  • i would call your child's pediatrician and tell them you suspect your baby has diarrhea and has no unusual symptoms and they will tell you if your child needs to be seen by the doctor or not.

  • It depends on how old the baby is. Yellow seedy doesn't last forever. My son used to have soupy daipers that would fill the entire daiper front to back! It was horrible, but perfectly normal... The most important thing is how your baby is acting and feeling. If your baby won't eat, has a fever, or is abnormally fussy, then you should call your doctor of take baby in.
