MY DD is 17 weeks today. She started having a watery diarrhea yesterday morning and she would not all day long - 18 ounces versus the 26-30 she normally eats. She slept great last night and had a watery BM at 4 am. She ate maybe 3 ounces at 4 am then this morning does not want any food again! No fever and she seems happy and lively. Should we just wait this out or call the doctor??

I'm having a similar problem. My 13-month dd has had diarrhea for the past two days. She doesn't seem feverish and is behaving and eating normally. However the frequent poops are irritating her behind so although I try to change her immediately after the poops happen, she cries when I clean her because her little behind is so sore. I don't know if the diarrhea was caused by something she's eating or if it's stress (I'm trying to Ferber her into sleeping through the night).

I spoke to the nurse today. I had stopped her reflux meds about 10 days ago and we think this might be the culprit, so she has burning in her throat and her backside. I read the worst problem for baby is diaper rash, so try to wash with water and use the diaper cream during this time. Nurse advised that if she has 4 wet diapers per day, just ride this out. She sure is sleeping alot today!
