This may be due to the high content of prostaglandin in human milk, which promotes the smooth muscle movement of small intestine, increases the secretion of water and electrolyte and produces loose stool. It may also be that children are intolerant to lactose and lack lactase in vivo. Lactose intolerance can be divided into two types: primary and secondary. The amount of lactose in children's feces can be determined by lead acetate method for primary screening, and then confirmed by rapid effect after lactose free diet. When the so-called physiological breast milk diarrhea occurs, do not change to feed milk for the formation of stool. The baby's body will gradually adapt to the prostaglandins in human milk, and lactase will gradually develop and mature. With the increase of enzyme activity, it can decompose, digest and absorb lactose, and gradually improve with the increase of complementary food. In addition, children should not cover their nipples. After each side of the breast is basically empty, if they continue to suck, the amount of fat in the milk will increase, which is easy to cause lipodyspepsia. It is suggested that they should be sucked and stopped without sucking. Every time about 10 minutes, the full breast can be basically empty.

If it was originally breast-feeding, the time of each breast-feeding should be shortened. Originally mixed feeders can stop feeding milk or other milk substitutes and only feed mother milk. Originally artificial feeders, the amount of milk should be reduced, and then add water or dilute rice soup, or feed rice soup alone, because rice soup is easier to digest and absorb than milk. The supplementary food that has been fed should also be reduced or not fed temporarily.
