My 5 month old has had diarrhea for 3 weeks. Is that typical? She is exclusively breastfed; no solids yet, but has been taking probiotics for the past week. It is much MUCH better than it was and she never had a fever, just lots and LOTS of poop.
Long story short, now that only about 1/2 her diapers are poopy, they are looking a lot like light green grass and today we also had some pink streaking. We have a well visit scheduled for next week, but I called today after the pink streaks and they said we should come in this week since it's a long weekend. I guess my concerns are:
1. Is he going to try and put her on antibiotics???
2. 2 doctor visits in 2 weeks seem like a lot of unnecessary exposure to sickness
3. They still want us to come in next week for the well visit...even though we're not vaccinating
4. Is there a point to going in? Could this be serious?
