Likely infection: GERD & Teething should not cause diarrhea for 5 days. The most important thing is to prevent dehydration from the diarrhea. Increase the fluids and if the child is not peeing every few hours like normal or is listless or lethargic or otherwise seems unwell speak to your doctor.

Mgt: The GI symptoms may be related to a viral illness and worsening signs of GERD. Teething does not cause these symptoms. Continue feeds with breast milk and please contact your PCP.
