I need to consult a paediatrician
is there a pediatrician online?
I am a General Physician, and will try to help you within my area of expertise.
my son is 5 month old
If it is out of knowledge, I will be able to guide you to a good Pediatrician in your area.
I have consulted a doctor and have been giving him - nutrilin B and Zinc syrup
he has been passing loose stools last few days but today his stool was bright green in color
both the times...
as it is sunday there are no good doctors around
I will need to know a little more details of the baby.
wanted to get some suggestion
And then I will guide you about what can be done.
Is the baby feeding well?
Is he playful and active?
yeah.. he is a completely mother fed baby -
Is he too tired?
he is active but fussy
we have been giving his ors solution every 2 hrs - a few spoons
How many times in a day is he passing stools?
Is there any blood in the stool?
but watery stools
no blood in the stools
it was only yellow stools only today it was bright green in color
Is he passing urine as regular and in normal amounts as usual?
urine in slightly reduced quantity
First, to have loose stools for babies are normal.
Only factor we have to be sure is that, he is fed well.
So that the hydration is maintained in adequate amount.
but the sudden discoloration of stools is worrying
will too much of ors water cause any harm?
Best food for the baby is Breast Milk.
thanks for the consultation.. will wait a couple of more days and observe him .. if diarrhoea persits will take him for a check up
But when he is having loose stools, you can give ORS for the extra requirement of fluid.
There are small things you can do until then.
Keep feeding him well.
ORS can be continued.
will continue ors
Monitor his urine output.
See if there is any decrease in activity.
You can wait for another 2-3 days.
ok thanks for your consultation
