My almost 7yo son was wanting to spend all his time on the computer, and what we ended up doing is no screen time before lunch, and then a 2-hour per-day limit on any form of screen time. We use a timer, and the kids can use it anytime they want between lunch and dinner. It's helping the kids (I also have a 2.5 and a 4.5 yo) learn about time (how many minutes in an hour, for example, lol), things like that. And after a few days of complaining, they've adjusted very well...

H/D here as well!
OMG, I haven't posted here in forever! *waves*
Thanks, that is reassuring. The moms over in the breastfeeding forum think it might be the strawberries I've been eating, so I will do a little experimenting there to test that theory. She has been drooling and chewing a lot, so it could be teething too. I hesitate to think it's a bug, just because no one else around here is having similar symptoms. ETA: But I cloth diaper her, so tossing them isn't a very cost-effective option!
Thank you!
For those who are thinking it's a bug: do you know if it's common for something like this to go away for a week and then come back again?
You know, I hadn't been able to think of anything unusual in my diet, but now that you mention it, I had strawberries yesterday, and I think we had a bunch a week or two ago as well. That's a good thought!
I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what's going on here. My 5-month-old, exclusively breastfed daughter has had normal breastmilk-poop ever since she was born. A week or two ago, she had a several-day bout of watery and/or mucousy stools. They were more frequent than normal, dark-greenish, and foul smelling. She seemed uncomfortable or unhappy for the first day, but after that she seemed to feel fine. I assumed she was fighting off some type of stomach bug, but...
