Sorry this is gross but wanted some advice. Just latley ds's poos have had this oily looking bright orange liquid in them kinda like sweet and sour sauce (sorry again) but its not nly when he poos sometimes i change him when hes wet and his nappys stained with the same orange stuff round the bottom, i know its not his wee but its not normal for him anyone know whats going on???
hes on dairy free formula dont know if this makes any difference?
they smell alot worse and this orange stuff soaks right trough his nappy.
heres the gross bit apologise in advance!
when he passes wind or has his legs up when he has no nappy on this orange stuff seems to dribble from his bottom yuck i know!
can anyone help???
Has he eaten something new recently? also, is he mobile? Has he been out in the garden or park or something lately? I find mine sometimes pick up little bugs from the dirt in the garden etc which give them a little looseness without actually making them ill IYSWIM.
ds gets wierd nappies usually dependant on what he eats. If I were you write down EVERYTHING he has had to eat and drink and have a good lok at anything that might be orangy or red.
I know that it sounds daft - but if ds has carrot his nappies are orange.
The fact that it is dribbling out of his bottom though does sound like he has an upset tummy. Perhaps take him to the doctor as well (not that I would be very worried - not meaning to worry you). Is he drinking enough water?
he hasnt had anything unusal and has been having carrott for ages and never had this before. hes not moblie but often sits on the carpet so maybe hes eaten somethng without me knowing.
he doesnt drink alot but has has 5 bottles a day and a couple of bottles of juice a day dont now if this is enough. will the health visitor be able to advise me?
its not the colour thats wierd its just it look oily like when you get oil in water, its kind of seperated. its hard to explain.
your health visitor will love you! Blame it on lonelymum!! hehe
I think that he drinks a fair amount. The oil thing is strange! Sounds really wierd, there must be a logical explanation. Think that you are doing the right thing telling your hv. good luck - let us know what she says! I am intrigued
