the medical assistant because he could not locate any type of disease, but the milk never returned, and a nurse became necessary. The following spring the husband of this lady did not, an adversity which had been impending since the date the milk disappeared, on which day the crazy state of affairs became known husband to the wife, a fact that both explained the mysterious disappearance of the milk.
Articles unhealthy diet affects the mother’s milk, and disrupt the baby’s intestines. Once, I called to see a baby on the breast with diarrhea. The corrective measures had little effect only until the child was allowed to breast milk, but this being discontinued, and the arrowroot made with water only allowed the complaint was quickly put an end to. Believing that the mother’s milk was affected by an accidental cause, which now could happen, the baby was allowed to reshape the breast. In less than four and twenty hours, however, diarrhea returned. The mother is a very healthy woman, it was suspected that some items unhealthy diet may be the cause. The regimen was accordingly carefully researched, when it seemed that a tavern keeper neighbor had been replaced by his own for some little time. This proved to be bad, throwing down, when allowed to stand several hours, a significant sediment, which was suspended, had good sound ale, the new baby as the breast, on the milk from which it flourished, and never had another attack .
Similarly laxative medicine, taken by the mother, will act in the intestines of the child, through the effect upon her milk. This, however, is not the case with all types of drugs purging, or the same purgative produce a similar effect to all children. So, therefore, for a parent to realize what works and laxative through its system over that of your child and what not, and when a laxative is necessary by itself, unless the desire to the intestines of the baby moved to avoid the latter, otherwise, you can take the old one, with good results.
Again, the return of monthly periods whilst the mother is a nurse always affects the properties of milk, more or less upset the stomach and intestines of the baby. Therefore, it often happens, a few days before the mother is unwell, the child becomes irritable and restless, and his stomach vomit milk, and their movements are frequent, watery and greenish. And then, when the period is full, the milk will drain. It is mainly in the first few months, however, that the child seems to be affected by this circumstance, because usually it was found that although milk is definitely affected by it, being less abundant and nutritious, still, after the third or fourth month longer affect the baby. It is then a mother, because her monthly periods return after delivery, to give up nursing? Of course not, unless the child’s health is seriously affected by it, because it is generally found that, as the periods come round, to keep the child more or less of the breast, during its continuance, and feeding to artificial food will prevent disorder of the child’s health, and power in the intervals to nurse your baby a head start. It should be added, however, that a wet nurse is to rely on more than any risk to harm the health of the child, and that in all cases, the partial feeding will be necessary at a much earlier period than when a mother is not affected.
Milk can also be made less nutritious, and diminished in quantity, the mother is again pregnant. In this case, however, mainly parents’ health will suffer, if you persevere in nursing, which, however, will act to the detriment of children. It will be wise, therefore, if pregnancy occurs, and the milk does not agree with the newborn, to relinquish the duties of a nurse, and put the child in a suitable artificial diet.
The baby who is constantly on the breast will always be suffering, claw, more or less, from flatulence, the looseness of the bowels, and vomiting. This is caused by a sufficient interval between meals unable to digest. Milk, therefore, passes from the stomach into the intestine undigested, and the effects just alluded to follow. Time must not only be for the proper digestion of milk, but the stomach should be allowed to own a season of rest. This evil, then, avoid the greatest care by the mother strictly adhering to standards for nursing.
The baby’s intestines in the chest, and after weaning, are generally affected by teething. And it is fortunate that this is the case, as it prevents more serious conditions. In fact, diarrhea that occurs during dentition, unless violent, should not be subject, however, if this is the case, pay attention to it. Generally, you’ll be accompanied by a swollen gum, freedom of puncture which sometimes just stop looseness: further medical aid may, however, be necessary.
In the weaning period.
There is great susceptibility to disorders of the stomach and intestines of children in the period when weaning takes place normally, so much care and judgment must be exercised in effecting this object. Usually, however, the intestines are disturbed during this process of one of these causes, from the early weaning, to effect too quickly and abruptly, or an excess of food and food use inaccurate and inadequate. There are other causes which may also lead to diarrhea at this time, regardless of weaning, viz. irritation of difficult teething.
The substitution of artificial food to breast milk of the mother, at a time when the baby’s digestive organs are too delicate for this change, is a frequent source of the affections now under consideration.
The attempt to wean a delicate child, for example, when only six months old will inevitably be followed by disorder of the stomach and intestines. Unless, therefore, a mother is forced to resort to this measure, to become pregnant, or any other unavoidable cause, if you query the welfare of her son, she will not give up nursing the first period.
Depriving the child at once of the breast, and the substitution of artificial food, however, by appropriate regulatory pathway for these foods may be intended to cause bowel complaints. Some rules and regulations must be adopted to effect weaning safely, the details are given elsewhere.
If an excessive amount of food given at each meal, or meals too often repeated, in both cases the stomach will become oppressed, tired and upset, some food, perhaps, thrown by vomiting, while the rest, not having undergone the digestive process, will in the bowels, irritate the delicate lining membrane, and produce flatulence, colicky, debugging, and perhaps convulsions.
Then again, improper and unsuitable food will be followed by precisely the same effects, and less than a prudent alteration done quickly, the resources not only have no influence on the disease, but continued to be the cause, the disease will become more seriously aggravated.
It is therefore of utmost importance for the good work of the child, which in this period, when the mother is about to substitute an artificial food for their own ranks, first determine what kind of food best suits of the children and then the exact amount required by the nature. Many cases could be cited, where children have never had a prescription written for them, simply because these issues have been addressed, your diet has been handled with discretion and care, while on the other hand, others may be mentioned, whose life has been risky and almost lost, simply from the dietary management unwise. The excess supply, and improper food items are often more productive in their outcome anxious hours and distressing scenes for parents, and danger and loss of life the child, than almost any other cause.
The irritation caused by difficult teething may give rise to diarrhea in the period when the child is weaned, regardless of weaning. Such disorder of the bowels, if manifestly occur from this cause, is a favorable circumstance, and should not be interfered with, unless the attack be severe and aggravated, when medical aid becomes necessary. mild diarrhea then, during weaning, when it is fairly traceable to the cutting of a tooth (the heated state and inflammation of the gum at the same time point to this as the origin of the disorder), has no significance, but should not confused with disorders from other causes. Puncture the rubber at a time, then remove the cause, and usually heals bowel complaint.
