Hi lybrate-user. Teething does not cause diarrhoea. It might cause slightly loose stools as baby is salivating a lot during teething. Keep your child well hydrated. If your child is having watery stool than he needs to see a General Practitioner to treat different cause. Hope this is reassuring. The Face and Smile Clinic.

Acebrophylline is not the solution for cough. Better go a doctor nearby and get your child examine to find the cause of cough. Then go for treatment under supervision.

Just make sure your baby is being fed healthy foods and junk foods are not filling him up earlier. Try to trust that your baby knows how much food he needs, and never force feed your child, which can turn feeding time into fighting time. That said, if a refusal to eat has you worried, always talk to your pediatrician.

Hello. My four year old keeps getting sick over and over and passes it on to my 3 month old infant by coughing in his face. He doesn't understand that he needs to cover his mouth while coughing and often forgets to do so. I've put a mask on him, but unless supervised 24x7, he takes it off. I'm very worried about the baby's health. How can I help the situation?

Your child has developmental delay and need evaluation like blood CBC and TFT as anemia and hypothyroidism need to be ruled out , first of all. If you give bottle feed stop it and breastfeed and formula ( if at all you give - you should better avoid formula feeds ) with spoon and give lall home made food of his choice
