Hi Moch Marsen,
At that age, the child is said to have diarrhea or loose stools if the frequency of bowel movements is more than 4 times a day or the frequency is less than 4 times but the consistency of the stool is very liquid.
Diarrhea can be caused by a viral infection, bacterial or parasitic contamination of food, certain food allergies or food poisoning.
You should re-evaluate the food or drink that your child has just consumed, and pay attention to the hygiene of the food and the surrounding environment.
The sound of the stomach you mean is caused by increased bowel movements, so the child will defecate more often.
What you need to pay attention to when your child has diarrhea include:
whether the child's stool contains blood, mucus or has a fishy smell, whether the child becomes lazy to eat or drink, whether the child becomes difficult to sweat, or other signs that the child is dehydrated such as weakness, and dry skin. If the child has any of the above signs, see a doctor immediately for further examination and for appropriate treatment.
What you can do now is:
keep the environment clean. Wash your child's hands, trim his nails when they are long, and clean toys or objects around your child frequently. Overcome the child's habit of frequently putting foreign objects in the mouth. wash your hands or the person who often looks after your child every time they come out of the toilet, when preparing food and when giving food, pay attention to the food your child eats, both in terms of cleanliness and the ingredients served, give drink or soupy food as often as possible to prevent dehydration in children. such a child, hopefully it will be useful
