Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned about the health of your child. Your child should not have been given any feeds except breast milk in first 6 months of life. Another thing is that Bottle feed should never be encouraged in a child. Both will lead to high incidence of gastrointestinal infections. From the present symptoms of your child, he is probably suffering from dysentry. It is better to get him examined by your pediatrician, as this condition probably requires antibiotics. Till then give him plenty of ORS, and breast milk orally. Do not worry, your child will be well soon. Thank you
