Our expert says:
Your child has diarrhea, unlikely caused by the nipple shield or anything that you eat. It is most probably due to a viral infection.
I do suggest that you take him to the hospital as soon as possible to have him assessed by a doctor to determine the exact reason for his diarrhea and to prevent dehydration. The biggest concern will be that your baby experiences dehydration due to the excessive fluid loss. It is therefore, of utmost importance to prevent this by giving adequate fluid replacement.
Best of luck.
