Baby having grainy, watery, sticky, dark stools frequently in a day. Eating normally. Solution?

Hi, My 23 month old has had grainy, watery, sticky and dark poo for a few days now, there s quite alot (leaks every time) at least about 3/4 a day. He is fine in himself - happy and loud!! He is eating as normal. Had the normal winter colds etc but not at the moment. When first newborn (11lbs 5) he was in hospital for a month for fast breathing and not drinking milk (tube fed). Then he struggled with some formulas but was fine in the end. HOping its not a dietry thing - but how long should I leave it until I go to GP? Thanks

Your child is having gastroenteritis mostly of viral.
Try to maintain his hydration by giving sips of oral rehydrating solutions ,coconut water and lemon water with some salt.
It is looking not related to his dietary thing.
Consult your Doctor for the examination of his hydration status and for specific treatment.
Hope i have ansered your query.
