Kittens might have a tummy ache

Hey,

I recently gave a home to two 6 week old kittens (brother and sister). I've had them for 3 days now and it took them half a day to get adjusted but they seemed to settle in after that.

Every morning I cuddle with them and play with them and at night I play with them when I come home (for the past 2 days). I came home and I think my mother accidentally fed them spoiled milk (we dont use milk that often in my house).

The male (Basha)'s poop was leaning towards diarrhea while they were both restless and meowing all day while I was out. I think they may have an upset stomach. What can I give them to help them?

I don't have a vet or anything and I know it can get expensive so I wanted to know if I'm overreacting or maybe I should worry. Also what are the steps I can take before I think about a vet?

it maybe they are just adjusting to there new home, and food, are you feeding them the same food that the person who had them before was feeding them ?you can never to over react when it comes to your fur babies, its better to be safe then sorry.

:)

I am feeding the same exact food except for the milk. The little one (Pumpkin) is the runt of the litter so she can't deal with the solid food yet I don't think. I don't know how to get her to get off of the milk and start eating kitty food. Any suggestions?

Also is there any specific sign that I should beware of?

They do seem ok today and not as fussy as last night...
