Baby Diarrhea

Baby stools usually are softer than that of an adult, but if it gets very watery, mucus-streaked, smellier, and more frequent, then it is diarrhea. The causes of baby diarrhea are viral, bacterial, or parasitic infection, food allergy, poisoning, and consuming too much fruit juice. Diarrhea can lead to dehydration and can be acutely life-threatening, especially in newborns.
