Toddler with stomach bug causing Diarrhoea. Is this normal following a tummy bug?

Hi, my 15 month old has had a stomach bug, one episode of committing and 24 hours of diareahh. She was off food for about 48 hours following. She in has just started eating again, firstly bland foods now back to just slightly smaller versions of her normal diet .... This morning she s had her first bowel movement following the bug, and it was a very pale colour although now normal consistency. Is this normal following a tummy bug? How long shoukd it last? Or should I see our gp for investigation? Thanks

Thanks for your query.
Your child had an episode of gastroenteritis which is mostly viral in nature and settles in few days.
This is good that she has started taking her normal diet and stool consistency is also normal.
Maintain her hydration and nutrition.
There is no need to go to doctor,you can wait for couple of days.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

Hi mom.
It is good that she has improved.
Pale colour of stool is quite normal.
If the colour is white or clay like & persist beyond 2-3 days you can see your GP on a non urgent basis.
Hope I have cleared your doubts.
