My 10 months child has diahrea,she feeding formula Lactogen 2 ,I dont know whether I hav to change the formula or what I must do,,please help?

However, if you have ALWAYS fed the Lactogen, and the diarrhea has only recently started, look for another cause. Offering an electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte after each loose stool can help prevent dehydration. Bloody diarrhea is always cause for concern, needing doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, i have a child of 6 months age, his stool color is green blackish, heart beat is fast, so is it bad for him, he is feeding formula, so pls help me?
Poop Colors: The color of stool is not usually concerning, as it reflects a lot of things we eat. Dark black, red or white stools are the only colors that are worrisome.

The more you nurse : Your son. The more breast milk you produce. You can also use an electric pump at intervals to increase your milk supply.
