My 7 1/2 month old starting having diarrhea 2 weeks ago. he starting vommiting during the night and had severe diarrhea. The vommiting only lasted a day or so and the runs lasted about 5 days. The stools were about 5 a day. For about a week he off his formula and refused most foods. He would only take breastmilk. I took him to the GP who said it was a viral thing i.e DV bug and that it should start to clear in a few days. He advised not to stop food or milk and make sure he was getting solids. In week two baby has started drinking formula again and eating with no problems but he still has 2-3 explosive episodes a day. He soils through his clothes in a matter of seconds. It like a water paste - not pure water. All through out he has been perky, no fever and not at all sleepier than usual. Help!! Today I have changed his formula at the GP advice and reduced solid feeds. Has anyone experienced something similar? I have an older son of 4 who has not been ill.
