Hello Maam. I have a query about my daughter
She is just one year old. She has loose motions for the past few days.
Normally she would eat everything like instant food, rice water, properly boiled rice and breast milk...
but in the past few days she has loose motions which has lately become continuous... We are trying to give Coslyte water and milk.
other than than she is not able to have anything... dunno what to be given next
we just tried bitten rice flakes... she vomited
Does she have fever?
Does stool smells bad?
Ok. I see
She may need treatment with antibiotics.
but her stools usually smell when there was no loose motions... the normal bad smell...
Routine stool examination will demonstrate infection if any.
You can get this test done under your pediatrician's guidance.
meanwhile what food can she have... Can we give her pomegranate juice or anything of that sort
This is easily available in pharmacy.
Is Coslyte an alternative to ORS?
Yeah. You can continue Coslyte.
Anything specific in the liquid food you would suggest?
You can give her coconut water, rice water, fruit juices of her choice and of course breast milk.
and can we continue with Lactogen since we are wondering it may worsen her motions? Although she accepts it..
You can try to stop it for some time, look for any improvement. Also try to to avoid milk and milk products (Other than breast milk).
Well one thing...
She traveled out of station a week back, and we also introduced junior horlicks - stage 1 and Cerelac 4 during this period. We observed that her loose motions started after that...
Please go ahead.
although we stopped both the food after 2 days... but the motions are still on...
There is a possibility that she might have contracted infection during your travel period.
Additionally, any new food takes some time to get adjusted.
It is good you stopped it right now.
Introduce new food gradually, one by one once she recovers of it.
I feel, this is right time for you to consult her pediatrician.
to make sure infection is the reason.
Is there anything else i can help you with?
Thanks a lot for the suggestions
