Pediatrician 's  Response
First i want to confirm that what she has started in weaning. Teething doesn't cause loose motion but children usually rub their gums with their hand and toys which are the source of infection. Nappy rash in this case is because of acidic stool, for which we prescribe Zinc supplement for about 15 days and local cream (Steroids and antibiotics). Initially in weaning soft food should be given, ideally boiled rice, banana and yougurt.
