Doctor :   hi,
Doctor :   How can i help you ?
User :   Hi
Doctor :   Sure , Please proceed
User :   i have a question regarding my new born baby
Doctor :   ok,
User :   just 50 days over
Doctor :   ok,
User :   first month we gave dexolac special care powder milk
User :   After consulting with pediatrician we started giving Nan1
User :   but my baby suffered with loose motion, so consulted with pediatrician he said change it to isomil powder because he has to gain weight and we need to change powder as the first month powder will not gain weight
User :   but again he was facing with loose motion, again we consulted him he was confused because it usually suits for other baby but not in this case, so he suggested Dexolac 1
Doctor :   most of the milk substitutes are not harmful and rarely cause loose stools
Doctor :   I suspect it to be with the water and the utensils in which it is served to the baby
User :   Now again my baby is facing same problem keep going with loose motion
User :   not sure what can be done and how can we procede
Doctor :   if its recurring with other powders too then i strongly consider the above being the main cause
Doctor :   But this time with Dexolac he does have loose stools right ?
User :   if this is because of water, when we gave dexolac special care, he is fine
User :   if i change with dexolac special care which we usually give first, it suits for him
Doctor :   Oh, ok
User :   no, there are two version of dexolac
Doctor :   let me look into the contents of the mentioned milk substitutes
Doctor :   give me few minutes
User :   dexolac special care and dexolac one
User :   dexolac special care is advised to give only first month
User :   after one month we have to some how change the powder to gain weight
User :   ok
User :   note: none of the powder is accepting for his stomac except dexolac special care
Doctor :   Ok, I do consider that , but the dexolac special care has more ingredients than dexolac 1 and i see not contents of the Dexolac 1 that cause looses stools or ones not in dexolac special care
Doctor :   how many packets of dexolac 1 have you tried
Doctor :   I mean one box or more than one
Doctor :   as sometimes defects in packing and preservative amount can be expected in in different packings
User :   i tried different companies , companies are: dexolac1, isomil 1, Nan 1
Doctor :   ok I get it..But I see there is no extra contents in the later said foods
User :   not sure what is going on
Doctor :   compared to ones you have given in past
Doctor :   I would ask you to get babies stool culture
Doctor :   this may help us to rule out infective origin of loose stools
Doctor :   if the same is ruled out
Doctor :   then considering intolerance to such foods can be expected
Doctor :   which usually is presented in latter moths of age
User :   ok
Doctor :   Are you there ?
Doctor :   Is there anything I can help you with ?
User :   ok
Doctor :   You are welcome
Doctor :   Bye take care
