My 17 month old son is passing too many watery loose motions and not passing urine past 18 hrs, please suggest

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Losing too much water can cause dehydration. Child needs plenty of fluids in form of ors and other liquids commonly consumed. If he has actually not passed urine for 18 hours the condition is serious, and you need to take the child to emergency immediately.

I suppose he is not taking any corticosteroid which increase desire to eat and induce increase in wt. If it is not I would suggest to consult pediatrician to rule out any hormonal disturbance and for consoling.

Baby is 8 mnths, I've started working past couple of weeks. Baby was exclusively on breast feeding for 6 months, now started with formula milk n rice with vegs smashed. Passes morning stools normal but sometimes in the day when I'm away at work passes loose stools is greenish in color, is it normal? Kindly help because I've been pressurised at home to stop breast feeding him. I want to continue feeding till he is 2 yrs.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
I congratulate you for determination to feed your child on breast for 2 years. Yes you are cent percent right. So long as child is active, playful, passing frequent water like urine(not dark), and putting on weight, there is no reason to worry. Colour and consistency of stools can vary during early weaning period.

Myth- Infant formula is basically the same as breast milk

Myth- Infant formula is basically the same as breast milk
Fact-infant formula isn't the same as breast milk. It' s not a living product, so it doesn't have the antibodies, living cells, enzymes or hormones that protect your baby from infections & diseases in childhood & also later in life.

My baby is 4 months old. My baby is sleeping at night times. But he is waking up 4 to 5 times. So that I am not sleeping much. Due to that I am feeling sleepy in the afternoon. But my mother-in-law is saying that if you sleep you will get headache in future which cannot be cured. But I can't stop myself without sleeping.

No what your MIL says is old and baseless belief. It is normal for babies to wake up in between and trouble their mothers. It is part of motherhood! You can take rest/sleep when you are tired in afternoon.
