Thanks for posting your query at HealthCareMagic. I am sorry that your baby is not doing well. Going by her age, I would have to assume that weaning has already been done, i.e. her diet now contains semi solid mashed foods. If not, you need to do so. Neopeptine
is safe to be given to her. But let me mention that it is not likely to be much effective.
A stool softener
, also known as a laxative, may be given to clear the bowels. These are safe in children, but should be used under the supervision of your pediatrician
. Please do not use purgatives. A high-fiber diet with plenty of fluids needs to be given. This means loading your child’s plate with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, high-fiber cereals, whole grain breads (look for at least 3-5 grams of fiber per serving), and a variety of beans and other legumes, like chickpeas and lentils.
You would also need your doctor to look into any underlying cause that may be there. An underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism
), some neurological conditions or some rare diseases with abnormal development of the bowel, such as Hirschsprung's disease, may be present.
I hope that helps. Feel free to revert back in case of further queries.
