Frequent Poops-Making me Worry
Created by Updated on Jun 14, 2013
My eleven month old daughter is passing poop 4-5 times in a day. Itis not watery but little less than semi-solid and yellowish in color. She does not have fever, and is eating well to, and not resisting to food like moong dal khichdi, daliya, seasonal fruits... she is on Nan Pro 2 as well as my feed. She also had 3 doses of enterogermina, but still there is no respite. Today, am finding her low on energy (until yday she was playful). I am unable to figure out the reason and getting worried now... today, I have also started her on ORS - it because of change of season? - or teething- she has got eight teeth so far and lately she has been biting a lot-which kind of got reduced in last 2-3 months... Please advise...

Hi! U can continue giving ur child moong dal rice khichri. The quantity of rice shd be little more. This will help control watery stools. U can also try curd at room temperature. Or give probiotic curd it's gud for health. The water intake should also be increased so that d child does not get dehydrated. Do not give dalia or iron rich diet it could further aggravate the problem. If possible avoid giving top feed milk for one or two days and increase ur own milk feed. it will help boost immunity. If its due to any kind of stomach infection it shd subside in about a weeks time which is quite normal during teething as child tends to put dirty hands in mouth due to itching in gums. If u still feel u can consult doc.
