Answer: If your baby has loose motion, one of the most common reason could be teething in babies. Wash all the toys, tether etc. in a mild soap solution or dip into a disinfectant. Wash the toys in running water and then you can give to your child. Also, check whether for the baby’s playing area. Do not allow shoes where the child crawls and plays. Disinfect the floor and make it safe for the baby to play. You can go for making rehydration solution at home like rice kunjee which turns out to be an excellent baby loose motion home remedy. Cook a half a cup of rice powder with enough water for ten minutes. Add a teaspoon of salt and some more water to make it up to 1 liter. Give your baby some spoonful of this liquid to fill up any lost salts or fluids. You can also make a solution with half a small spoon of salt and six level small spoons of sugar dissolved in one liter of safe water(boiled & cooled). This is the method which has been used since ages and is very helpful in treating loose motions. This(ORS) is the best loose motion medicine and is even recommended by the World Health Organization. You do not have to force-feed the baby. A diarrhoea-stricken person needs more liquids than solids. Hence, allow your child to have feeds with his own desire. Remember that your child needs to eat or drink anything slowly. He should not gulp the food. Babies who eat solids should continue with their normal foods. In fact, doctors now recommend starchier foods like oatmeal, whole-wheat bread, and crackers so as to help restore all the lost sodium. Foods that are rich in soluble fiber like oats, carrots and bananas good during this time. Breastfed babies should be given breast milk only as it has anti-infective factors and all the necessary nutrients that will help your baby fight against bacterial or viral diarrhoea. And, also breastmilk will help ease the symptoms of the disease. Do not try any other remedies for your newborn baby or if your baby is below 6 months of age. You must give light-foods to your babies during this time as they cannot absorb much of the stuff and light foods could be absorbed easily. Dal ka paani (Dal water) Dahi or curd – Easy natural treatment Khichdi (cook with more water to make it soft) Bananas (Works great) Coconut water – helps in re-hydration too. Probiotics that are found in curd/yogurt can help restore the healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. Fresh curd is the best gut friendly food during the phase. If your doctor prescribes medicines, do ask for its side effects, if any. And, if the doctor has given you some anti-vomiting drugs, make sure that you do not feed your baby right after giving them, wait for at least one hour and then you can feed your baby. when the baby is suffering from loose motions but even after following all these remedies, it’s important to give your baby sufficient sleep and rest.
