My son's 8 months old, for the past 5 day's he has had diarrhea. Doc said it's a viral infection, I stopped giving him dairy (formula) and switched him to alsoy to make sure he's still getting the nutrients and to keep him hydrated. All day yesterday, he was fine! No scoots lol. Then this morning I gave him his reg formula...1 1/2 hrs after eating it, he had diarrhea again. 2x since and he's had 2 dairy bottles. First thing this morning before any dairy his poop was totally normal!!! I'm confused, if this is a viral infection why did his stool go normal again, until after eating 2 bottles of his reg formula?? Do you think it's possible that he's developed a milk allergy at 8 months old?

I've had him on soy for about 1 week, this morning is the first time going back to the dairy. I'm going to give him his reg formula for a few more day's...I'm also going to give him some more pedialyte to make sure he has electrolytes replaced. If by mid week he still has diarrhea I'm going to go back to the Doc's..thanks for the advice this helps a lot. I just didn't understand why the soy formula gives him normal stool, then the dairy based give him diarrhea again. I guess the bug's still in his tummy!
