my kids have diarrhea...that's it. ?

today and a bit yesterday my kids have had diarrhea, not all day, dd had it twice today and once yesterday, ds had it once last night. there are no other symptoms, no fever, no whining, no crying, they're acting fine. normally when they're sick they just lay around and do nothing...where could this diarrhea be coming from? their food intake hasn't changed, they haven't had anything new...and i still water their juice down.

  • My son just had a bout of diarrhea. Nothing else, just the diarrhea. He'd had it for a week when I took him to the doctor. She said to try giving him acidophilus or pro-biotic yogurt. I gave him the yogurt and it cleared it up.

  • They could have a little bug. Just make sure they are getting plenty of water.

  • Sometimes diarrhea just happens.. If it persists I would be concerned, but if it is just that and no other symptoms, just make sure they stay hydrated and feed them more bland foods.
