Are you sure she has diarrhea? She shouldn't have solid poops at this age. They will be very runny since that is all they are eating. I have never formula fed at this age so I may be wrong on this. Does she have a fever? Is she acting sick?

My little girl is 2 weeks old and she is formular fed. Her pooh is very runny and yellow. I think its normal hun.

She has been a little grumpy for a few days been thoughing up her feed and crying alot.

If your worried about her getting dehydrated carry on giving her cool boiled water in between feeds. The midwife told me to do this.

If your worried call ur midwife (if you still have one if not ur health visitor).
