My 8 month ds appears to have the trots, at first they were mucousy but now seem thicker but its about 5 a day - anyone any tips...., should i just continue with his normal diet or does anyone have a tip - when my dd has it we do the brat thing - banana, rice, apple and toast - ok for my ds or not? It must be a bug as im a bit the same too but obv i can pop a few imodium and / or starve myself. He is so whiney - poor mite. Been like it since friday but eating and drinking normally just moaning - suspect teeth iminent also so im in for a rough couple of days

Oh sorry I misunderstood I thought you meant your 8 month ds had trots and may be teething, I missed the bit about you also feeling unwell.

As for saying may turn into months.....teethinhg is (very obvuiously) long process.

Lets hope its just a 24 some-thing for you both

I should call your HV if you are concerned about his diet whilst he has the trots.

there is some nasty bugs about but remember when my ds had the trots at that age he had them for over a month ended up having to do a stool sample yuk turned out he just had a virus and just had to wait for it to pass

yes i recall my dd having them and despite going to gp on day 5,10 and 20 it was just a case of riding it out but she was a toot older. Hes having a good sleep now. Will give HV a buzz as hes supposed to behaving a deelopment check today anyway which wont happen....
