Let’s Talk about…Diarrhea

Diarrhea can be defined as a child having anywhere from 1-6 or even more liquid stools per day.  They can be explosive, foul smelling, and have a variety of colors.  Some pediatrician may call it “toddler’s diarrhea” and say it should be ignored, but diarrhea is never normal unless associated with a passing viral infection.  These children with recurring diarrhea tend to be in pain, have bloated tummies and are commonly very uncomfortable after eating.  They also tend to have a lot of self-injurious behaviors.  Many would rather not eat and thus have muscle wasting in the extremities.
