Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.
Is your baby breast fed or not? If you are breast feeding your baby continue to breast feed your baby.

A baby should be exclusively breast fed till 6 months of age. Breast feeding is important as this contains the right things required for the baby in right proportions at the right time. It is ideal for brain growth. Breast milk prevents various infections like loose motions, respiratory infections, etc.

So give exclusive breast feeding for your baby till 6 months and continue to breast feed your baby till 2 years of age.
Please continue the treatment as advised by your paediatrician. If symptoms persist then further investigations may be required.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
