Hi doctor,

My 10 months old son gets loose motions very frequently from the last two months. He was also admitted one time. Again he is having loose motions. I am giving him Econorm sachet. Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Frequent diarrhea and infection do occur at this age, as babies put many things in their mouth, which leads to contamination and infection. Hence, you have to take utmost care regarding the hygiene.
  • Secondly, if there is any bottle feeding, please stop it gradually, as this also can cause recurrent diarrhea. Maybe, there is some food which is not suiting him, which needs to be identified.
  • For now, continue Econorm sachet (Saccharomyces Boulardii). Also, give Z & D drops (Zinc) 1 ml, every day for two weeks. A stool test may also help. So, consult with your pediatrician for further management.
