yes, u can give her sporolac powder before giving sporolac go for stool culture and routine examination to rule out the infection. if pus or bacteria come in stool report then we have to give antibiotic also with sporolac. u can also decrease milk intake substitute it with curd. khchirdi, banana. cerelac.
