HELP PLEASE !! My 5 months old daughter has diarrhea since past 11 days. Her weight has gone down by 500 gms initially but now we are giving her enough liquids and rice cerelac so it has become stable. She is passing about 8 to 10 poos in a day (after every feed). I am giving her probiotics too plus have shifted to Zerolac which is lactose free soy milk. She is eatinh enough though less than before. Its been 11 days now and her stools doesnt seem to stop. Please please help i am v stressed out.

She is probably teething. Same thing happened to me 2 months ago with my daughter. I talked to her doctor who told me to make sure she is hydrated and they ran test to make sure it wasn't an infection. Test came back, and she didn't have an infection, but because she was teething, she had it bad. Which like you, lasted for about 2 weeks, it stopped for a week, and started again for another week, and then stopped soon as her two teeth popped out. but remember BRAT, bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. Always give her bananas ALL DAY, to kind of harden it. Another thing that worked for me, her pediatrician told me to thicken up her milk bottle to a past with rice cereal. and that really worked too. GOOD LUCK
