My 4 month old has seedy yellow poop and is puking what's wrong?

Poop is fine/?vomit: Yellow seedy poop would be declared "normal" baby poop/stool. No need to fret. Vomiting can still be a normal infant phenomena due to mild reflux. Check with your doctor to ensure the weight/growth is progressing in a normal fashion. Overfeeding with too large of a volume at one time may be the issue. Smaller amounts over a shorter period of time may help. Upright positioning after meals.

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.

Advice? I am having loose stools/ diarrhea everyday?

Diarrhea: Hi, loose stools everyday, depending upon the duration and frequency and the time of the day or night, can have various causes. If theres is blood, mucus, fevers, wt loss or pain while defecating then you need to see your pcp/gi. Keeping a food chart to see a temporal co-relation to certain foods will help (esp with lactose intolerance). Blood work ; stools studies will help for clarification.

Don't ignore it: This is well worth seeing your provider who may do a stool for fat, culture or other new stool test. If fats and carbohydrates are not being absorbed, they may allow this change to occur. It is easily treatable but only after appropriate testing.
