Doctor :   i mean usually during weaning , we advise to start on a new fruit or wheat cerelac or wheat apple , every week, So now do not experiment on anything new.

Doctor :   2. The only thing that I advise if the stool is very watery and the child doesnt urinate for 5 times a day is ORS therapy, you can feed 50 ml thrice a day , the way you feed Easum.
Doctor :   3. If the baby doesnt urinate for 8 hrs continuosly , then you have to see a pediatrician immediately.

Doctor :   So that is a good sign, not to worry, as she had only 3 motions and that too very small.
