My son is 8 months and for the past week he has been having TERRIBLE diaherrea. Its so bad that is comes out the sides of his diapers and we have to change his clothes 4 times a day b/c it gets EVERYWHERE. He is teething but he hasn't been fussy at all here lately like before when he first began so I don't know that its related to that or what? He is not on any antibiotics either. Why would this been happening for such a long period? Any ways to stop it? I tried yogurt and my son hates yogurt and I haven't seen it help yet either.

  • my kids went through that too! i did research and tried a lot of things.. the BRAT diet sometimes works- bananas, rice, applesauce and dry toast. applesauce didnt really help mine so much.. pedialyte helps and we even tried propel water because of the electolytes in it. it was a bad stage... and lasted maybe a week... but good luck to you!!
