Hi Sheetal,thanks for query.Yes it is true that your medicines can affect baby.The good part is that he is gaining weight.Watch for his activity and urine frequency.If both are normal you need to worry.In any case a breast feed child can pass stool every time he takes feed.This is normal not a disease.My advise would be before giving any medicine please go for stool test and give antibiotics only if there is infection.Do not give unnecessary medicines .bye.
Welcome to Health Care Magic. Your baby passing sticky stool should not be a problem, as long as the stool is not watery or mixed with blood and the baby does not have fever and is gaining weight properly.
As for the baby fondling the nipple is normal and is supposed to act as a stimulus to produce more milk for the baby.
As for the medication that you are having for the liver disease, if it is only vitamins, it is OK, otherwise consult your Doctor and ascertain from the doctor, whether breastfeeding is safe, while taking those drugs. Wishing you a very affectionate mother child relationship.
Cold n congestion if mild can be ignored. Breast feeding could take care of it, breast milk transmits all the immunity you have developed over a period of time to your child, giving your child all that is necessary to fight minor ailments. If the baby has difficulty in breathing, you should immediately consult a pediatrician. As for making noise while taking medicine need not be taken seriously, provided baby has no such problem while breast feeding.

Hi I am a mother of a 4.5 year old boy. My son has a problem with stool witholding for about four months now. He solis his pants with some stool from the 3 rd day from the last bm. He goes about every 8 days, or sometimes 6 or 7. He sits on the potty couple times a day it seems he will produce a stool, it smells, but the he witholds and the stool doesn t come out. I think he is afraid that it will hard him when he goes. He got constipated around august, hte stool was after 8 days, very hard and some blood on it. He had an infection of the throat then and didn t want to eat anything, so I gave him some chocolate desert he likes and some other things that made him constipated, because I was afraid he didn t want to eat and loose wait, not be able to fitght the infection. Since then he has been witholding the stool. I went to the peditrician, she said to take decoman and that didn t work so we tried lactulose, after that was no improvement in frequency and he had cramps and his behavior was different. He was irritated a lot. I look him of lactulose and I don t know what to do next. He had an ultrasound, but it didn t show anything specific. The doctor who preformed the ultrasound said that there is some fecal matter in the stool. Now doctor is saying he needs an x-ray with contrast or somethin. I would be thankfull for any advice. I don t know how to help my son, so he can go more often and the stools are not as hard. I give him prunes, otmeal, fresh apples and pears.. he doesn t eat nay chocolate or bannanas-nothing that will make him constipated more. Thank You for any advice.
