Medicines to stop diarrhoea are not usually recommneded for babies. It is important to replace the fluid and body salts that your baby is losing due to the diarrhoea. Please give your bay frequest drinks of Rehidrat solution. Make up the mixture according to the instructions on the packet. Your baby will take as much of this fluid as he/she needs.If the diarrhoea continues for another 24 hours then please take your baby to be seen by a doctor or clinic nurse as babies with diarrhoea run the risk of becoming dehydrated.
