Hi, you need to make any change a very gradual one, and as Hissy said, be sure the kitten is not getting dehydrated. I am not, however, a fan of Iams brand kitten or cat foods, there are much better options out there!
Consider a "for all lifestages brand" which includes Felidae, or kitten formula by Nutro Natural Choice Complete Care...for a less expensive but very solid food, consider Petsmart's own brand - Authority (I am currently using their kitten formula with my stray "teen")
It also never hurts unless you are positive she is clear of all parasites, to take a stool sample in (even if it's of the diarhea) to the vets for them to check.
