Baby diarrhea 2w ago & now vomiting. Doc said viral but husband & I didn't get sick & I have a weak immune system. She ate oatmeal both times. Allerg?

Possible: Viral infection usually does not last for more than a week. Your hunch may well be right and the lst thing you should consider would be to keep him off oatmeal (and milk added to the oatmeal). See an allergist if problem persists and be sure to keep the baby hydrated well. (liquid with electrolytes). ...Read more

Could tissue salts (for teething) give a baby diarrhea? Baby has had lots of bowel movements for 3 days prior but as of today diarrhea and tummy pain.

Yes: I would not recommend these types of homeopathic treatments for babies. They are not studied in children and can have side effects. There is very little scientific evidence that they have the benefits they claim and they are not regulated by the FDA (or similar agencies). For teething, use a teething ring, frozen wet cloth to chew on, or Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. ...Read more

I breastfed for 6 wks, then soy formula until he was 3 months. Now he is on reg infant formula and has diarrhea. Is he ok? Was it bad to switch?

Ok relative to what?: If the diarrhea is not a big volume its unlikely to hurt baby. Are things like juices or foods really to blame for the runs instead? While your child may not have a true cow milk allergy or intolerance, something in the product may not agree with him. Soy is an adequate formula for the first yr so unless u are cool with the runs, i'd go back to soy. ...Read more
