Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello,

Is she acting- fussy, consolable or excessively sleepy? Is she dehydrated? Signs of this are: reduced urination (either reduced frequency of wet diapers or smaller amounts of urine), no tears, dry mouth and tongue, doughy feel to skin.
Rash on skin?
Any fever?
Exposure to others who are ill?
Stool- color? Blood? Mucus or white strings?

Most common causes in otherwise healthy infant are viruses for which there is no specific treatment. Monitor temperature and watch for signs of dehydration. Usually the diarrhea lasts 3-4 days. Make certain that all caretakers wash their hands before and after handling baby.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Arnold Zedd, Pediatrician
