Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Which feeds your baby is recieving? top feeds or exclusive breastfeeds?
Your child seems to have acute gastroenteritis mostly due to a bacteria.
I advise you to give exclusive breast feeds till the age of 6 months.
Give sips of oral rehydration solutions to maintain hydration.
Consult your Pediatrcian for the medication.
Hope I have answered your query.
