I think ds has got diarrhoea. He normally poos once every three days, but since Thursday it's more like once every 2-3 hours or more (he's filled three nappies in the last 1.5hrs). Also it's turned from yellow to green and lumpy.
On yop of thar he's suddenly turned into a screamer, is irritable and clingy, won't nap and won't sleep at night.
He had his jabs on Tuesday, is this all linked? Is there anything I can/should do?
He's so miserable and I'm wavering between worried, miserable and out-of-my-mind <not getting any sleep >
We just have grabadoc here. Last time I called them they told me just to take him to a&e and said they don't come out.
He bfeeding regularly and staying on for a while. When I gave him formula yesterday he got through 200 ml in an hour, then another 150ml an hour or so after that. Then a big bf. So based on that he's taking a lot.
Is it bright green? He could be having a growth spurt - if he feeds very frequently he might end up with a lot of hind milk. This can lead to lots of enzymes being used to digest it which in turn can cause a bit of pain (hence grumpiness) and the green poo. He then feeds more and more because he isnt getting the energy dense milk.
HOWEVER if you are worried I suggest you take him to see a doctor.
Does he look dehydrated? What is his fontanelle like? What is his skin like? Springy? Is he having wet nappies as well?
I would think a baby with diarrhoea would be iller if that makes sense. I would think diarrhoea (or however you spell it!) would also be more watery.
again however I am not a doctor and if you are worried you may want to see someone.
