Persistent Diarrhea: Your breast-fed 5 month old has a history of diarrhea and taking antibiotics. She continues to have abnormal stools. Your baby should continue breast-feeding and close observation by your doctor is important. The initial illness combined with antibiotics can prolong your baby's recovery. Monitoring for a chronic condition or additional diagnoses will be required until the stools normalize.
