hi Sudha, you can speed up gut healing by giving probiotics like curd and food such as banana, rice . more importantly keep up with the fluids to prevent dehydration. Most diarrhoeas are viral and will take 3-4 days to settle. 2018-04-19 15:02:09

ok, usually that is how it would help in diarrhoea but if not comfortable, opt for apple/rice dal/rice curd type food 2018-04-19 15:04:11

Hi Vicas, yes babies are prone to diarrhoea when teething as they often introduce infection by constantly taking things in their mouth to ease the gum irritation during teething. Its is usually a mild infection. 2018-04-19 15:06:19

To bite on - washed carrot may be given. sometimes over the counter teething gels help or if very uncomfortable even paracetamol drops. 2018-04-19 15:08:35

It may take 4-5 days for loose motions to stop. Appetite may take longer to return. offer plenty of fluids, and diet that includes banana, apple, rice dal, yogurt etc. non spicy food. 2018-04-19 15:11:19

hi, is your baby breast or bottle fed? if bottle fed, take extra care with keeping the bottles clean. Feed frequently as the fluid requirement goes up at this time. 2018-04-19 15:14:36

My baby is not wetting as many diapers as earlier. He is 9 months now. He is peeing very less. Also vomits sometimes when we feed him. What to do?

Shipra Mathur
hi zara, he would be peeing less if his fluid intake is not sufficient. If the vomiting is frequent and large, that could be the reason. You may need to see a doctor if it carries on like this. 2018-04-19 15:22:50
message user image
Shipra Mathur
Continue to offer him frequent feeds and fluids. If any fever/ discomfort when passing urine - please get it tested for possible infection. 2018-04-19 15:24:04

okay doctor. Will take him to a doctor today itself. 2018-04-19 15:24:29

Hi Parul, A dark green/brown poop is not unusual . but a black colour may be due to iron supplements ..is he taking any ? 2018-04-19 15:27:05

No. 2018-04-19 15:27:30

He is not taking in fluids regularly... just wants to be breastfed. 2018-04-19 15:28:18

That can be a reason for the reduced urine ...offer him more water also to keep him well hydrated. 2018-04-19 15:28:58

does the black colour corelate with any new food that has taken? 2018-04-19 15:29:46

No mam. We haven't given any new food. 2018-04-19 15:30:05

You can increase his fluids and see if that helps. if not, you may need to get a simple stool check . 2018-04-19 15:30:36

hi vikram, he may be picking up viral infections...If the episodes are short lived, then not much of a worry. in any case, we would need to ensure a healthy nutritious diet for him to build his immunity 2018-04-19 15:41:33

yes. What should I give him in this case? 2018-04-19 15:42:00

ok, it seems to be a stomach infection with vomiting/fever and loose motions. If there has been blood in the motions also , then she would need to be examined to assess dehydration and medication accordingly. 2018-04-19 15:50:39
