Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As your baby is only one month 10 days old, very less medication is recommended in this age. Continue to breastfeed, watch for adequate urine output. ORS (oral rehydration solution) solution to be only given if urine output is low. You can also give Econorm (Saccharomyces Boulardi) sachet half sachet twice daily diluted in milk. For your information, a baby on breastfeeding may pass slight curdish stool which is golden yellow in color. It can be as frequently as the feed is being given. This is normal. It improves when the baby is four months of age.
