  1. Hello Dhara and welcome to Medimetry.I understand your concern and anxiety.During teething babies are prone for diarrhea because they pick up everything and anything and put it in mouth to ease the discomfort.In this way they pick up the bacteria and catch infection.Sterilise all things which they put in mouth.Regarding diet I advise you to give baby home made foods compared to commercially available products.Give dalrice well cooked mashed,boiled mashed vegetables and fruits.Give sufficient liquids and keep a watch on baby's urine output.Give baby ORS at least 60-70 ml after every loose motion.Continue with breastfeeding.Do not worry.If it persists or increases get baby examined to rule out any gastrointestinal infection.Hope this information helped you.Take care!
