How do I treat dehydration and malnutrition in babies as the fontanelle sunken at times, and I was told it's oka, but don't want to use local herbs for her. Pls help a worried mother
Do not give any herbs, agbo or concoction, let a paediatrician see your baby and direct you on what to do.
If the anterior fontanelle is sunken, it can be from dehydration and/or malnutrition. See your paediatrician to diagnose the appropriate cause and institute the right management. General prevention, exclusive breastfeeding and immediate treatment of diarrhoea with ORS or other appropriate fluids.
