Pediatrician 's  Response
your baby is having dysentry and worm infestation.
There is nothing to panic as it is common and treatable with medicines.
you can give Syp. Normetrogyl to the baby. once the dysentry has subsided we can plan for worm infestation by giving Syp. Albendazole.
Continue breastfeeding normally for every one to two hours.
Thank you...
