  • You need to let your doctor know there hasn't been any change. He could have a bacteria that is causing the problem. I wouldn't change up his diet unless it is under your doctor's supervision.

  • Breast or formula? If breast, nurse A LOT. Pedialyte is usually not really needed in a breastfed baby, unless they show signs of dehydration.
