Bloody diarrhea: Blood in the stool along with mucous and recent antibiotic usage could mean an infection with C. difficile . There is a rapid test for this that can be sent to the lab. Keep your baby well hydrated and consider use of a probiotic to put the good bacteria back in his intestine.

Antibiotics/diarrhea: If a young child is on antibiotics the GI tract can be affected because we have "good" bacteria in the gut that helps with digestion. Antibiotics kill the bad and good bacteria, a probiotic should be taken at the same time. Probiotics contain live bacillus bacteria that the gut needs. Now that there is diarrhea, cut out the milk. There is a temporary lactose intolerance which also causes diarrhea
