Why Do Babies Get Diarrhea When Teething
Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea. Loose stool can be caused by infections, certain foods or drinks, ...Read more

My 5 month old daughter has had some loose stools. No fever, eating normally, and active. She has a red bottom, relieved with diaper cream. Could it be teething?
I can be hard to determine the exact cause of an infants symptoms... It might be related to teething or it might be a cold. Please monitor your child closely and give palliative care:
1. Cold compresses
2. Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) per the label's directions.
3. Maintain hydration, plain water is ok.
4. Call your pediatrician if the fever increases or persists for more than 3 days. ...Read more

Bloody bowel movements are never a normal event.
The color of the blood sometimes gives you clues from where the blood comes from, the brighter the closer to the rectum and colon, the darker the higher in the g.I tract. It can be anything from a fissure in the anal opening due to hard stools, an infection, if your child has been in antibiotics, an allergy to milk, to bowel problems. Dr asap. ...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
My babies burp smell like rotten egg he is vomitting and has diarrhea but he has no fever and he is only 6 months old?
GASTROENTERITIS...: Give him sips of pedialyte for each diarrhea and vomiting. Continue, if breast feeding, if on formula, make it 2/3rd diluted, extra fluid, rice cereal, some yogurt, don't force solid food. Make sure he pees at least 4-6 times/day. If any worsening, check with his pediatrician. ...Read more

I took clindamycin for 2days, my 4m baby and I got diarrhea but ER says 2days is not long enough to get c diff and her lbm will go away. Is this true?
Clindamycin: While c.Diff is always a concern with any broad spectrum antibiotic, Clindamycin certainly has been implicated as being responsible for c.Diff. However, Clindamycin can cause diarrhea on it's own, not related to a c.Diff infection. Clindamycin can cause a colitis but not often after only 2 days. If the drug is stopped, stay hydrated and inform your doctor. In most cases the diarrhea should subs. ...Read more
Probably yes: A child who is exposed to diarrhea at daycare, will probably get sick because kids at daycare tend to pass germs to one another every day. If the child has protection against the diarrhea, either from having a vaccine (against that exact germ), or from having had the diarrhea illness (caused by the same exact germ) in the past, then the child may get just a mild illness or no illness at all. ...Read more
Can my child still get the rotovirus even if vaccinated last winter (oral vax). Both of my twins (18mth) have diarrhea, but otherwise are ok.?
Much less likely: Three out of four children who had rotavirus vaccine won't have any symptoms at all if they come in contact with the infection; more importantly, almost no immunized child will become significantly ill with it. Keep in mind that rotavirus is only one cause of infectious diarrhea, so perhaps your twins have diarrhea from another cause. I hope they get better quickly! ...Read more

Currently 5.5 Weeks pregnant and was up most the night with diarrhea and nausea. Husband also has. Was wondering if my baby is at risk? Should I be trying to get an ultrasound to confirm everything is ok?
No: Whenever someone in your house is sick there's always a chance your baby may get sick too. But whether it's you, dad or a sibling who's sick, the best thing you can do to protect your baby is breastfeed. After exposure to a virus your body will make proteins that fight the virus. Those proteins pass into your breastmilk and protect your baby. So wash your hands well and keep on breastfeeding. ...Read more
My 8 week old baby is in the hospital with RSV and they have her on strictly pedialyte. She started to get diarrhea after drinking it, is this ok?
I'm 35 weeks 4 days and I'm having diarrhea that will not go away, my stomach is always cramping from it. After I eat I get sick. Is that bad for baby?
Diarrhea can lead to dehydration and preterm contractions, which can be harmful if it results in early delivery. You can take immodium ad and the generic version of it, kaopectate is also fine to take as is pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate). Treat the diarrhea and hydrate as best you can.
However, your OB doc likely has an answering service. Call them, they may want to IV hydrate you. ...Read more
