Q.

Runny Tummy

My baby boy of 15months has always had a runny tummy (now about twice a day - but very runny).
His stool has never been hard since the begining.
He is on Infacare 3 and is a very happy and healthy baby.
Should I be concerned?

This sounds like a problem known as 'Toddler's dirrhoea' which usually occurs in slightly older children. The usual cause is drinking too much fruit juice , so stop all fruit juices for at least 10 days and see if there is any improvrmnt. If not ,other things to consider include a food intolerance such as lactose intolerance.
