The baby's stomach is swollen or the stomach is dull — it may sometimes feel like that. Sometimes it seems that the baby's stomach is bloated all the time. Many parents are worried about this.
The baby's abdomen may swell for various reasons. This can happen if water collects in the baby's stomach. At the same time water accumulates in the baby's body. Water usually enters the baby's body due to kidney complications, such as nephrotic syndrome, acute nephritis, severe malnutrition, etc. The abdomen also swells like the hands and feet. Lack of meat makes the stomach water. With the right diagnosis and treatment at the right time, almost everyone becomes completely healthy.
If it seems that the shape of the abdomen is increasing day by day, then a doctor should be consulted. In many cases, if the liver or spleen inside the baby's stomach gets bigger due to various reasons, the stomach starts to swell.
However, the allegation that the baby's hollow stomach is usually made by the parents or guardians is not due to any serious disease. The walking posture of a one to three year old child is such that the abdomen protrudes forward. Apart from that, a lot of gas is produced in the baby's stomach. Specific foods, such as cow's milk, can interfere with digestion. This is what happens if a child has lactose intolerance. Apparently, if the child's eating, drinking, sports, and growing up are OK, there is no need to worry so much. If there is a problem with digestion of certain foods, it can be avoided.
About 90 percent of the children in our country are affected by earthworms and 50 percent by worms. The main symptoms of this worm infection are flatulence, indigestion and malnutrition. Even if children drink juice, drinks etc. frequently, their stomachs may swell.
However, it is also important to keep in mind that having a wheel in the abdomen can cause the baby's abdomen to swell. If it seems that the shape of the abdomen is increasing day by day, then a doctor should be consulted. In many cases, if the liver or spleen inside the baby's abdomen is enlarged due to various reasons, the abdomen becomes bloated. This is especially the case with thalassemia or leukemia. Therefore, if the abdomen feels more swollen than the child's body or limbs, a pediatrician should be consulted for proper diagnosis.
