Thank you for posing your question here. Any change in the frequency or colour of stool should be looked at with caution. Although this may not always portend a disease or an emergency, you should keep a watch on this. A few days of loose stooling may occur with teething
, a cold virus, or after the intake of a new protein in the diet. Anything more than a few days, or the presence of any of the following: high fever
, stomach pain, blood or sticky substance in the stool, refusal to take feeds, bloating of the stomach, excessive vomiting
, or a sick look of the child - should alert you to the possibility that this is not NORMAL and that you should take your child to the specialist urgently.
In the meantime, give her oral rehydration salts to tide the crisis and prevent dehydration
(loss of vital salts and water from the body), and continue to give her breastfeeds and soft diet
like rice, khichdi, bananas, curds, etc.
