Rumbly tummy?: Do you mean rumbly (noisy) tummy or diarrhea (runny stools)? Vomiting and diarrhea often occur in babies and children as a result of viral infections. Usually these don't cause fever or bloody poops, and kids get through them. Often it helps to frequently give small amounts of breastmilk or fluids if the baby is sick with fever > 102f or not keeping down enough fluids to pee 3-4 x per day, seedr.
