  1. How many times has the kid had diarrhea since morning?

  2. How is the urine output?

  3. Is there any green colored vomiting or blood in the motion?

  4. Is the kid feeling dehydrated and weak?

  5. Is the kid running any temperature?

  6. Did the vomiting start first or the diarrhea?

  7. Did this start after any unhygienic or street food or exotic new food which the kid never had before?

1. twice a day2. As normal 3.no vomited at all 4. He looks fine, as usual 5. He's temperatures is fine 6.he only has diarrhea 7.no he eat porridge and drink milk as usual, we didn't change anything

Then do not worry at all and be rest assured this is not diarrhea at all.

Unless she is having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry.

That is fine as long as he is not dull and dehydrated. It is physiological.

It can take 2 weeks too. But it all depends on the diet and reduce high sugar content and fruit juices in his diet.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Every day I feed same things to him never happened like this, milk 500ml a day and twice of the porridge and once fruit gets lot time of water a day

It some times happens by itself and that is how the intestines grow and develop.
