Teething won't cause loose motion its a myth, keep your hydrated,offer mashed banana thats a good binding agent and consult your dr at the earliest. Bf as much as possible.

Teething ke karan baby ko loose motion nahi hua.baby ko kisi food se ya har chiz mouth me lene se infection hota hai.aap doc se consult kriye.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi,,,
It may be stomach bug.. anti diarrheals will not help much.. try to feed baby- mashed banana, curd rice, moong dal khichdi etc.. try to maintain the fluid level.. offer baby Oral rehydration solution as much as possible..

Minaxi better to see the doc. Feed baby mashed banana, curd and overcooked rice and keep hydrated. You can give ORS, more water, soups and juices.
Hope baby feels better soon.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Minaxi,,, have you tried feeding binding foods?? since how many days she is suffering from loose bowels??

minaxi singh

Since 3 days...now i hav got stool repport there is traces of amoebiasis...so wht should i do now?Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; mam

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Minaxi,,, firstly it is very common type of stomach infection in babies and toddlers.. need not to worry.. your doctor will treat with the anti parasitic treatments like metronidazole syrups and it will help to kill the amoebas inside.. your work is to maintain the fluid level, make sure to feed atleast 20spoons of ORS water for one episode of loose stools.. the baby should not get dehydrated.. keep a check on pee count as well.. it will take around one week of time to get treated..

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Make sure to clean your hands with excess hand wash after changing baby's diaper and cloths.. because the infection may spread quickly.. make sure to dispose the napkins soon after changing it.. if you are using cloth diapers, then wash the napkins thoroughly with hot water and without any stains..
