    Feeding A Baby With Diarrhea

    Feeding a baby with diarrhea can be nerve-wracking, as you may worry about irritating his gut and worsening his symptoms. This page suggests foods that may help "bind" your baby - and also lists some foods that are best avoided as his delicate intestines recover.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    The information given here does not replace professional medical advice. Babies with diarrhea can become dehydrated very quickly - if your baby has diarrhea, it is very important to consult your doctor, so that he can establish the cause of the problem and take the necessary action to treat it.


    Feeding a baby with diarrhea - foods that can help

    • Bananas
    • infant rice cereal
    • breast milk/formula
    • dry toast
    • cooked carrots
    • pasta
    • cooked white potato
    • applesauce (try our sugar free applesauce recipe)
    • white grape juice
    • yogurt (Bio yogurt is particularly effective at helping stop diarrhea, because it contains the bacteria Lactobacillus, which is "friendly" to the gut)

    Re: Feeding A Baby With Diarrhea

    Feeding a baby with diarrhea - should I continue to breastfeed?

    Yes - breastfeeding your baby when he has diarrhea actually helps him recover more quickly. However, you should avoid things like cola and coffee - these can pass to your baby through your milk and may worsen his symptoms.

    The golden rule when feeding a baby with diarrhea is to give him small, frequent meals. It may take a while for his stools to become completely firn again, as babies intestines tend to heal fairly slowly. But if your baby's diarrhea seems persistent, or if you are at all concerned, then don't hesitate to seek medical advice.
