• In the Spotlight:

We had a GI virus go through our house a week ago. It was alot of throwing up and loose stools....eeeeeuuuuckck!!!! We are getting a new couch because of it all. Anyways, my son has had persistent diarrhea for a week now. I don't know what to think!?!? I talked to the Peds office and they said bland diet, no juice, give diluted Gatorade, pedialyte the whole thing, but it still persists?!!?! He is playing as normal, is active and not acting or appearing dehydrated. I gave him a very small amount of acidophilus for children, maybe that is causing more diarrhea?!?! Any advice appreciated, karen in motown

My grandson had that awhile back ......for about two weeks. .....we took away all juices, gave him ice tea....gatoriade ....and milk.....for drinks.    His diet we kept very bland.  It finally went away.   Good luck!
