Feeding:Stomach Infection
2006-03-30
Name: Minka Hi ,

My baby is 10 months old and teething. he's had a stomach infection last week - had diarrhoea for 2-3 days. Doc prescribed antibiotic oflomac and darolac and rebalanz electrolyte. My son wouldn't take darolac and rebalanz - but we forced him to take the antibiotic with sugar solution . My queries are :-

1) Does anyone know if oflomac or any antibiotic cause sleepiness ? My son is unusually sleepy and groggy - he tries to play and crawl - but he's unusually unsteady - I have to force him to stop crwaling and lie down - then he sleeps for hours as if very tired.

2) He has a diaper rash - redness around anus with some white scales in the edges. I am using siloderm and make sure we rinse his bottom with warm water after every bowel movement. Any other ointments or ideas to heal rash faster ? I stopped using pampers till rash clears.

3) My MIL feels his infection was due to cerelac. But stool test showed bateria . So my question is if my son was allergic to cerelac - we've been giving him 75 ml in the night - wouldn't he have shown signs earlier - it's almost a month now since we started cerelac. I think this is due to dirty hands or dust or something he might have swallowed.

thanks
Minka

Darolac and rebalanz are more important than the anti-biotic. Darolac is a probiotic that restores the natural flaura and fauna of the digestive system. It is neccesary when you give anti-biotics to a child or adult as anti-biotics kill both bad and good bacteria. Infact darolac on its own is the best treatment for any stomach problems. If good bacteria increases it in turn reduces bad bacteria in the gut.
Diahorrea makes you chiled weak and lose electrolyts. rebalanz is for the exact purpose of restoring electrolytes in the body. Infact right now go and give you child rebalanz in any possible way.
Anti-biotics are not good for children.
And one more thing a child does not \" get\" diahorrea. Something causes it, like bad food hygeine and/or chemicals in foods like baby foods that cause imbalance in the digestive tract. So always take precaution to avoid it.

Hii,
My son had the same symptons which u have mentioned when he was of that age.Antibiotics do make them weak.and the same diaper rash he got.Doctor gave some cream whcih got reduced.try to apply some good cream everytime u use a diaper.And reg cerelac even i was under the same assumption that its was due to cerelac.cos he got infection when i used some new flavour.but i dont think its coz of cerelac.as u said only due to dust.they crawl all over house n might have put something in mouth.but see if u r using cerelac wheat.some babies may have wheat allergy....till 1 year many suggest not to us eif symptons persist.try using cerelac rice and see.
dont worry.he will be allright.take care.

Hi


My daughter is also in teething process and dr says there is stomach infection but her sympton is black stools. I also had doubt about cerelac and stopped it. In spite of homemade food and boiled water donno whats the reason. Maybe at this stage its common.

Bye
