Feeding:Foods to give during diarrhea - 9 month old
2007-09-05
Name: Priya
Hi, My daughter is having diarrhea from last 3 days. Doctor has asked to stop formula milk and just pedialyte, mashed bananas and rice cereal. My daughter is not very fond of either of them. What else can I give her to cure diarrhea fast and also provide her nutrients? Please help me.

\" The central concern with diarrhea is the possibility of dehydration from loss of body fluids. Treatment is aimed at preventing dehydration, the real culprit. Most children with diarrhea can be treated safely at home.

If your baby is breast-fed, don' t stop. Breast feeding helps prevent diarrhea (making diarrhea only half as likely) it also speeds recovery (Journal of Pediatrics, May 1996). If your baby still seems thirsty after or between nursing sessions, you can supplement with an oral rehydration solution (Pedialyte is the most well known, but other brands are also effective. Children in my practice seem to prefer the taste of grape-flavored KaoLectrolyte -- chilled).

If your baby is formula-fed, you might want to switch to a soy-based formula while the diarrhea lasts. A soy formula containing fiber (Isomil DF) can be even more effective at slowing down the stools (Clinical Pediatrics, March 1997). Do not dilute the formula. As with breast-fed babies, supplementation with an oral rehydration solution can help replenish the fluids and electrolytes that have been lost in the diarrheal stools.

If your baby is already big enough to be taking solid foods, then carrots, rice cereal, bananas, potatoes, and applesauce can help slow down the stools. Avoid fruit juices, peas, pears, peaches, plums, prunes and apricots until the stools are back to normal, which should be within a week or so.\"

Hi priya,

I would also get a second opinion. Because when my then 6 mth old daughter had diarrhea, her pediatrician asked me to keep giving her formula (to keep her hydrated) and give her mashed bananas and applesauce. No fruit juices.

You can also mix the applesauce in the rice cereal ad try giving that. Hope this helps.
