  • My 21 month old recently had diarrhea and it was pretty stinky. I can't remember exactly what it smelled like. I would just keep an eye on your child and make sure it stops soon. He shouldn't go more than 10 times a day. (I still think that's a lot, but that's what his Dr. said) I ended up having to take my son to the ER for dehydration. I kept taking him to the Dr. trying to avoid it, but they didn't think it was serious. My son didn't want to eat/drink anything that's why he got dehydrated. Please don't let that happen, it's the worst thing to see your children sick/in pain.
