Extremely Loose Stool

1 mo.

Dear Cille

I do not think that your daughter's loose stools have nothing to do with the intake of camomile tea, should you give her less than 20 ml. Ohterwise, you should see to it to cut back on the camomile tea offering her the nourishing milk instead, as I know that she does not gain enough weight ...

Alternatively, you could offer her a little pure boiled water, and add some sugar, if needed. Mix 1 teaspoonful of sugar in 100 ml of water and do not give your daughter more than 20 ml, peferably only a couple of teaspoonfuls.

Whether your daughter reacts on the intake of vitamin D drops depends on the time of the day you give her the D drops, i.e. should she have the vitamin D drops during the day, she would not have an reaction in the evening/night.

You should also pay attention to your own food intake that might affect your daughter via the breastfeeding, i.e. spicy food, cabbage, raw onions, spinach, coffee or wine, too much chocolate etc. may cause loose stools for the baby.

I hope this is helpful:o)

Kind regards,
