It depends on what’s normal for your child:
- For babies, diarrhoea means that bowel movements are more runny or watery than normal, or happening more often than normal. Your child might have twice as many bowel movements as he or she usually has. (In babies, normal stool can be yellow, green, or brown. They can also have things that look like seeds in them.)
- Older children with diarrhoea will have 3 or more runny bowel movements in a day.
