DS' very smelly farts!

DS (2.10) poos normally about 2 or 3 times a day and doesn't struggle to go, soft but formed etc. but in the past few days has been doing really smelly farts - even the lady at nursery commented that they kept thinking someone had pooed their pants but it was just DS' farts!

If everything else appears fine is there any reason why this could be?

Does he have any issues with milk? Only I'm cows milk protein intolerant and have been known to have a few issues in this department if I've had anything with dairy in blush[grin

He doesn't have any dairy issues that I'm aware of. He's always had cow's milk and hasn't been having any more of it recently.

He did a particularly smelly one in the queue on Costa today, which was pretty embarrassing confused

dc had smelly farts when a bug is going round. if it goes away after a few days I woudn't worry (even if it's unpleasant).

He has actually come down with a high temperature today - I wonder if he is fighting a bug?

Could be food intolerances. DS used to do terrible farts, until we found his food intolerances, which are gluten, eggs and dairy. he also had terrible tummy ache, every day.

Now we have all but cut those out of his diet, things are much better for him.
