Child Smearing Feces
My 2 month old baby is having watery stool with lots of farts and sour smell. Since sunday morning but only 3 big stools and lots of smear kind.
Infant diarrhea: It sounds like your infant may have gastroenteritis, an intestinal infection. Most cases are viral, but, if there is blood in the stool, this could indicate either a bacterial infection or a milk protein allergy. Continued watery stools can quickly lead to dehydration in infants. You should definitely have the baby seen by the pediatrician as soon as possible.
Wat causes my child to eat feces? It has become a daily thing. Also eats:rocks, hair, flour, dirt, vaseline, books, basically anything she can but mainly poo
Age? See doc: Pica- abnormal appetite for non foods, including dirt, corn starch, ice chips, etc. Can be a sign of iron deficirncy ; lots of causes: bad diet, parasites like hookworm, intestinal disorders like celiac sprue and inflammatory bowel disease; menstrual losses; other; toxicity from lead. Rare metabolic diseases can do it. Psychological diseases can as well. Much depends on age, living conditions. Cmd.See 1 more doctor answer

Options: In early infancy, bananas, applesauce & cereals are prime constipating agents. Lowering amount of intake can help reduce the effect. The fruit juices like apple, peach, prune, pear will loosen stools. Any change takes 3-4 days to show benefit.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: You can get many different stool colors with Rotavirus. One more common color, in my experience, has been a distinct "technicolor green". As it progresses you can see clear watery stools, yellow stools, and finally brown. With the advent of the vaccine we hardly ever see Rotavirus these days.
Varies: The color depends on diet and bile output during the illness. I have seen blue poop from blue Popsicles or Gatorade. They can be almost clear mucous to brownish water, but very frequently are a beige/creamy white. The hallmark is the horrible smell that goes along with rotavirus - I can walk in a room and tell a baby in there has the illness.
Hello I have a question about breastfeeding exclusively baby feces (4 months).It seems to me a little snotty and I want to know if it's normal?
Most Likely Normal: You are breastfeeding, "baby feces a little snotty". Your baby's age & medical history is unknown. Breast fed baby stools vary however colors range from green, brown, to yellow. Consistency varies between seedy to mushy. It is not unusual to see stringy mucous strands. If your baby is comfortable, has a good appetite & has good weight gain then no action is needed.

My child is 6 nonths. I ntriduced him baby food for the firat time. Apple n manfo flavour. He passed hard stool then. Is it normal?
Constipated infant: You child may be constipated because of the apple you are giving him. Apple contains pectin which is a solidifying agent. Change to another fruit such as apricots or peaches.
Perhaps...: Enemas are almost never used in my pediatric practice, so the 1st concern is what triggered the need for an enema? I would never recommend an enema for your child unless specifically ordered by your pediatrician. The type of enema used may have caused the mucous--or perhaps this mucous was due to the irritant effect of whatever made the use of an enema necessary. If bloody, call your doctor now.

Removal: Check this out with your local surgeon as it seems removal is the only answer. Further questions can be obtained at the CDC, or center for disease control. All the best. This is a difficult disease.
My child 5 years old had blood on her stool, she has problem of constipation is it something to worry about?
Yes: Blood on the stool and chronic constipation is always something to worry about, but not anything to panic about. The blood is likely due to either a small hemorrhoid or a fissure that tore and has caused some minor bleeding with the passing of stool. You need to be much more aggressive with treatment of her constipation. Much more fiber in diet, increase water intake and consider med like Miralax (polyethylene glycol).
