Holy crap. Literally.

Baby + diarrhea = suckdom.

I'm literally changing a diaper every 15-20 minutes. (and no, it's not a lot, but I'm trying to keep him poor bum dry as I can, so the moment any, um, arrives, I change and lather him with cream.)

It's horrible in the stench department too. I remember there is some virus that causes it, but I don't really think that's it, since he's perfectly fine in every other way. But then again, he is my angel of a baby, so maybe he's just this well natured. (remember, I didn't know he had a double ear infection either!)

I'll have him checked out tomorrow at the pedi appointment for Miss Allison, which today, by the way, is her 4th BIRTHDAY! Yay! Happy Birthday. Sorry your birthday announcement was preceded about your brother's butt issues.

I'm so bloody tired.

Oh shitty (LOL, sorry could not help myself) haha!

So I remember the last time the chickster had dirreah, it leaked onto our shirts and we were at the hospital so we didn't have any new ones. We sat in those dirty shirts for almost a day!

He sounds like Chicken in the angel dept so he probably is sick. Luckily he will get over it soon and you will get sleep again :)

Rotavirus.

Andrew had it this past March and OMG, stinkage. Major stinkage, like the worst I've ever smelled! I hope it doens't last long--it's kind of persistent, if that's what it is.

Happy birthday Allison!!

Diarrhea SUCKS for anyone, and doing it in diapers makes it that much more miserable. So sorry.. I hope Karl's hiney is better soon. And keep that baby hydrated!

Jillian had Rotavirus in February and then she had inexplicable diarrhea for 3 weeks in April/May. Both times she had no other symptoms and acted fine. But oh God was the diaper rash horrid. We took to letting her lie around naked (but on top of a towel of course). Ultimately the rash was yeast and only lotrimin worked.

Good luck! And a big happy birthday to Allison!

And for the poops? We had that a few months back. NO other symptoms put the poop. Weird.

Ugh. Is it the rotavirus? I remember last winter, J had the runs, and woke up in the morning with his fleece jammies literally FILLED to the armpits with poo.
