Hi sheeba..
How much time she is passing loose stools in a day?? And did you check with your doctor?? What is the colour of poo?? Is it like water consistency??

Roopashree Siddireddy

Please consult your doctor. And also..keep feeding your milk. Baby shouldn't dehydrate.

She's having 4-5times a day, and the colour of poo is yellow n now its becoming totally loose like water... Its been more than a week from when She has left breastfeeding... M giving her formula feed every 3hour Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa Roopashree Siddireddy Rebecca Prakash Sonal Swapnil

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Its a stomach bug.. hope you are washing the bottle accessories well.. instead of feeding bottle, use cup and spoon to feed.. and it will take some time to get adjust to formula feed and also take time to get relieve from loose stools.. hope your doctor has started medicines and also make sure to feed ORS water as per the dose.. keep her hydrated well..

Sheeba Subin

Yea m washing the bottles property in routine... But she's having formula feed from the start bcz of getting less milk through breastfeeding so i dnt think she needs to adjust with it yet.. M gonna see her to the doctor today evening Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Keep us posted on how she is feeling Sheeba

Dr.Gaurav Nerkar

Right since I joined Babychakra I have been reading mostly one comment
"I think my milk is not enough so I have started on formula feed"
Whenever I read this comment I feel very sad..
I have been insisting on continuously that there is no phenomenon called Inadequate milk output until and unless you are suffering from major neurogical or any chronic life threatening disease.
So mothers please refrain from using any formula feeds .
If you are facing any issues with feeding we have got Lactation consultant but please don't give formula feeds to your baby.

Dr.Gaurav NerkarShe used do breastfeed for hours but even after that she didn't get satisfied, so there was no option left to give her formula feed too.. So after every 2hrs she was having breastfeeding n then formula feed too.. Its just from last week when she left breastfeeding and now m trying to feed her using bowl n spoon as Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa suggested.. Hope she'll leave the habbit of bottle n will start breastfeeding again.. But she has still not relieved from loose stools
