My baby has diarrhea, what should I do?

My baby is 19 days old and is taking nevarapine. She has diarrhea, can I give her some medication to stop it?


Thanks for getting in touch.

What you do will depend on how long your baby has been having diarrhea for- however as the following explains babies shouldn’t be given anti-diarrhea medication: https://www.babycentre.co.uk/a82/diarrhoea-in-babies

You can help by ensuring that your baby is hydrated. If your babies been unwell for more than a few days then you should seek medical advice.
