Answer: Hi, Infant bowel habits and characteristics change quite abruptly during the first few months of life. a baby may have diapers frequently consisting of soft, liquid or solid stools. A breastfed baby will pass watery or seedy stools that have minimal shape. These are not signs of diarrhea. Infant diarrhea is described as bowel movements that are more frequent, greater in volume, watery and foul-smelling. Baby diarrhea can be due to illness or diet. A breast-fed baby can have diarrhea in response to the mother's diet. Her intake of dairy, spicy foods and even caffeine can upset a baby's sensitive tummy and cause diarrhea A mother on antibiotics can pass the medicine to her baby during breastfeeding, which may result in infant diarrhea Various bacteria, viruses and parasites can cause diarrhea in an infant. This can be contracted by touching an item contaminated with the organism and putting the hands or the object into the mouth. Such infections are often passed from caregivers and others who handle the baby. As for remedy keep breastfeeding your baby.The anti infective factor of breastmilk will help your baby recover fast. Also regulate your diet. Drink lots of water so that baby doesnt get dehydrated. Hope this helps.
