What can I give my 3 1/2 yr old for diarrhea?

He has had it for about 2 weeks. Tomorrow I am going to see if I can get him an appointment. I just wanted to try something til then. Is he too young for Pepto Bismol? He weighs 38 lbs.

  • If he's drinking milk, don't let him have it until the problem goes away. Bananas, rice, apples and toast. Bananas really work well for my little guys.
