My son has had diarreah for 6 days now. It it slowly getting better, but does anyone know what foods are good to help firm it up? He threw up last Sunday and then Wednesday and has had diarreah since Wednesday. He is eating more now then 6 days ago but not as much as he was. His mood is back to his usual self today but still he has the diarreah, and his temperature has been normal

My little one had diarreah for a few days and I called the doctor who rang me back and reassured me. He said it could go on for about a week and as long as she wasn't constantly throwing up she would be OK, just to give her milk and then slowly introduce solids again after about 4 days.
He said it was the ones who are constantly throwing up that are a concern. Sx

Did you take him to the doctor?? With adults after three days your suppose to go and see a doctor, 6 days for a baby?? DOCTOR!!!

Is he better yet?

He hasn't thrown up for 5 days now. He just has the diarreah now. I know he's not dehydrated, he has a usual amount of wet diapers. I am keeping a careful eye on his hydration. He drinks lots, he is just not eating as much as he used to but he is eating.

Take him to the doctor?? (have you already) Just in case, throwing up and vomiting is really bad.

Breads gluggy foods, limit fiber intake. Plenty of water, biggest problem with infant diarreah is dehydration. :)
