this is weird! it just started maybe yesterday or day before. i'm changing his diaper and smell a hint of mothballs. we don't have any mothballs on the premises. he is 29 mos old and still nursing, though i'm pregnant and now producing colostrum. diet has not changed - mine or his. we are vegetarian, but we are not vegan. he's pooping more loosely now that the colostrum is in, but otherwise, things "look" normal. he seems healthy and happy as usual. any ideas?

That is a weired smell. He hasn't been over anyone's house where he could have gotten into moth balls?

How about medicine? Have you or he taken anything allopathic or otherwise?

How about vaccines? When was his last vaccines? More than a few weeks ago?

Just trying to make suggestions but you have to be the detective.

Diaper pail deodorizers can contain some of the same chemicals as in mothballs. Is it possible your dc has been exposed to something like this?

Or is it possible the smell is from his diapers and not from him (via a deodorizer) -- can you smell it when the diaper is just wet?
