contents of a nappy- what to do, what to do (don't read this if you don't like reading about pooh)
My 9mo may have a tummy bug, I think. Not sure, and not sure whether I should be worried.
He has gone from one daily pooh, fairly solid, nice colour to 3/4 a day VERY smelly (I mean rank(!) and I am not at all squeamish about these things) and sludgy, ranging in shade from cream to green to yellow to brown. His poor little bottom has also got very sore which has never happened before.
He is cheerful in himself, but seems very attached to me and my breast. Will not drink much water and his usually wet nappies seem quite dry to me.
He is on solids, no formula, but I haven't changed his diet or anything. We have, however, just been on holiday, and he was in the pool every day so may have picked something up.
Thanks guys- I did wonder about teething, Ruby, he seems to continually be a bit toothy! He is on numbers 5 and 6 and they are taking AGES and seem to be causing him quite a lot of bother.
Some of them are very big, Eli- but if I haven't changed his diet, is it possible for it to be intolerance? Can it suddenly begin like that or would I have noticed something sooner? He's been like it for about 4 days already.
