Feeding:loose motion
2008-01-19
Name: worried
Hi,
my 11 month old is frequently having loose-motion for the last 2 months. it is the same time he cut his first tooth too. Earlier he had very regular bowels, once a day. nowadays, he passes motion after almost every meal. His weight is also very low, 7.1 Kgs at 11 months! otherwise, he is very playful and there seems no reason to worry about.
His diet is: Raagi kanji in breakfast, dal+roti+curd in lunch, cow-milk in afternoon (introduced cow-milk at 8 months, accepted well), soup/juice in eve, porridge or khichdi in dinner. and BM on demand and during nights. He is not sleeping through night yet. can you please suggest some home remedy for loose motion? and, also inputs on his diet?
Also, are apples good cure for constipation (sorbitol in apple juice) or they are good cure for loose motion? please help.

Arrowroot powder, just mix with water n boil till it is semi solid or to suit ur childs desired consistency. Very helpful.
Also he culd be passing loose stoold due to teething.
One thing i noticed with my daughter was that Raagi, too much of it , causes loose stools. when she was suffering from LM, as soon as i stopped LM , stools started to get firmer. donno the reason ..
take care :)

RE:bottle feeding problem
I have seen my brother in laws son having the same problem. Doctors said that it happens because of hyper acidity. The doctor had given some meds which helped him a lot. Take your daughter to a doctor for consultation.... - Ashna [View Message]
RE:Bottle Feeding for 7 month old
There is no problem if your baby is not feeding on bottle as there are many kids who start drinking milk directly from the glass and it is actually better as some kids get cavities because of drinking milk in the bottle.... - Sonakshi [View Message]
RE:traveling in train with six month old baby
See there is not problem if you breastfeed her for a lil longer. You can try semi solid food when you are not travelling or when you are back home. I don't think delaying a lil would make any difference.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Introducing Solid
See the amount of milk that you should give your baby will depend on how hungry your baby is and for the semi- solid food you can give him or her cerelac but not many babies eat it but you can try making your baby eat it.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Formula Feeding
Sometimes some things cause problems for some babies and not for other ones. So it would be better if you ask you gynac about it or your baby's pediatrician. They know what can be better if some particular thing is causing problems.... - NN [View Message]
