Suggest treatment for diarrhea and cough

Hello. I have a baby girl of 59 days. She is on formula milk named Nan Lo Lac since last a week. It was started after she suffered from a diahorrea. Before that she was on cow milk. Since last a day she is been spitting up the milk out after every feed and also passing green solid stools. She is also having cough and I think because of cough she might be spitting out the milk. On asking for green stools my doc. said its becase of inadequate feed she is passing green stools. Is it true? Also how cani stop her spitting out as she feels hungry again and again after feed as she spits out most of the milk even after burping her.

Yes, inadequate feeds can result in green motions. To avoid the spitting of milk after feeding

-Sufficient burping /holding baby in a vertical position with her head resting on your shoulder- at least for 10-15 minutes, till she stops burp or yawn or hiccup.

-Keep the baby down with slightly raised head on thin pillow&on one side would allow escape of swallowed air out without spitting.

-Anti-genetic drops like Ondem 2 drops can be given before feed, after consulting her doctor.

-Her cough & diarrhea needs to be treated under her doctor's care.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
