My 3 year old son developed diarrhea last night and it has continued through tonight. He has no fever, is eating normally and drinking normally and is not lethargic. We are pushing liquids and giving culturelle kids chewable probiotics. Am i crazy to be so concerned? No blood in the diarrhea either. Any reassurance is appreciated.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Just keep your child hydrated. BRAT diet, yogurt and peppermint till full recovery. Electrolyte solutions. Good hygiene and supportive care. No worries till there is no blood or dehydration.

Take care
