I feed him a lot of table food. string beans, peas, pasta, chicken, lots of chicken.. He likes that. I also feed him fruit yogurt and fruit juices.. Please help me before I have to make the doctors appt.. I have one next month for his 1 year shots.. Thank you

There are some nasty intestinal bugs out there. Depending on how much of the virus got in their system will determine how sick they get, so he may have gotten a milder form of one of these illnesses. Sometimes the diarrhea can start out with an illness then continue due to the loss of good bacteria in the digestive tract. Dairy usually makes diarrhea worse. If he is still on formula and its milk based, try a switch to soy. If he is on cow milk, try soy milk. Also, try getting some acidopholis capsules and sprinkle it on his food. It wil replace the good bacteria he has probably lost from the extended period of diarrhea.

How bad/how often is it? You might want to phone the doctor and see what he/she says about it. I know it doesn't take much for them to dehydrate...but you don't want to overdo the water either.
