My son has diahrreah AGAIN, should I be worried?

My son has diahrreah for the 3 time in the last 2 weeks. Should I be concerned. He has not had anything to eat out of the ordinary. He has not tried any new food. It sucks because I am trying to potty train!

  • I'd keep him hydrated but I'd also call the doctor and see what he says.

  • could be nothing my now 3 year old gets diarehea a lot for no reason. She wont go all day like you would with diarehea, but just when she did or does go it will be diarehea. She has been like this since she was a baby. It was very hard to potty train her because of that. But then again it could be a virus of some kind he is fighting so if you are worried see what your doctor says.

  • my girls have a had bug now for about 4 to 5 weeks and that is part of it. Just make sure does not get dyrated. If in doubt call your doctor. also when have this problem try to cut back on dairy products like milk and cheese. If problem after milk try latcose milk to see if dairy is the problem. or wise just let it run its course and I know that is hard to just hang in there.
