My 11 month old daughter has had diarrhea for one week now and I am starting to get concerned. The first couple of days I thought perhaps it was a stomach bug or I changed up her foods a little but since then I have gone back to her regular diet and nothing has changed. My son would get diarrhea before cutting a tooth, but I can't remember the diarrhea lasting this long.
She has been fussy and tired, but drinking lots and still has a healthy appetite.
Do you think perhaps there is a tooth coming? I don't see anything as of yet though.
