Thank you for your query.

The loss of weight and the dark coloured urine are suggestive of dehydration. I suggest you get your son examined by a doctor and, if required, admit him for rehydration. While this is being done his urine can be examined.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.

Thanks for your query.
Your baby is having enteritis with moderate dehydration.
Since he is passing loose stools and is not taking orally as well i suggest you to take him to ER as he needs admission and intravenous fluid administration
In the meantime give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,give coconut water.

Wishing your baby good health,
God bless.
