Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
She is having temorary lactose intolerance.
This is not related to vaccination.
Give her a probiotic sachet twice daily for 5 days.
If she is on fomula feeds then change the milk to a lactose free formula.
Give her a carminative drop as well.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Hi Sowjanya

It is normal for babies to pass stool after each feed. So that is not abnormal.

Please let me know this. Is your baby breast fed or not. It is normal for breast fed babies to some times pass 6 to 8 stools per day. So if that is the case you need not worry for that.

If your baby is passing large watery stool and not breast fed this is not the case.

Monitor for signs of dehydration.
They include
1. Decreased skin turgor
2. Increasing thirst.
3. Sunken eyes.
4. Irritability.
5. Drowsiness.
6. Decreasing passage of urine.

Intravenous fluids may have to be started if dehydration is severe.
You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
