In brief: See your doctor

In order to treat the diarrhea, it's important to know what is causing it in the first place.
Consult with your child's physician. In the meantime, make sure the child is being rehydrated with pedialyte or something similar.

In brief: Diarrhea

Diarrhea has many causes, including viral, bacterial or parasitic infections.
There are non infectious causes of diarrhea. Depending on the cause, the treatment should target the cause. Stay away from juices might help too.

Diarrhea for 2 weeks is an urgent problem. Advise calling your doctor today to have your baby seen and evaluated for the cause of the diarrhea so that proper treatment can be instituted. Meanwhile be sure that your baby gets enough fluid so that dehydration is prevented.
