wORST WEEK OF MY LIFE *AND* my babay has the squits please please help
Sorry to hear about your predictament - I think it is what they call sod's law.
I once asked a pharmacist about giving a toddler something for the squits and they said there is nothing except oral rehydration drinks which sometimes help. Something like Dioralyte. Most medication starts at 6yrs.
Some books mention the BRAT diet of banana, rice, apple sauce and toast but sorry F& Z has already mentioned that.
FWIW I asked a doctor about taking Imodium during a bug and he said take it. Your bodies immune system deals with the bug - you don't have to worry about getting rid of it by letting it all 'flow'!
