Thanks for the query
If your child is not suffering from any fever
, if stool is not mucoid or mixed with blood there is no need of antibiotics. You are giving ORS
its good. Give 5 ml of zinc syrup daily for 14 days it will help in early recovery of diarrhea
. It is normal for an infant to pass stool 5 to 6 times a day or once in 3 to 4 days. Diarrhea in infancy occurs usually due to viral infection and subsides within 7-10 days. What you need to look for is a gross change in consistency, whether any decreased feeding is there due to lethargy
, decreased urinary frequency , poor weight gain, having temperature, blood mixed stool or any other obvious symptoms are there. If there is nothing like this then you should not worry. If you notice any one of these then consult your doctor immediately.
So, I would suggest you to ensure adequate hydration of baby by frequent feed, continue ORS sips and be watchful for danger signs.
