An infant has diarrhea if she produces loose, very watery stools more than six to eight times a day. The danger is of losing too much water and becoming dehydrated. The first signs of dehydration are a dry mouth and a significant decrease in the number of wet diapers.
Treatment: over-the-counter antidiarrheal medications are not recommended for infants. Antibiotics should be used only to treat certain types of bacterial infections. Call your pediatrician before giving your infant any medications.
