The study revealed that the common gastrointestinal tract [GIT] infections affecting infants are the following arranged from the highest to lowest frequency of occurrence: diarrhea, gastroenteritis, loose bowel movement, and gastritis. The study showed that 44.23% of the GIT occurred in infants in the 11-12 months age bracket while 2.85% affected newborns. The incidence of GIT infections tended to be higher in older children. Most children get GIT infection only once in a year time constituting 65.38% of the cases. Most of the causes are consistent with food supplementation, water contamination, bacterial infection, lactose and starch intolerance, and teething. Several feeding and weaning practices were suspected to be contributory to the incidence of GIT infections. These are: methods of feeding; improper formulation of milk formula 91.66% of respondents diluted formula in different ways; time of feeding; hygiene in breastfeeding; age of weaning; and methods of weaning
