Hi Jas, welcome to H.C.M.Forum. i appreciate that you are taking good care about your child. mothers milk is the utmost important food for good resistance, if she is already taking it ,the mother should follow some diet restrictions. should avoid spices, chillies, pulses, green leafy vegetables, when there are loose motions. if you have started veining food like cerelac give it a bit loose or stop giving for few days. if feeding out side milk give it some what diluted with 1/4 of water.give her purified water frequently. should not neglect thinking that it is due to teething, you should consult a doctor as well.thank you.
