Thanks for the query
Your baby's stool report suggests intestinal infection. She needs a course of antibiotic. Give her O2/ Ofal-M 5 ml twice a day for five days, Enterogermina respule 1 such daily for 3 days, Syr. Zinconia 5 ml once a day for 15 days. Your food selection is appropriate. Weight shoud be recorded once a fortnight or month. Whether your baby's oral acceptance deteriorated in past few days, if answer is no then no need to worry. Continue with the feeding, maintain hydration by giving adequate fluid and watch if there is high grade temp. persistence of blood in stool, decreased urinary frequency or oral intake.
If you notice any of these consult your doc immediately for prompt evaluation of condition and management accordingly.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
With regards

Dear Ms Samajpati

Going by the reports of the stool --- it does appear that your baby is suffering from an infection of the intestine i.e., gastroenteritis. I would like to know if you are also bottlefeeding your baby as that is the most common cause of an infection at this age. Kindly clarify
