Diarrhoea in children is mostly caused by viruses followed by bacteria.Some other organisms like fungi and protozoa may also cause diarrhoea The latter mentioned mainly cause diarrhoea in individuals who do not have the maximum capacity to fight infections (an example is individuals with HIV AIDS ).

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!

So sorry to hear about your experience. Note that you shouldn't border yet until further tests and scans are conducted in few days or weeks. There are two possibilities in this instance, the one is that the pregnancy is too early, or is not advancing due to implantation factors or the second possibility is that of an ectopic pregnancy. If the pregnancy is too early, the uterus might be empty and you'll need to do another test. So you can't conclude anything yet. You need to see a gynaecologist.

if your child is on exclusive breastfeeding. It's nothing to worry about. If on formula, then ensure you are mixing the formula correctly as well as give water intermittently. But please note that we only recommend Exclusive Breast feeding for the first six months of life.

On your baby throwing up after feed, it is reflux or more properly called Gastro-oesophageal reflux. It basically means food tend to return from the stomach back to the gut....which is the opposite of what is right way.
