  • Well When ever my kids have diarrhea I give them the same thing
    1)Iced water
    2)crackers
    3)gingerale
    4)toast
    Some times i turn the gingerale into a slushy
    If baby is dehydrated them buy electrolights

  • When my kids were that age, I was told that I shouldnt' give them anything. But I would give them a tiny bit of Pepto Bismal to take some of the acidicness away, but other than that, give him lots and lots of liquids

  • Nothing with sugar in it...no juices or any drink with sugar in the ingredients. Stick to water and milk as long as milk doesn't give your kid diarrhea.

    Starches and carbs, starches and carbs, starches and carbs. Worry about a balanced diet AFTER s/he's "bulked" up.
