2 year old babygirl, mild diarrhoa for 1 week

My 2 year old babygirl has been having mild diarrhoa for a little over a week now. She does not have fever nor vomtting. She is eating properly. Her stools range from watery to soft to little soft balls. SHe only complains of cramps when she needs to pass a stool. She passes one or two stools a day in the morning. What could be wrong with her?

This sounds like a problem called toddlers diarrhoea. It is often caused by eating too much fruit or drinking too much fruit juice. Stop all fruit juice in her diet and also stop all fruit except for apples and bananas.
