If there is no difficulty in passing stools you need worry about infrequent stools. Increase the amount of fibre and give adequate water.

Hello lybrate-user, The symptoms you have described certainly point towards a neurological problem. Repeated vomiting is often caused by increased pressure around the brain (Medical term- Intracranial Pressure) and leads to 6th nerve palsy, which means squinting of one or both eyes towards the nose. Patching is done so that child does not suffer from double vision. Spectacles have no role in this. In most conditions, These nerve palsies recover spontaneously in few months without squint surgery. However, you need to keep a close watch on the child's general condition. In case of any abnormal behaviour, consult a neurologist/ pediatric neurologist. Feel free to contact me in case of any doubt. I would like to see the child's photograph before and after developing the squint to guide you better.

Better to stick on to breast feeding. Sometimes babies pass stools once in 4-5 days especially if fed with artificial milk. No need to worry for 1 day.

I am using nasivion drops which helps him breath easily and again after 12 hours the nose gets blocked. I am also applying him eucalyptus oil but it's not stopping.

My baby boy is 1 month 5 days old. From day 11 he was passing loose stools 16-18 times a day. He has prolonged physiological jaundice-too. Doc suggested to take enterogermina but still he is passing loose yellow at times yellow-greenish colored stools. Urine output is 10-12 times a day. He is exclusively on breast feeding. Since his body weight is steadily increasing so doc asked us to wait. We are worried. It’s difficult to manage as he almost passes stools in every one hour. Please help.

Just one off loose stools doesn't indicate much. If the baby is otherwise well, continue dexolac. Try expressed brest feeding as well so you can add goodness of it as well.
