  • Try the BRAT diet. Bannana, Rice, Applesauce, Toast. If she has had it that long, it could be the Rotavirus (sp). My son had that when he was 2, no fever, no vomiting, just Diarhea non stop. Best thing to do is just keep her hydrated. Don't worry if she doesn't eat too much, just lots of fluids. My son got dehydrated w/ this and it was awful! If this is what she has, it does last up to 7 days or so. Hope she feels better soon!

  • She's not vomiting, but wouldn't feeding her things with fiber make it worse? She doesn't really want to eat very much

  • I would take her to the doctor because my hubby was doing thins a week ago and they were still concerned about salmonella poisoning. They said it can take everyone's system a different amount of time before you know you have it. They will take a sample and have it tested. Plus they will need to make sure she does not get dehydrated! Please call your doctor. It could be something else!
