If you can get the baby poop to the lab within 2 hours, most of the time you won't even have to go to a doctor's office. Just call the office, they call the hospital lab, you deliver a tupperware container of poop and walk out. They can screen for occult blood counts, virus, etc and you don't have to wait forever with all of the sick people...
How is he doing today?
|He has only gained 2 oz in the last 5 days, and I am beginning to panic. Did your child have foamy poops the whole time up until now?
When DD was a newborn, and I ate lots of root veggies and cabbage-type food, she got really foamy poops and bubbles-- with curds... that shot up her back (cloth dipes, but no EC
And 2 oz in 5 days isn't bad, taking into account he could have been full (milk, poop, pee, or a combo) the first weighing. 4 oz in 7 days is "normal"
so... to above posters: how are they acting/reacting to stimuli? Is the soft spot okay? Lips chapped? Lots of urine? 3-6 small poops a day (even if they are weird)?
Are you consuming a lot of caffine? Cabbage? Dairy? Possible allergens?
