Default goat kid diarrhea

I've had 5 kids born in the last 2 days. One has really runny yellow poop. Should I give her anything or will it clear up on its own?

are these bottle babies or dam raised...real runny yellow poop could mean milk scours...

I had twins last season who could not be fed by mom..her milk was too rich..they stayed with milk scours..ended up bottle feeding them : )

If its just loose...like thick pudding..give a day to see if it clears up
If its very watery .like water..then pull from mom for 12 hours give electros with a pinch of baking soda...
how big is the baby.?? breed?? weight??

The other kid doesn't have diarrhea. Its real runny but I think it might be clearing up. The kid that had it has been nursing a lot more than the other. Can I give her kaopectate if it isn't cleared up by in the morning?
