  • Sounds viral. Some kind of infection from the green stuff. Take him to dr immediately diarrhea for more than two days in an infant is serious and sounds like he is also getting dehydrated, hence the not wanting to eat. Give lots of fluid, even popsicles if it will get him eating/drinking something and take to dr.

  • A stomach virus. Nothing you can do, have to wait it out a few days up til a week. Milk usually makes things worse unfortnately. Give some Pedialyte to replace electrolytes lost in vomi and diarreha.

  • Flu bug. Give him pedialyte, it even comes in Popsicles now too.
    Call you peed. In the morning to see if they want to see him or not.
    Is he up to eating solids, he might like some of those baby rice crackers.

  • Thanks!!! Very helpful. Yea he only drinks his milk, its hard to make him drink water or Pedialyte.

  • Pedi said to lay off the milk when DD had this... Milk/formula truly does make it worse. Lay off the milk until you can get baby to the pedi in the morning. But I'd also definitely call them tomorrow. It's very dangerous for little ones under 1 year to have diarrhea this long... I'd not let it go more than two days without consulting the pedi.
