Any response would be great..I do daycare and this is what happened last friday when she came. Ive never known any kids to have that many bowel movements like that in one day especially since she dont really eat much when she comes here

Hi there -

Nine times seems like quite a lot. Is it diarrhea? Any other symptoms? Is she complaining of stomach pain?

Do her parents say this is usual for her?
