Hydrate!: It sounds like your daughter has a virus that is causing her symptoms. There is no specific treatments for viruses, but you can help her by making sure she stays hydrated. Watered-down juices, Pedialyte, milk, and water can help. The most important thing is that she keeps drinking. Eventually she will get rid of the virus on her own. Don't use any anti-diarrhea medicine! ...Read more

My 9 week old son poops once every 10 days. Yet, he's pooped 3 times in the past three days, 1 for everyday, andhis poop has been bright green/watery/stringy. Could therebe a problem?

Probably ok: Frequent, loose, sometimes greenish stools in infants indicate "rapid transit" of stools that can be due to host of issues but unless he is not eating, having fever, appearing ill may resolve with just observation or care with the diet if other foods have been introduced. If adding new foods this may be part of the problem but not necessarily mean they have to be stopped if this problem resolves. ...Read more

It's Okay: You've changed your diet, you are eating more. Let your gut do its thing. Probably you are drinking more dairy (lactose intolerance) or you are eating more protein. Whichever it is, your new diet is causing adaptation of your bacteria in your gut and just keep up the good work building muscle. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I am answering this six days after you wrote in. If you still have similiar symptoms, you need to be medically evaluated. It is watery because it is transiting the colon too quickly.

Took milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) and now I keep pooping yellow watery stool. Been like this for 2 days now. Every time I eat, it goes through.

Everytime I use the toilet 1-2 balls of stool exit &when I wipe the tissue is covered w/a watery brown (almost mucus like at times)substance. Serious?

Most likely not: This sounds like mucorrhea. This is not serious in of itself but is there any blood? The fact that you have this every time might be related to what you eat or could relate to irritable bowel. I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor so that it can be further defined and make sure you have nothing serious. ...Read more

What does a stool of yellow watery mean? I've been fine stool wise all day, and have eaten normal healthy food

Something you ate: Didn't agree with you. A single stool of watery yellow has very little clinical significance. Colon transit time determines stool color and consistency. The faster the transit time, the more watery and lighter in color the stool. If the loose stools continue for more than 24 hours or if you see blood in stools you should seek medical attention.

BRAT diet: We generally recommend the 'BRAT' diet for people with diarrhea, as it contains foods which help bind the stools. Things like Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast, plain chicken, pastas, etc. Electrolyte solutions such as Pedialyte help prevent dehydration and are better than sugary sodas or juices, which can make diarrhea worse. Some people need to avoid dairy while they are having loose stools. ...Read more
