My 3-month-old baby is having loose stools for the last 15 days. For the last 7 or 8 days, the color of poop turned from yellow with mucus to greenish-yellow with bad smell. I consulted with a pediatrician, and he gave antibiotic injection and drops to him. But, I could not see any improvement.
Homeopathic drops reduce poop frequency, but as I stop giving the medicine, it all started again.
I am clueless and under lockdown. So, I am not able to visit a good doctor.

Thanks for your query.
You did not mention how many times in a day he passes stool and the name of the antibiotic.
Does your baby breastfeed? And, please do not give him homeo or other kinds of medication.
Give him syrup Erythromycin one-third teaspoon four times daily for seven days. Please, add oral rehydration solution five teaspoonfuls after each purging. Please do continue breastfeeding.
There is a rule for making ORS. Please follow the rules for making ORS. Make the whole packet at a time and you will be able to use it up to 6 hours. After this period, please discard the residual.
You keep an eye on whether your baby's urine output is adequate or not. If possible, do a test for your baby. The name of the test is stool R/M/E (routine microscopic examination) and C/S (stool culture and sensitivity test). Kindly consult in the future if needed.
