Hi, my son is 7 months now. Past 1 week he is passing frequent stools around 6 to 7 times a day, which is not liquid but also not formed, color varies from dark green to mustard, earlier it was 1 to 2 at the max. He is taking dexolac, ragi porridge, rice cereal, little fruit juices, n nextum rice. Gave enterogermina for 3 days but still no improvement, not gaining weight too. Please also suggest high calorie food for weight gain. He weighs around 6.5 kg. Please advise.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do not worry regarding the color of the stool. Green color only indicates increased bowel motility.

Some times viral diarrhea may take a little long to subside.

Maintain hydration of your baby with ORS.

Addition of sugar, milk, ghee or oil will make it high calorie

Hope this helps.
Take care.
