Question: My baby is 4.5 months old and suffering from loose motions from last 10 days..
Answer: Hello Dear, you can try following home remedies that will help your baby with loose motions :
BreastMilk helps recover from diarrhea
If you are breastfeeding your baby then you should continue feeding your child. Breastmilk is the best solution to keep baby hydrated if he is below 6 months of age. During loose motions, you can increase the frequency of feeding.
If your baby is exclusively on breastfeeding then you have to cut down foods like greasy foods, spicy foods, dairy products which can trigger diarrhea in your child.
Give your baby plenty of fluids. Babies tend to dehydrate faster than adults. Give your baby ORS (Oral Rehydration Salts). ORS is a special combination of dry salts that is mixed with safe water. Oral Rehydration Salts can help replace the fluids lost due to diarrhoea. You can buy ORS sachets from the market or make ORS at home.
Walnut (Akhrot) to cure diarrhoea :
This is another home remedy used by many parents. For this, you have to grind the walnut kernels with water to make a paste. Now apply this paste to the navel of your little one to cure Diarrhoea.
Avoid milk products :
Avoid milk powder or anything which is prepared with milk. NO cow’s milk or buffalo milk for the baby during this time, until baby is not recovered from diarrhoea. Only give breastfeed in milk. If you are giving artificial feeds, be careful while sterilization, handling and preparation of formula.
Look for the cause of loose motions, teething is the most common cause of the infant diarrhoea.
If your baby is not responding to home remedies or if there are other symptoms along with loose motions then take your baby to paediatric for treatment. Take care.
