Message length 300 characters recommended

Sometimes children get loose stools when they eat too much fruit or fiber. We feed ours cheese, which is binding or any dairy really, if they are not allergic, which ours are not. You can also provide crackers or bread.

I wouldn't be concerned about a loose stool here and there but prolonged loose stools may indicate diarrhea, which in turn could cause dehydration.
