My son is 15 months old and has had diarrhea for 2 days now. He's been drinking plenty of water so I'm not worried about dehydration. Anyone have any recommendations on foods I can give him to help stop this? I've been giving him bananas and applesauce, but no improvement yet. He's allergic to wheat and eggs so anything with those is out and I haven't been able to get him to eat any rice. Any ideas on what else I can try?Answer Question

I would suggest the BRATY diet from Dr Sears (bananas,rice, applesauce, toast, yogurt) but with the allergies I'm not sure what to suggest. My Pedi said no dairy and you should stay away from things like sports drinks with a lot of added sugar. Also skip the apple juice and pear juice because they can make it worse. White Grape juice is better for diarrhea. I'd call your Pedi and see what they say.
