Hi Welcome to Healthcare Magic....
Please madam , start breatfeeds and continue till 1-2 years of age.
Yeah few pediatricians suggest stopping breastfeeds , when child has loose stools , as the lactose content in the milk is known to have an osmotic effect and increases frequency of loose stools . secondly child with loose motions also has lactose intolerence which further adds up to loosemotions. So few recommend stopping breastfeeds during the episode of loose stools , but you can continue breast feeds once it stops .So Please continue breastfeeds ...The greatest and valuable gift a mother can give her baby is breast milk... Hope i was informative...
