oh no. our family just got over having rotaviurs and the symptoms seem pretty similar. i'd definately ask about that. if that's it, there isn't much they can do except for let it run it's course, but you do have to be very careful about making sure ds stays well hydrated. i sincerely hope it isn't rotavirus because it is awful. there is a thread somewhere that i started when we started getting sick. i'll try to find it and bump it for you.

i found it... it's called really runny white poo... i will say that her poop was only that color once... the rest of the time it was a very light green color and smelled like death. dh kept calling her the toxic avenger.

got this from: w w w.rotateq.com/what-is-rotavirus.html Rotavirus Is Highly Contagious Rotavirus can cause high fever, multiple episodes of vomiting and diarrhea, and can quickly lead to dehydration (loss of body fluids). • Rotavirus can be mild, moderate, or severe—it can be difficult to predict which infected children will have severe cases. • A severe case of rotavirus could send your child to the emergency room or your child may be hospitalized. • Rotavirus infections occur mostly during the winter, but they may happen at any time of the year. • Rotavirus is usually spread through contaminated hands or objects, and can remain on surfaces for a long time. • Soaps can't kill rotavirus, and most disinfectants don't work.

FYI - Dr Greene's website said hand sanitizers are fairly effective at killing it. I really dried my hands out but I used it before and after everytime I touched LO. I started using it 5-6 times a day on LO's hands and feet (since he is grabbing them now) and I used clorox clean up on everything. Doornobs, changing tables, countertops, toliets, anything that was a hard surface got cloroxed. You do not get immuned to it once you get it, so you can get it again and again if you get reinfected with the virus. So treat that poo like toxic waste!

Deirdra... just so you know.. Nutramigen is a cows milk based formula. If your truely has a cow's milk protein allergy (instead of an intolerance) he wont be able to eat the nutramigen without it causing some diarhea. My dd has a "cows milk protein intolerance" or a "Non-IGE milk allergy". If the diarhea is persisting, and he doesnt seem to be sick.. maybe its the formula. You might need to try something soy based, or something like Allimentum. Just a heads up *INCASE* it isnt the flu, and is really something else. Cheers!

PS- Noone told me that Nutramigen was a cows milk based until we saw an allergist. It is "predigested" using different enzymes.. but its still cows milk. Funny how they put "for babies with cows milk allergy" on the label...
