Q.

Teething &  runny tummy

Good morning,
I have a 6month old baby, she''s teething, and her tummy is running, Im giving her glucose as prescribed by the clinic sister and smecta to stop the running. I m not giving her any milk, but during the night she''s cries alot because of hunger. Can I give he Lactose free milk, or will it aggrevate the running. The running stop since 5 o''clock this morning... Please advise. thank you in anticipation

It is a good idea to give your baby a lactose free formula for 24 hours. After that she can go back onto her regular formula.

Teething doesn''t cause baby to have a runny tummy, she has got a tummy bug.
