Diarrhea, or the passage of watery stools, is a very common illness in children that typically gets better by itself within a week.
With diarrhea, it is important to watch for signs of dehydration (decrease in urine, no tears when crying, listlessness).
Absolutely not. Once they are rehydrated, let the child eat as much or as little of the usual diet as she wants. If they are vomiting, offer small amounts of fluids frequently.
These medicines are not useful in most cases of diarrhea and can sometimes be harmful. Never use them unless they are recommended by your pediatrician.
