Answer: You can find a lot of different textures, colors, and odors in a baby’s poopy diaper based on what he’s eating (breast milk, formula, or solid foods). The poop is normally much softer than an adult's, and it’s not uncommon for it to be even softer than usual sometimes. But if it suddenly gets much looser or more watery, and happens more often and in large amounts, it may be diarrhea.Most common causes are food allergy or sensitivity to medicines An infection with a virus, bacteria, or parasite. Babies can pick up these germs through contact with unclean food or water or when they touch germy surfaces and then put their hands into their mouths.
I recommend that you give your baby an oral rehydration solution. These products, which you can buy easily, have fluids and electrolytes and can prevent or treat dehydration.
If your child eats solid foods, i recommend switching to bland, starchy foods like strained bananas, mashed apple and rice water until the diarrhea stops. Mothers who are breastfeeding might need to adjust their own diet to avoid any foods that could trigger diarrhea in their babies.Diarrhea that's caused by a viral or bacterial infection is very contagious. Wash your hands with warm water and soap every time you change your baby's diaper to prevent the infection from spreading. Keep the diaper-changing area clean and disinfected. Keep your child home from day care until he is completely recovered. If it's not getting controlled or getting worse please see a doctor.

However, apply little asafoetida mixed in luke warm water on the tummy of your baby twice or thrice in a day.. You will see the difference..
