It looks like your kid is having Gastroenteritis
, infection of the stomach and intestines.
is a probiotic
that reduces the frequency and duration of diarrhea, but it will not stop the loose stools as soon as you give. Give it in recommended doses of 2 times or 3 times a day. By increasing the dosage, it will not cause any good.
Modify his diet.
Stop cow`s milk for a few days
Give him lot of curd, rice based porridge, vegetable soups, mashed potato, banana, soya milk.
You may also give porridge made of sago grain.
Avoid fruit juices as they might increase the frequency of loose stools.
Just be sure that he does not get dehydrated. He must pass urine at least 4 to 5 times a day. Give him adequate fluids like plain water, ORS and above mentioned food items.
If he is very dull, tired, his urine frequency is less, take him to your Pediatrician
as they suggest dehydration
It usually takes 4 to 5 days for loose stools to stop in viral diarrhea.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish a speedy recovery for your kid.
