9 Home Remedies for Diarrhoea in Kids

When babies have frequent and watery bowel movements, it can be quite painful for them. Keeping your child well hydrated and giving her sugar-and-salt or ORS with water is the very first thing that you should keep in mind. This said, here are home remedies that work wonders.

1. Yogurt

Yogurt helps to produce lactic acid in the intestines, which kill the germs. Sometimes kids get diarrhoea due to antibiotics too. In such cases probiotic yogurts work well because they replenish the beneficial bacteria, within the intestines that the antibiotics kill.

2. BRAT Diet

BRAT stands for banana, rice, apple (not the raw apple but the boiled and then mashed pulpy apple sauce) and toast (brown unbuttered toast). These foods, because of their binding nature control the loose bowels. After two days of the BRAT diet, you can begin to introduce fruits, and vegetables again but only very small amounts.

3. Fat and Fibres

For those suffering from chronic diarrhoea, a mix of fibre and fat works well. For example, you can cook various cereals and vegetables in olive oil or butter.

4. Buttermilk

The acid of the buttermilk fights the diarrhoea-causing bacteria. A few spoons of it mixed with a pinch of salt maybe be given two or three times a day.

5. Nutmeg

Nutmeg is very effective cure. Half a teaspoon of its paste can be given to kids. The dose can either be mixed in a little warm water, or given with honey.

6. Carrot Soup

This soup with has many minerals like sodium, potassium, phosphorus, etc, in it which helps to combat the infection. In order to make it, carrots should be boiled in water with a pinch of salt, till soft. Then it should be blended well until it becomes a smooth pulpy paste. A few spoons of it can be given to the baby.

7. Fruits

Pomegranate Juice - The juice of this fruit cures the infection, because of its astringent properties.

Mango seeds - These, if collected during season time, and then dried in the shade, and then powered, and kept, can be used as an effective home remedy for diarrhoea. For a toddler, no more than a pinch in a teaspoon of honey is required.

8. Spices

Turmeric - Turmeric is an effective intestinal antiseptic and a gastric stimulant. Add it to buttermilk or stir it into warm water.

Ginger - Powder dry ginger together with rock salt in an equal ratio. A pinch of that, with a little jaggery, cures diarrhoea well.

9. Coconut Water

Coconut water is an effective cure because it replenishes the body with nutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, and other phytonutrients. All these are in the form of electrolytes, which the human body can easily absorb.

Other than this, other liquids like barley or rice water are helpful too. The starch in them helps to bind the stools quickly.

However, if diarrhoea persists or you notice any blood in her stools, then its best to see the doctor.
