    Default 8.5mth old Diahorrea

    Nice title I admit, gross.

    Bub has smelly green, bitty Diahorrea.

    Green I assume from formula, which he's been on since 7mths. He's only BF overnight.

    The bitty-ness looks like curdled milk though.
    And it's smelly.
    He's had it for about 1.5 days, he's not dehydrated and happy to eat and drink. He's not upset at all.

    He could be teething but I don't see new teeth cutting over the next few days.

    He's started to eat our family dinners, but nothing really new, as in he's eaten lamb before, eaten broccoli before etc

    Should I be worried?

    I think as long as he's hydrated I wouldn't be overly concerned. How often is it occurring? Could be a slight bug or a reaction to newish formula or food. Either way it should pass in a day or two. If it hangs around for a long time or he stops drinking then id take him to the doc, but otherwise I wouldn't bother. (Just my opinion of course!)

    Both my kids poos became very acidic smelling, runny and burnt their little bottoms when teeth were moving around. By the time I found a tooth they were normal again, and I now get the lightbulb moment of "Ahhhh that explains last weeks nappies"
    So it could well be teething, hope little one is ok

    Same here too!

    If he's happy and is staying hydrated, I wouldn't be too fussed about it.

    I wouldn't be too concerned either as long as he is drinking well so not getting dehydrated. Hopefully it passes soon!

    Thanks all

    He's still Pooey but not upset.

    I'll just keep an eye on it.

    My LO had ongoing diarrhoea for close to a week but was otherwise fine in terms of his eating and drinking. Took him to the dr and he said what PPs have said - as long as he is not dehydrated, there's nothing much that can be done. We did get stool cultures only because we were heading overseas and wanted to rule infection out before hand - came back negative as expected and his diarrhoea settled down the very next day that we got the results.

    Hope it all settles down soon!
