I noticed my baby of 5months has been stooling frequently as she began to bring out tooth. Since u always advise that there is no correlation between stooling and teething, what do I do to stop the watery stool that sometimes has stuff like catarrh? Since we are advised not to give any teething medicine. Thanks
For watery stools if baby is more than 4 months give ORS and oral Zinc only if stools are watery... Not because it has mucus.

If the baby is exclusively breastfed, there is no need to worry. Kindly pay attention to your own diet and avoid herbal remedies or drugs that are not prescribed by the doctors which may pass via the breast milk to affect the baby. Avoid heavy spicy or flavoured foods as well as some also affect the baby when passed via the breast milk to the baby! If MUCUS persists in the stools kindly see a Paediatrician for thorough evaluation and management
