Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response

in acute infective diarrhoea there is transient deficiency of certain enzymes required for digestion. dont get worried, cont. dioralyte / ors about 100ml for each purge of stool and you can offer barley, soyamilk and khhichdi / soft rice with green gram dhal/lentils.

intoduce food in small amount and gradually increase.
you can give curd rice also
