Q.

19 months not himself

My son has not been himself since the weekend. He doesn''t want to eat. He is very moany and needy, which he is not normally. He has the most awful farts and his stooles are a very funny yellow colour and some very runny. He sleeps terrible. What could be causing this?

It seems that your toddler has picked up a tummy infection. Give him a probiotic such as Probiflora for 10 days and also give him frequent sips of Rehidrat solution for at least one day. Stop all fruit juices for at least 10 days.
