  • the BRAT diet works well, and also call doc. B=bananas, R=rice, A=applesauce,T=toast...and the pedialyte until you can get it under control and talk to doctor.

  • If my one year old daughter gets the poopies, I let her have plenty of bananas. They can constipate a baby with normal bowel habits, but they work great to cure diarrhea and they replace the potassium that you lose as a result of it.
