Diarrhea occurs when bowel movements are frequent, loose, and watery. This is particularly common when a gastrointestinal infection is present. Even in children, bowel movement usually returns to normal after a few days. However, if it does not, it is referred to as toddler diarrhea and it can cause as many as 10 bowel movements per day with watery stools.
