  • apples, applesauce, crackers, bread, toast, rice, dry unsweetened cereal. all you can do is wait it out, sadly. unless they're actually truly dehydrated, though, pedialyte is a waste of money and just putting extra sugar into them and filling the tummy up w/ a liquid instead of things like rice/toast to help bind and stop the pooh

  • pedialite is good to avoid dehydration. Keep them drinking.
    bananas can be binding, it might help reduce the diahrrea

  • bananas, it'll save their bottoms too! Bananas firm up bowel movements. Just keep them hydrated with pedialite, water....
    I wouldn't recommend apple juice or acidic juices as they tend to promote loose bowels!

  • Probiotics. Good ones that need to be refrigerated, not the crap that's supposedly in yogurt, cheese, etc.

  • bananas

  • I second the probiotics. That is what my son's pediatrician recommended when he had diarrhea
