HI there!

If your baby is still eating well and active, then it is best to have your vet check her for intestinal parasites and possibly protozoa.

Until then, give her Pepto Bismol at 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of her weight given every 8 hrs. If, after a day, there is no change, have your vet examine her.

Good Luck!
