Diarrhea: Diarrhea can range from very mild to severe. For severe diarrhea and associated symptoms, i would recommend going to either the emergency room or urgent care clinic. Worrisome diarrhea generally would include symptoms such as: high fever, unrelenting diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, blood or mucous in stool, dehydration, dizziness, or accompanied vomiting. When in doubt, go check it out.

Diarrhea care: You take her to doc if she has uncontrolled vomiting, blood in the diarrhea, no urine output in 12 hours or severe stomach pain that you can't control at home. Also if other symptoms - for instance, hurts when she pees, may indicate uti. Also recommend starting probiotic (tablet or via yogurt), and get some protein back in diet - scrambled eggs and peanut butter on crackers great if not vomiting.

Can breast milk cause diarrhea?

No: ...Although it is normal for breastfed baby's stool to be quite loose. Rule of thumb: if the weight gain is appropriate, it isn't diarrhea no matter what you find in the diaper, or how often.

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.

See a doctor: This is not normal and needs a rapid diagnosis, and treatment based on the diagnosis. You have an inflammatory condition of the colon and this could be infectious or inflammatory bowel disease or other. Do not wait. See somebody asap, and hope you are better soon.
