What can you do about diarrhoea?

If your baby is suffering from diarrhoea, try the following:

  • Avoid dehydration by giving your bub extra breast feeds and if needed small amounts of cooled boiled water
  • Continue to breast feed or bottle feed your baby as normal
  • Apply some barrier cream or petroleum jelly around their bottom to soothe and prevent soreness
  • Contact your nurse or GP for advice, and only give your baby diarrhoea medicine if it’s prescribed
