Thanks for your help, I think it was just a lot of gas...it looked terrible and made me kinda nervous becuase he had never had such bloating before! He slept a lot yesterday, downed multiple banannas and some yogurt and woke up from his nap much happier. Thanks again!

How is he acting?  Does he seem to be in pain?  If he seems to be acting okay, I would just make sure he's getting extra fluids for the ones he's losing with the diarrhea.  If he's not getting enough fluids, that might cause some bloating.  I've found that bananas, yogurt and cheese help my son's diarrhea.  Good luck!!
