Any info on a similar experience appreciated.
Amy, mom to Tsuneo, 09/12/01
Lord, the stench! It's like The Exorcist with diapers! I am giving diluted juices with infant pro-biotic mixed in. I cut all dairy and am doing BRAT for her. She's now refusing to take more than a bite of food at a time. Lots of weeping. Lots of clinging. Tomorrow will be day 6 of this insanity. I'm burning lavender candles and the house still smells like something died in it. That must be one bad bug.
and those poops--in our case they reverted to nb poops from all the extra nursing.
cutting dairy made a big difference for us (he'd been eating yogurt, cheese, and a little milk-based formula to supplement from my breast reduction). adding bifidus helped too...
good luck, and hopefully it passes soon.
Is this Measles? She had the full series of shots for MMR. What do you think? I understand that Measles are rare now.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Do you have a homeopath you can talk too?There are GREAt remedies to help with the bms and the clingyness too.
Roseola is a form of Herpes. There are two strains that cause this disease in infants. This particular strain my dd had really presented like measles with the only real difference that the onset of the rash is during the fever in measles and after it subsides in Roseola. Oh She did not get the sores that appear inside the mouth just prior to the rash portion of true measles. So Roseola. No fun. I don't recommend. Give it a miss.
