Thanks for writing in.
Milk is best avoided when gastroenteritis
is suspected. It can worsen the symptoms.
Please try to follow the B.R.A.T diet as much as possible. Especially the rice. Wash the rice well , add it in a pressure cooker along with sufficient amount of water and pressure cook, till it has a watery porridge like consistency.Add salt according to taste. The watery rice porridge with salt
has all the ingredients required (water, sugar from the rice, salt) to combat dehydration
and will definitely help him recover. Give him small feeds. Initially even 1- 2 tsp is a good way to start and gradually increase according to his requirement.
I hope I have answered your question. Please do get back to me if you have further queries.
Have a great day :)
