Hi,My son is 17 month old.He is having loose motion from last three days (motion is watery and mostly maximum of 3 times in a day)and not ready to eat but taking breast feed milk without any problem and water in less quantity.When i consulted doctor asked me to give oflier suspension syrup but he vomits immediately after taking the same.ORS he is refusing to take.He is doing fine but not doing his regular activities.Looking bit week and unable to understand only the breast feed milk is enough to keep him dehydrated or not.

Brief Answer: Acute Gastroenteritis.continue breast feed, water Detailed Answer: Hi Dear Welcome to the XXXXXXX Your child is suffering with some stomach infection (acute gastroenteritis). He will continue passing loose stools till he is having infected material in his stomach. Poor appetite and nausea are also because of the same reason. His appetite will also improve gradually when the infection is washed off from the body. Nausea should also gradually decrease with infection. Frequency of loose motions are not so much, Hence there are less possibility of developing dehydration, We can continue giving breast feed and plain water in sips. So in my opinion not accepting ORS can be managed by encouraging the dal rice soup,coconut water,plain water,and some home made watery preparations. With in two to three days his stomach infection should wash off automatically with out giving antibiotics, and thus Hope child should improve . Please feel free for the further clarification. Thanks
