Dr Sarah Brewer answers a number of commonly asked questions

Q: My baby has diarrhoea, should I worry?

A: If your baby develops vomiting and/or diarrhoea, it is important to have him checked by your doctor. Tiny babies are at risk of dehydration. Sometimes, special rehydrating fluids are needed. It is important to continue trying to feed your baby whilst he has diarrhoea - he will still absorb some goodness from his feeds. Breast milk contains substances to help fight the infection. Always ask your doctor for advice.
