How To Cure Diarrhea With Fever?
t morning, my daughters are twin girls aged 6 months 21 days. They were born prematurely and took formula. I have accommodated them. Now they have a fever and have diarrhea with yellow mucus for 3 hours or more often. How do you treat it, and is there anything wrong with giving complementary foods? What should a good space for that age look like? Because now I’m stressed thinking about my child’s diarrhea that won’t stop even though I’m taking medicine.
