The home remedy I use is infant probiotics! I find that it works within 8 hours or so. You should be able to buy it at a natural food store.

I follow the Dr Sears remedy/diet.

BRATY (Bananas, Rice, Apple sauce, Toast-dry, Yoghurt) and plenty of fluid. It usually clears away in a day or so...

Make sure your little one is drinking plenty of water or other clear fluids like chicken broth so they don't become dehydrated. Also avoid milk it can make the diarrhea symptoms worse.

The home remedy for any kind of diarrhea for babies is for them to eat carrots, rice cereal, bananas, potatoes, and applesauce to help firm the stools. Fruit juices, peas, pears, peaches, plums, prunes and apricots should be avoided until the stools are back to normal. Yogurt is wonderful as well as it has Lactobacillus Acidophilus (or L Acidophilus), which is a good bacteria that fights bad bacteria. If the diarrhea continues I would see a Doctor. Good luck! :)
