My baby has had diarrhea for two days what can I do?

Hydrate: It will depend on the baby's age and overall health but hydration is the most important thing. If you have an infant less than 3 months of age, and oral intake is absent, you must see your pcp. Pedialyte type products or oral rehydration powder mixed appropriately or some "gator-ade" type rehydration may help. Must be "peeing". If not must be seen. Dark urine, no tears, no drool--see pcp. ...Read more

What will I do with my seven month old baby having constipated for two days?

What will I do with my seven month old baby having constipated for two days?

First, define: You need to explain what you mean by constipation. If baby is having hard, formed stools, that is really constipated. That will often respond to a change in formula, decreasing milk in mom's diet if breast fed. If you mean the baby grunts, pushes, cries, but passes soft or runny stools, or doesn't poop for several days, but still has soft or runny poop, that is not constipation. ...Read more

My seven month old has diarrhoea and vomiting. I am told its viral so I have to give fluids but how?

Orally: Even if you have to spoon or syringe feed your child you should if that's the only way they'll keep it down. If they won't keep anything down then you should have your child seen. He or she may not need IV fluids but sometimes a single dose of zofran (ondansetron) an anti-nausea medication is enough to control vomiting. You should be using an oral rehydration solution (ors), such as pedialyte. ...Read more

Im 30 weeks pregnant and have had the poops for a few days now and baby has hardly moved, i had back ache what should I do ?

Ultrasound: In the states we would would do tocometer/fetal heart rate monitor and probably an ultrasound scan to assess the baby. Lack of movement and diarrhea are very concerning. The back pain could be due to many things including urinary infection, pressure of the baby's head, etc. Please call your OB asap for full evaluation. ...Read more

Nausea : Nausea after surgery can be common. At his point, the most common cause would be the narcotic pain medicine. 4 days after surgery is often the peak of the pain (3-4 days). Maybe you can get the med changes or get an antinausea medicine. Definitely have to make sure that the nausea is not from swallowed blood from the open wounds. ...Read more

I had my last child six years ago i hamoregue after a week having him since then I have had no periods what does it mean im 38?

Get evaluated.: 38 is young for menopause, and the fact that you had a hemorrhage after your last baby leads me to ask some questions. Did you have a D&C to help end the hemorrhage? Once in a while, a woman will have scar tissue in the uterus after a d&c. Were you in a great deal of danger with your hemorrhage (in the ICU perhaps)? There is a pituitary abnormality that can occur after an OB crisis. See your doc! ...Read more

I had.Sex three days after my period and now im crampn so i wanted to no can I b pregnant I have a 4 .Month old bby?

Likely no: If you're saying you had sex 3 days after your period started, it's highly unlikely (though not impossible) that you got pregnant. If it happens in future, remember you can always take plan b. Or get a more permanent method of birth control if you don't want to be pregnant. Practice safe sex rest of month and if you miss period, take a test. But highly likely no. ...Read more

But if the bleeding doesnt stop and you arent pregnant, your doctor can give you some medicine to help stop the bleeding. If the bleeding slows, just wait and it should fix itself. ...Read more
