  • If you were to take him to the doctor they would probably tell you to let it run its course, make sure he is hydrated, maybe give him some pedialite and try to make him as comfortable as possible, maybe get him some pull ups or something to save his clothes from the accidents...

  • have him eat bananas, crackers, noodles, oatmeal, potatoes, rice, toast, and soups with rice or noodles. It helps a lot.

  • Diarrhea is the body's way of getting rid of the bacteria or virus that needs to be removed. Considering that he just woke up with it this morning I would let it run its course and just make sure to keep him hydrated.

  • Keep him hydrated. Treat him with diet only. Bananas, applesauce, rice and butter. Yogurt too.
