Diarrhoea and vomiting is common in babies, but it’s still never easy to watch them suffer through it. One thing is for sure: When your baby has diarrhoea, you’ll know it right away.

Unlike the occasional loose stool, diarrhoea is more watery, frequent, and stronger-smelling than the everyday dirty diaper. The same is true for vomiting. It’s true that babies will often spit up, but it is noticeably different when a baby vomits. You’ll see that he’s more strained and distressed when he vomits. Spitting up usually doesn’t bother most babies, but vomiting will take its toll on him. Diarrhoea and vomiting can be caused by bacterial infections, viral infections, food poisoning, or food allergies or sensitivities.

Signs & Symptoms

Always check in with your paediatrician if your baby has diarrhoea or is vomiting, but also keep an eye out for these signs of dehydration that can occur from diarrhoea or vomiting:

  • Dark yellow urine.
  • Sunken eyes.
  • Lethargy.
  • Dry mouth.

Remedies

Frequent feeding is very important in order to take care of the baby’s hydration. Also, breast milk provides instant energy to cope with physical activities. Loss of water and electrolytes can give a lot of fatigue and weakness in the baby.

Homemade recipes like Fresh Buttermilk, Rice Gruel, Nutmeg Ghutti, Homemade ORS, Lemon sherbet, Fresh Curd, and  Vegetable Clear soup will help babies to recover faster. All the recipes are given in detail under the nutrition section of the app.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
