Our 20 month old daughter is suffering from Toddler's Diarrheoa at the moment, which was diagnosed this morning.
Approx 2 weeks ago she had a viral throat infection and would not eat any solid food. She would only take milk (full fat cow's milk)and was drinking about 40-60 fl.oz per day. Once the viral infection cleared up, she still would not eat solids and the diarrheoa started. At the beginning she maybe had 3 dirty nappies per day (her normal was one) and these were very soft, but now it seems as if the milk goes straight through her. Every day the symptoms seem to get worse and our GP advised us to offer solids instead of milk. As her general health is excellent we are not too concerned, though she is often being sick after taking solid food.
Her diet could contain more fibre, which I will now try to introduce, but WILL NOT force her to eat. Before the viral infection she DID NOT drink juice of any description, DID eat plenty fruit and HAS BEEN drinking full-fat milk since she was 12 months old.
I did get a bit of a shock after reading on this website that it can carry on until they reach 5-6 years of age!!
I think that once we get her to gradually take some solid food the symptoms will greatly improve.
