Apart from it the stool frquency was increased form twice daily to 5-6 times. The stool is not green in colour. We have started sporolac today as per doctor s advice.

Thank you for your query,
As your child is having Gastroenteritis, continue exclusive breastfeeding frequently, give oral rehydrating solutions to prevent dehydration and continue sporlac as advised by your doctor.
Now you cant give curd or rice boiled water to a 3 months old child
Breastfeeding is best for your baby and now continue breastfeeding as it will contain adequate water and electrolytes for rehydration and have antiinfective properties to fight with infecting organisms.
I hope you got the answer .

Thanks for your query.
as you have mentioned your baby is having diarrhea and frequency is about 5 to 6 times,i advise you to continue with sporolac sachet for 3 to 4 days,i strongly recommend to give EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDING ,you need not to give any other fluid,breast milk contains sufficient water required by your baby,increase frequency of breast feeding.In case symptoms do not subside,she becomes lethargic.refuses to take feed or urine frequency decreases then take her to pediatrician for further evaluation.
Your daughter will be fine in couple of days/
God bless.
