Ds had meningitis at 7 weeks old. This was treated witha selection of ABs and 2 weeks in hospital. During this time he fed as normal but his poo was quite explosive andat times sore.he had some tested but nothing came back.

He's now 11 weeks and its still explosive (grumpy fir 10-15 mins before) although the consistency is fairly normal. It also smells eggy.

I've read about the smells being linked to intolerances but obviously in his case it could be linked to his stomach being out of kilter still.

Wondering if it could be linked/helped by my diet. Any suggestions?

Ds2 had eggy smelling poo for the first 3 or 4 weeks of his life.

He was exposed to antibiotics from day 8-18 via me (We were readmitted and I was on 2 fairly strong abs via IV while continuing to bf ds2) but his poo was eggy before that.

I also read about the intolerance link when I was looking into causes, but he's 7 weeks now and poo smells like normal bf poo with no change in my diet, so for us it was obviously just one of those things.

DD's poo was explosive to say the least! Was like that for at least 3 months. Didn't smell eggy though, more like peanuts? Or baking?

Habhann- this?
Interesting reference to c-section babies having lower quantities of bacteria.
