Brief Answer:
Few yeast cells, otherwise normal report

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

This is a normal report. There are a few yeast cells, which are considered part of normal flora. Mother (if breastfeeding) and baby (if bottle-feeding) can have cleaner water to drink. Otherwise there is nothing to worry.

Let me know the baby's symptoms and diet in detail, so that I am better able to help.

Brief Answer:
Its probably viral

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Its probably viral gastroenteritis, maybe due to rota virus. But you have not mentioned about irritability or fever.

Another cause can be presence of chemicals in formula like omega 3, 6, 9 or others that can cause gastro-intestinal symptoms as side effect. As precaution you can give formula that has least of added chemicals.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Its probably sideeffect of rotavirus vaccine

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

If this diarhea began within few days of rotavirus vaccine, then its most probably a side effect of it. This will be a self limiting condition and will improve by itself. No extra precaution is required.

The baby is his usual, so there is nothing much to worry and its part of acquiring immunity to all these food-borne germs.

Hope it helps.
