Wondering if my daughter has diarrhea and is sensitive to something I'm eating.  She is exclusively breast-fed and has had runny stool. Sometimes it is green. ?

Could be normal: you didn't mention how old your child is. Breast milk stools are always loose and range from green to yellow. Their color can be influenced by your diet but rarely is it a problem. If she,s nursing well and is content, then don't worry about color variation. If she becomes fussy and suddenly increases stool volume, then you may want to consult your doctor ...Read more

Sounds improving: These are often simple gut viruses that can be managed at home. Breast milk is often the best therapy. The minimal temp can be ignored. I expect about 3 of these a year until they reach 5. Their primary risk is dehydration, which usually only appears if they cannot feed well enough to keep up. If peeing every 6-8 hrs the kid is doing fine. ...Read more
