My boy has had diarrhea/loose stool all week long. At first, I was putting it off to the fact that I fed him pears( known for their laxative properties) for 3 days straight. I wasn’t trying to make him go, I was just trying to get him to eat. And he LOVES pears. Amazingly, he decided this week that eating again is a good idea. I gave him his own spoon, and that seems to satisfy him. (Thanks to all who gave me that brilliant piece of advice). Also, I’ve started giving him steamed veggies( we had carrots today) and cut up soft fruits( banana). And he finally decided that the yogurt melts were interesting enough to taste. He’s not exactly eating everything, but he’s not throwing it to the floor either. He actually picks it up and puts it up to his mouth, and in his mouth. Now, if I could just get him to chew and swallow consistently……..
But anyway, back to the diarrhea. I’m getting kind of worried. It seems to be better today. He only went 4 times. But that’s FOUR times! And it’s still loose/runny. But as usual, he seems just fine. No ill effects. He’s still drinking lots of milk, and eating. I’m going to call the pediatrician today I guess( I always feel a reluctance to call. I wonder if that has anything to do with me being a nurse?…….) and get advice on what they think. But in the meantime mommies(and any daddies too) any advice for this cutie pie?
