Sorry if this has been done before, I did do a search (ok fishy?) but couldn't find anything.
Basically dd has had diaorrhea since Weds, and has a cold and a bit of a cough but she's completely normal apart from that. Am trying to keep her fruit intake down but she's loves it to bits so its quite hard. Also getting as much water, or watery juice down her as possible but she'll only drink about a glass full a day and wants lots of milk. I know milk isn't good for diaorrhea but surely its better than not getting fluids down her?
So basically what should I give her to counteract the diaorrhea?
Does she like bananas, theyre supossed to be good for bad tummys, as for the milk if thats all she will drink then you cant realy not give her any, is there anyway you could water the milk down. Dairy products will just feed the bug and make it last longer, flat coke is suposed to help if you can get it in to her.
Forgot to say I have been watering the milk down - about half and half and she'll have about 3 glasses of that and her bedtime bottle, so she gets about a litre of fluid or a little bit under. Will give her lots of banana, thanks.
