Hi Libby,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
I advise you to give exclusive breastfeeding to your child till the age of 6 months.
The diarrhea may be due to a virus or bacteria due to contamination by giving top feeds with a bottle.
Maintain hydration by giving breastfeeds frequently and by oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte.
You can give probiotic like lactobacillus or saccharomyces after the advise.
The wrong may be in the technique of feeding in giving the top feeds.
Hope I have answered your query.
