So Manny has been having the running butt since friday. & I think it has been getting worst first he would get changed & then poop again in another hr or so but now its like every few mins. Last night I changed his pamper & 10 mins later he started farting & then pooped again, & I changed him & he pooped again. Is there anything I can give him to thicken up his poop & help it slow down or stop or something please let me know.

nothing thats safe for babies but make sure he drinks pedilite or water so he doesn't get dehydrated

Try some bananas, scraped apples (not applesauce, scrape the apple with a spoon), cereals...make sure you really push fluids, as it's very easy to become dehydrated.  Hugs!

The white grape juice will cause the runs honey.  I would stop giving him that for a little bit. Call your dr office and ask so you are sure you are doing whats best.  They may want to see him with flu season being here!  My dr said to keep a close eye on Danica cause there is a terrible tummy flu going around.  Good luck honey.

he probably has the virus my son had it a couple of months they told me to let it play its course and just give him gatorade but not red for 24hrs. and then for me to give him some similac isomil for 2 days and then his poop would thicken back up and look seedy and they call it starvation stools and then it should clear up after a couple of days and that he can get his regular milk back but if its a virus the cereal in the milk will not help thicken it and its nothing they can really do
