welcome to HealthcareMagic
Diarrhoea in 8th month could be a teething diarrhoea.If your baby is feeding well;& playful ;also does not look dehydrated no need to worry .Continue the medicine of your doctor & give the baby enough water & if required with some electrolyte powder in it.If diarrhoea increases or the baby is not eating & drinking well consult with your doctor again.Take care.
