thank you for your replies. I took my son to the doctors & they have sent a sample away because it lasted more than 5 days. The dr did say it can be a common thing for babies to get diahorrea.

i would just keep an eye on it, if its really watery i would take him to the dr sooner rather than later as babies can get dehidrated quiet quickly if they have diahorrea.

i think it's just that time of year. My daughter had something last weekend that gave her a 24 hour bout of diarhhea, then this weekend she got something that gave her a bout of vomitting. both resolved quickly, but it was still horrible. she went months this summer without getting sick at all, and this winter so far she's had an ear infection, slight pneumonia, and these two episodes...all within 2 months.

Ive never been able to tell between diahhrea in babies and normal runny poo that they do....
