Mild diarreha is a usual symptom of teething. It is actually caused by swallowing large amounts of saliva due to the excessive drooling during teething. Is your kid drooling a lot ?

But there is also a chance that it is just a coincidence and diarrhea is caused by some other problem. Thus I think it is safer to pay a visit to your paediatrician.
