Diarrhoea in Kids – I am a mother of a 6 year old daughter, a hands-on-mommy who has seen her growing very closely. I often call parenting as ‘on-the-job’ training, as you never know when an escalation reaches you from which direction.
Child health, a topic on which I can talk all day long. As a mother, I have learned from experience that the smallest itch could be dangerous if not reported immediately. Or the worst fear of upset tummy could be handled easily at home by an expert probiotic.

What is Diarrhoea and its symptoms in children?
Diarrhoea is the most common disease in the summers. Diarrhoea is wobbly bowel movements (3 or more per day). Most kids have diarrhoea from time to time. It usually doesn’t last long and often gets better on its own, or with the help of probiotics. There could be many reasons to get diarrhoea, but most common is viral diarrhoea.
Some Facts about Diarrhoea –
- Diarrhoea could be seasonal, Summer (March to May). Winter (September to January).
- The occurrence of diarrhoea cases is at peak during summers.
- Bacteria and Virus are the two most common causes of diarrhoea.
Common Symptoms of diarrhoea are –

How to Treat common Diarrhoea in Kids –
I have seen mothers getting worried and stressed about ‘How to stop diarrhoea in kids fast?’ But worrying won’t help us in any way. The best way to treat diarrhoea is by having a clean, safe, and healthy lifestyle. Eat clean and well-cooked food, wash hands before and after every meal. Use hand sanitizers regularly, drink plenty fluids especially in summers. Avoid street-side food vendors, and keep a note of timely vaccination in kids.
Mommy and Kid’s Date with Enterogermina
We (I and daughter) have recently been a part of an insightful and fun-filled day with Enterogermina #HappyTummiesMeet. The name which is embedded in every mother’s mind, a probiotic which helps manage diarrhoea in children.
Paediatrician’s No.1 choice and a very effective probiotic which helps manage diarrhoea by controlling the bad bacteria in the intestines and making tummies happy. During the event, we learned how to diagnose early signs of diarrhoea from the expert speaker Dr.Zinal. She also explained kids the easy ways to keep away from bad bacteria by maintaining healthy personal hygiene. The best way to teach kids how to differentiate between good and bad is simply by involving them in the act.
My daughter learned the easy ways of identifying healthy food by some fun D-I-Y activities at the event. The curious minds just didn’t stop there, they also learned how diarrhoea could lead to troubled tummies and bad times. Hence, by learning the jingle of – ‘healthy tummies ko bolo haan, Enterogermina’.

As I mentioned in the beginning, motherhood transformed me into a semi-ninja by now. I know the early signs of trouble and make sure to keep things handy to combat it before it goes big bad ugly. So, for #happytummies it is always Enterogermina.
