Hello,

Your baby should be seen by a doctor. He could have typical viral gastroenteritis, but that could also be COVID. If he is having 6-8 big loose stools every day and fever, he may be losing a lot of fluid as well. So he needs to be checked for dehydration.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Lisa Baker
