Basics: These are often caused by gut viruses or reactions to new foods. If the kid is taking well enough to wet every 6 hrs or better they can be monitored at home. Applesauce and fresh bananas are good foods that natural slow/firm runny stools. Avoid juices until firm. In most this passes in a few days.
