My doctor told me that there was a bug going around causing mild diarhea in babies. He told me that as long as I gave her formula (or breast milk), which had everything she needed, then it would be gone in a few days, no problem. Then I told him she'd been having it for a week, and he then told me she might be lactose intolerant. Bottom line, if this continues, go see your doctor. It could be serious, or it could simply be a change in diet. Also, make sure that you change your child's diaper frequently. My daughter got a bacterial rash from the diarrhea and it took weeks to get it to settle down. It was bleeding, and absolutely HORRIBLE! Trust me, you want to prevent a diaper rash now before it's too late. Use a&d ointment after every diaper change. And if anything starts up, use desitin.
