Visited For Children's Health
I do not recommend the doctor
Visited the clinic in btm for my kid's diarrhea. He prescribed minimal medicine which is good. But since the diarrhea worsened by next day, visited him in appolo cradle next day. As new parents we were panicked by the severe diarrhea for a 6 months baby. When conveyed it to doctor, instead of giving assurance doctor shouted at me saying how can you expect it to control in 1 day. May be he is right but as a new mother I was worried and that was not the response I expected. As a doctor he should tell if the kid is fine , instead he was asking wether to admit her or not. If situation is worse, suggest to admit else please give proper guidance so that the parents take care at home. Finally kid was admitted for one day and the diarrhea was half controlled. Next day rounds doctor comes n says I'll observe her for one more day though the kid was much better n could be taken care at home. After saying will take care at home, he says to discharge. Parents rely on doctor review completely and will be tensed when the kids are sick. Please don't admit them unless actually required. Also doctor asked to avoid sugar in food but suggested to feed nestum rice which has sugars in it. But he prescribed minimal medicine n let the child recover which is good.

Your feedback is confusing!
Anyways I never shouted at you for your kind information but only said that it will gradually improve over a period of 3-5 days and not one day!
As some first time parents are very very anxious and not confident in taking care of babies at home we suggest admission so baby does not get dehydrated.
Nestum rice is starch or rice powder and has complex sugars not sucrose or lactose which can cause diarrhoea hence told you to give it to the child!
Inspite of proper Counselling and spending enough time parents get very very anxious!
Anyway thanks for saying your child got better with minimal medications !
