my 6 week old is having tiny squirts/skidmarks of watery poop all the time too. we are going through tons of cloth diapers, though i do the same thing someone previously mentioned about folding the prefolds different ways so the poop isnt constantly touching his skin. he has a red ring around his anus and ive read this could signal a dairy allergy ... anyone know how accurate that is? i have eliminated almost all dairy, just use a tiny bit of butter in baking, but nothing else. i find he has much worse gas that appears painful when i eat dairy. even with what ive eliminated, he still has the red ring and it is actually worse than before.
we parttime EC too, but his signals/timing is changing, plus we've been out of the house the last 2 days so hes spent more time in a diaper, and now he has a rash with the red ring. it is hard to keep him dry because of the frequent poop squirts, but we spend a lot of time with a naked butt. though i always have to have a cloth diaper on my lap because of the poop squirts and get poop dribbled on me often. but i believe that a naked butt will heal faster so i let him hang out that way everyday for atleast an hour.
they are seriously like little drops of poop seemingly all the time. i feel like it is normal, but it is certainly annoying. i dont understand it. i am going to talk to my midwife about it this week and show her his bottom. she saw it a couple weeks ago and said it was totally normal for him to poop like this, but i wanna make sure again. it is reassuring to hear that this is/has gone on for other people.
i am using a homeade salve of plantain and comfrey and olive oil on his bum.
