lemon yellow colour stools
Created by Updated on Jan 30, 2017
hi my daughter is about to complete 8 months. she's taking solids too. from yesterday she's passing stools in light yellow colour (lemon yellow). yesterday she vomited twice. But she's active. no problem in her activities. she passed stools yesterday 3times. my paediatrician is out of station. he'll reach back tomorrow. so what should I do in the mean time?

hi Deva Pushpa! is she on breastfeed as well? please try and recall what solid feed did u give her after which she vomited ? was this the first time she had it? also note down the pattern of vomiting and motions , is it immediately after every feed? if vomiting and motions persists even after 24 hours, please consult your doc. meanwhile please avoid force feeding her, increase her fluid intake, avoid trying any new solid dish for few days and if need be give her ORS. hope this helps!

hi again! Deva Pushpa please avoid force feeding her . I know how u feel as a mother , when your child haven't had her meals. but as her digestive system is already under stress , feeding her without her will , would further add to her woes. it's OK at times , give her moong dal chawal khichri , slightly liquid in consistency with curd. if she is on breastfeed , increase her intake and reduce solid intake till she feels better. if vomit and watery motions frequency doesn't come down even after 24 hours or rather increases please consult your doc. hope this helps!
