My son is 9 months old and has been in and out of the hospital since he was born. His doctor always says its gostroenteritis. This past week he has had diarrhea that has no substance at all (like water), and no interest to eat very much and very fussy. I have statred lying him across my lap and rubbing his stomach. He seems to like it but not for very long. What could be the problem with him?

Not sure about what has been causing it in the past, but sometimes a constipated baby will pass very wet stool (the only thing that can make it past). That also could go along with him not wanting to eat. Or maybe he has a stomach bug? I would take him in and if you are finding that your current pedi is not giving you helpful answers, go elsewhere or request to see a specialist.
