This actually started yesterday but I didn't realize it. DH had changed her diaper and when I came into the room a noticed a little green booger like thing on her vulva and I asked DH if there was poop in the diaper and he said no. But he had already put in in the diaper bin so I just figured maybe she had one of those little poop farts and he didn't notice so I wiped her off and didn't think anything of it.

Well then this morning when I took off her diaper there was a spot on there of discharge, pretty much just like when a woman has some vaginal discharge and it gets on her underwear. When I spread her labia there was another "glob" of discharge there, like a booger. Her inner labia and vaginal opening do look a little red.

Anyway, took her temp and it was fine so I don't think she has a bacterial infection. What should I do to treat this? Does it really require a trip to the pedi? Trying to avoid going there because we don't vax and also want to avoid all the sick kids but of course if it is necessary, then it is necessary Ironically enough, I started giving her probiotics the past 2 days.


Jenna in love with my DH Jon, loving our 2.5 year old, Caroline Tulip, and expecting another little one in August!
