what can be done for baby's indequate digestion problems

Ratna - posted on 10/12/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




Baby Om began having digestion problems since about 8-months of age as soon as he was off mother's milk. He loved solids but began having acid poo - acid poo can be handled with care, immediate cleaning etc...but what about his growth if he can't digest his food . he can eat well. He loves to eat but cannot digest- as he then frquently poos large quantities soon after eating...We are very worried about his growth...his weight is at the lower end of the average, naturally, so what else should be checked? He seems to be very intelligent understands languagues and is a happy baby otherwise.

They say he has an immature digestive tract...How long can we expect this problem to last and what should we do until his digestivetract can handle food normally ? Is frequent feeding in small quantities the answer? If any of you moms had similar problems, please share.
