7 month old developed the squirts. Any advice?

His doctor is not concerned, and it is not diarrhea. It started 7 days ago. I do not see any teeth coming in (however I may not be able to tell). He has no teeth now. I have stopped all solids, so he is only on formula.

He is still having a normal morning BM, with 6 tiny bits through out the day. And a terrible rash of course...

I had him on 1x/pr day, baby probiotics, which I have also stopped.

Can you get too many probiotics? His poo was smelling sour, which is weird, but the smell is dissipating.

You can always get to much of anything. He could have some kind of viral/bacterial infection that is working its way through his system. Try the BRAT diet for the 'squirts' keep food bland too much flavor/seasoning will just iritate his bowels more. Also I'd give him some pedilite too to make sure he's not getting dehydrated. Somethings we just have to let our body's fight off :(
