Having diarrhoea. Smells fishy. What should be the diet? Is it caused by bug?

Hi my 8 month old has had diarrhoea for 6 days now and is filling his nappy up to 12 times in 24 hours. He still has wet nappies but today I noticed the diarrhoea smelt fishy? Is this just a bug? What should I feed him till this passes I have been giving him either potato or wheatbix with milk and offering water and milk to drink ever few hours?

I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
It seems to be a stomach bug.
Give him lots of fluids and probiotics for a few days.
Avoid milk,juices and wheat products for the meantime.
