Hi,

DS is 19 months and has been eating solids since he has been a year old. He is still nursing. His stools have been daily, consistant and solid. For the past week his stools look like they used to look when he was solely breastfeeding (yellow and loose and more frequent).

Should I be concerned about this? IS this normal?

Thanks,

Lori

He may have a virus. Every now and then I think DS gets a mild stomach virus that doesn't cause any vomiting, just a week of yucky, yellow runny poops. In fact, we are in the midst of a particularly nasty one right now. Do they smell pretty bad? (Worse than normal) That is usually a good clue.

Just keep nursing and keep him hydrated, and hopefully it will pass in a few days.

HTH,
Jenn

Thank you for your reply Jenn.

The poops don't smell worse than normal and some of them even smell like the baby poops used to smell. He even is waking up in the night to poop which he never did before.

Otherwise he seems fine.

Thanks,

Lori

Lori, I wouldn't worry about it too much. As long as he is still keeping his fluid intake up and is happy and content, I wouldn't worry much. Breastmilk is the best thing for him even if he does have a mild stomach virus. Just keep doign what you are doing.
