Issue: Defining diarrhoea in infants under six months

There are practical considerations in diagnosing diarrhoea in infants under six months. The frequent stools of an exclusively breastfed infant are not the same (but may be interpreted as such) as diarrhoea. Staff often ask someone else to have a look to confirm stool as “normal”. Also, in transition stages, if older infants start on porridge, there may be an alteration in bowel habit which again may be interpreted as abnormal, rather than as a normal reaction and adaptation to a change in diet.
