  1. Hello and thank you for posting.The common cause of diarrhea is viral infection of the lining of the intestines while sometimes may be caused by bacteria or parasites.Viral diarrhoea usually is self limiting.Give him enough water and fluids.Give him Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) 80- 100 ml after every loose motion to replace the fluid losses.Avoid fruit juices since they are too concentrated and make diarrhoea worse.Give khichdi,yoghurt,mashed banana .Yoghurt is a natural probiotic contains healthy lactobacilli which replace unhealthy bacteria in the gut.Continue breast feeding if you are giving.If baby does not pass urine in 12 hours,if there is frequent vomiting ,if frequency of stools increases,there is blood in stools or if child appears sick see a doctor and get your child examined.Hope it helped.Keep us posted.Take care and good day!
