5-month-old Has Diarrhea About 15 Times A Day And Cannot Breastfeed

Her birth was like a festival. We couldn't wait to welcome our daughter. Prabhavati and I were just lost in our dream until Sharika was 45 days old. She had diarrhea, and I recognized it as a symptom of food allergy/food poisoning. What I didn't expect is for her to be battling to survive for 5 months.
Once I realized that my child had stomach issues, I rushed her to the local pediatrician. He said there was nothing to worry. It was quite common in new borns. Sharika began to have diarrhea almost every hour whether she had eaten or not. It was frighteningly persistent. She was extremely dehydrated, which is when we had her admitted to the hospital.


She cannot be breastfed because of this condition

At first, she was on observation. Sharika would either vomit or pass by diarrhea anything she consumed orally. She was always dehydrated and also losing out on nutrition. They tried providing nutrition intravenously to help her body recover while they proceeded with a diagnosis. 

Sharika has been diagnosed with an infection. Her intestines have been affected with CMV (cytomegalo virus) causing colitis. She needs long term intravenous nutrition until the virus is completely out of her system. For 3 months she has not had an oral feed. 

She was feeling better a few days ago, so the doctor said, "Rajkumar, you can take her home for a few days now." We tried feeding her orally. This phase lasts for 2 days at the max. She is active just for 2 days. The diarrhea is back. She is very weak. She cries most of the time, and we will be back at the hospital the next day.

We have sold everything possible to get help

In the past few months, her medical bills have shot up to over Rs. 7 Lakhs. I work at a company that manufactures spare parts for automobiles. Although I earn Rs. 13000, I managed to save as much as I could, sell my wife's jewellery and take loans to pay this amount. Now, my child needs further treatment and I'm at a point where affordability is just a dream.

How you can help

Honestly, I do not know how long it will take for her to recover. But I do know this. Nobody will give up on their new born child when she is fighting for life. My 5-month-old daughter has been feeling this way for a long time now. 

Your contribution will help me save her. She can finally come back home to us.

Raj was broken by the time he has requested for help from Milaap. The local money lenders had stopped giving money and since he was not able to go to office his monthly income too stopped.


All of you came in the right time and helped this little girl.
