A baby has diarrhea if she produces loose, very watery stools more than six to eight times a day. This is usually caused by a viral infection. The danger, especially at this young age, is of losing too much water and becoming dehydrated. The first signs of dehydration are a dry mouth, significant decrease in the number of wet diapers. Don't wait for dehydration to occur. Call your pediatrician if the stools are very loose or occur more often that after each feeding.
