Any ideas... she hasn't got an appetite either, well not for proper food.

DD has this after a stomach bug. Mentioned it to GP the first time it happened and she said it was just her digestion getting back to normal. Should return to normal shades after a week or so.

Could her loss of appetite have been due to a bug?

how much milk does she have?

ds had a similar problem and little appetite down to a milk problem. he was having too much milk, which inhibited iron absorption.

So cut out all milk, except occasional yoghurt, custard, ice cream 9which him seems to crave constantly)
hopefully getting enough calcium from good mixed diet and an addiction to peanut butter.

Poo back to normal, if he has milk in excess, poo goes back to magnolia.

Well, thanks I'm going to cut out milk and she has had a sickness bug.

Thanks ladies smile
