I read somewhere to boil rice and give them the water which you boiled the rice in for them to drink....i heard about giving them rice but not the water but i did try it when my daughter had a gastro virus and it seemed to work after a few days.

How long has it been going on? My 10.5 month old has diarrohea at the moment but I'm pretty sure it's related to teething. Started 2 days ago and yesterday I noticed 2 new bottom teeth. I've read that diarrohea can be a symptom of teething.

If he doesn't seem sick in any way and if it doesn't seem to bother him, then maybe it may be related to teething??

Just make sure he's drinking plenty of water in between to keep his fluids up. Hope it gets better soon. :)

Wow, I hate that you can't see your doctor sooner, like today. But like thet other poster, bananas are helpful to us as are sweet potatoes. We don't do the whole BRAT thing, but just adding one of those to his meals generally helps firm things up. I know that we found our son cannot have cheese. It took us a week to figure it out, but it was causing diahhrea and horrible diaper rash, once we stopped it, both went away. So, if he doesn't seem sick, I'd take a good look at what he's eating.

what is he eating? Has anything in his diet changed? Is he sick? I know people who put their kids on the BRAT (bananas, rice, apples and toast) diet when they're sick. These foods tend to cause harder stools and can cause constipation.
