I had written earlier about how Nisarg was having problems with gas and diarrhoea and the doctor had prescribed Bonnisan. Then I wrote about how after just two days, Nisarg had normal baby poop for the first time in his life.
Well…. half a month later, we haven’t had a single loose bowel movement yet, and Nisarg is filling up quite well, with chubbying cheeks and slight hints of plumpness that we associate with babies. I don’t think he’s ever going to be one of those round babies, but hey, he’s healthy, active and putting on weight steadily. He also put on an inch in height – he’s now 22 inches.
I don’t know what he weighs, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s put on a kilo from the last appointment to the next.
Maybe its just regular growth, but I’m of the opinion that the Bonnissan really helped. He just was cranky (for him) and slow to grow since the gas set in till before we started with it.
I have been researching on loose stools and the various problems thereof-squirts of poop with every fart- acidic stools- rash etc. for my EBF baby of 3.5 months.
We tried enterogermina, z&d drops, stool test (all negative), antibiotics for a week, got frustrated with no improvement whatsoever. On the recommendation of my elders, we gave our baby Bonnisan yesterday once and today morning again. There is no perceptible improvement (miraculous like in your case) but I do sense some irritability in the baby (could be other reasons as well but nothing else has changed except that we administered these drops).
I chanced upon your blog while reading up on bonnisan. Wanted to check 2 things:
1) Our baby is having loose stools for almost a month now. Does Bonnisan work in such cases? How long does it usually take for Bonnisan to be effective?
2) Can you suggest other remedies for loose stools (squirting poop with gases)?
