nice to meet you in healthcare magic
Increased fluids and dietary changes are the main treatment for diarrhea
. One loose stool
can mean nothing. Don't start dietary changes until your child has had several loose stools.
If your breast-fed baby has diarrhea, treatment is straightforward. Continue breast-feeding but at more frequent intervals. Don't stop breast-feeding your baby because your baby has diarrhea. For severe (watery and frequent) diarrhea, offer Pedialyte
or other electrolyte solutions between breast-feedings for 6 to 24 hours, but only if your baby is urinating less frequently than normal.
Remember that something in the mother's diet may cause a breast-fed baby to have more frequent or looser stools--for example, coffee, cola, or herbal teas. If you suspect this, take it out of your diet and see what happens.
