  • Is her poop yellow and really horrid smelling? If so it's probably the same virus that went around not too long ago. A lot of mommies had babies with diarrhea for around 3 weeks. My dd had it for a little under 4 weeks.

  • Yes, take her to the Dr, first thing Monday morning. IF she becomes lethargic or any worse, take her to the hospital. There is something going on with her, and it needs to be treated.

  • I don't want to scare you but many children die from having many consecutive days of diarrhea. Make sure she has liquids, try pedialyte and get her to the doctor to see if they can put her on some meds to stop it.
