Does apple juice make diarrhea worse?


It's all I've been giving my son to drink since he's been sick. Of course I've been watering it down. I thought it would be better than giving him milk but I've been told that apple juice is actually worse to give him?! What should I give him to drink? He does not like water or pedialyte.

Don't know as far as what else to give him, but yes, apple juice could make it worse. Fruits are natural laxatives, of a sort, and apple juice is right up there around prune juice for making you poop.

My DD had really bad constipation and one of the things we were recommended to give her was apple juice, so it does have a laxative effect. Maybe see if he would have a weak cup of tea as an alternative? You could give a fruity tea or just a regular one..??

Its fruit and we all know what fruit does.

I would just give him water.

Apple juice will probably be making it worse.
I give my LO lots of apple/orange juice when she's constipated so I'm guessing it wouldn't help diarrhea at all
Hope your LO feels better

Yup, and pear juice. Our ped always told us to give our DD warmed pear or apple juice to loosen her up, works a charm.

Get liquid in to him any way you can, ice lollies, lucozade, gateraid, that will replace lost salts thru the runs and tastes a bit better than plain water.

It help bind hum up a bit try offering banana, its gentle on the tummy and will help stop the runs.
