8 month old EBF has liquid poop

My Daughter has VERY liquid poop, it soaks right into her diaper. I am Gluten free and Dairy free. I can not find any information on what the problem could be, if there even is one. Any help or thoughts?

Has this been happening regularly over a long period of time, or is it something that's just begun to happen? Diarrhea can be a sign of a mild infection, or as others have said, it could be that she's having an allergic reaction to something. I'd give a call to the pediatrician.

It could be a food intolerance rather than a food allergy. An allergy involves the immune system, while an intolerance involves the digestive system. Both can cause stomach upset, diarrhea, etc. But only one will show up on an allergy test. Just because the allergy test is negative for food allergies doesn't' mean you aren't still dealing with food intolerance's.

My daughter is 7 months old and has had the same problem since she was about 6 weeks old she is still breastfeeding she eats very little solids (less that one baby spoon a day as she refuses) She has been put in the hospital once due to dehydration beacuse she goes to the bathroom so much and it is just like liquid. Her ped. said that she does not seem to have any allergies she tested her poop for blood etc. But my daughter has always had this problem I've always wondered why as well but never really found an answer. Not sure if this will help you but I just wanted to share my experience with you.
