Hi, my 2yr old has been dx with toddler diarrhoea, he ha anything up to 10 episodes a day! Food allergies and intolerances etc have all been ruled out. Next course of action is a fat supplement to help slow his digestive system down a bit but won't get this for a few weeks.
Any advice please?

could you try a good probiotic? biocare? has he had food testing? I would cut out wheat and dairy but others may disagree. ..

Our toddler diarrhoea turned out to be undiagnozed milk intolerance, which started around the age of 1 - even DS's usual formula was a problem. All allergy tests came negative, but doctors says they are sometimes non-informative

Now he is 4, but if he drinks a little bit of milk - he is on the toilet for the most of the day. he is fine with yougurts/fermented (sour) milk

in my home country toddler diarrhoea does not exist as a diagnosis, doctors usully do stool samples and prescribe probiotics, sometimes it works....
