Keep breastfeeding: Breast milk has antibodies that help reduce viral diarrhea length. There is no medication for diarrhea at this age. Keep buttocks covered in vaseline. However, exclusively breastfed infants will often have squirty mustard looking stools with chunks - often called diarrhea by those used to harder firm stools of formula fed stools. If this persists, make appt with MD to check weight and check health
