What is Kindspech?

No, Kindspech is not a child being persecuted by misfortune. Rather, it is the first intestinal contents of the newborn still formed in the womb. The child's speck, also called meconium, is normally eliminated by the child within the first 12 to 48 hours after birth. It is - hence the name - of tough consistency and greenish black color.

Kindspech: not a real chair yet

The Kindspech is basically not the right chair. Rather, the odorless mass consists of mucus, intestinal cells, thickened bile and hair and skin cells that have been absorbed through the amniotic fluid. The intestine does not become active until the child has eaten the first food, usually breast milk. Kindspech is not to be confused with intestinal aspen. Darmpech is called the first chair of newborn animals.

Meconium aspiration: Kindspech in lung

Under certain circumstances, the meconium can be excreted even before birth and so get into the amniotic fluid. This creates the risk for the baby that the child's Spech swallowed or inhaled. So the child could reach the lungs (meconium aspiration). This can lead to breathing problems. Especially in the case of very long births and transferred children, excretion of meconium into the amniotic fluid occasionally occurs. In most cases, however, this works well.

Kindspech stays out

Worrying is it, if the child Spech was still not excreted two days after birth. In this case, there may be a constriction, a closure or a transport disorder of the intestine in the intestinal area. The sooner the child is excreted after birth, the better. By the early bowel movement, namely, the risk of the newborn is reduced to jaundice to jaundice. Breastfeeding can often speed up the excretion of the meconium.
