Diarrhea is still a world health problem, especially in developing countries, diarrhea is the number one cause of death among toddlers throughout the world every year. Trend Evidence Based Practice (EBP) is an alternative and new method for providing care. Diarrhea massage is a touch to the baby's body that is given to treat diarrhea and reduce the frequency of defecation, because massage can improve nerves and the process of absorbing food. The type of research carried out was Quasi experimental with the one group pretest posttest method. Sampling in this study used a non-random sampling technique and purposive sampling.
