Q.

loss of appetite

Hi. My baby is 14 months. For the past week he has stopped eating. He is however drinking his milk(about 5 times a day). The problem is that he is passing stool over 5 times a day. Is this something i should be worried about? He has got most of his teeth so i am not sure if it is teething related.Thanks

This is not due to teething but your son seems to have a gastro infection. It will help him to offer him frequent sips of Rehidrat solution to replace fluid and body salts he may be losing with his frequent stools.
