Toddler Diarrhea??

July 6, 2006 9:04pm CST
OK, this has been an on going thing with my now 2 year old. Since she has been born I can count on my 2 hands how many solid diapers she has had. I have spoke to my Pediatrician and he says it it Toddler Diahhrea? So you take her off of juice (note that I always dilute with 3/4 water) and only give whole milk. Her bowel movements do start to get more formed but then has a blow out! Her bowel movements are very "Stinky" (yes I know ...but these are god awful to were you want to run the other direction and not return!) They are various different colors green, yellow, grainy to where you can't get it off of her....etc. I do feed her healthy food and I am at a loss because I am afraid that there could be an underlying problem. I know this is off the wall but any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'd take her to a different pediatrician if I were you, and see if I could get more information that would help you.

Sounds like a possible allergy.

When did you notice the onset of this? Or did it just all of a sudden start one day? You may want to take her to another pediatrician. This is probably nothing, but it is better to be safe than sorry. I would hate for you daughter to suffer just due to something minor - like a food allergy - that your Dr is overlooking.

could be allergic to milk products, I have serveral children and grandchildren and have seen this. We have had to give the soy milk to them till they get older. It seem to help. But not sure in your case. I know corn is not good for a child till they get older. I had a son that had the diarrhea evey time he would eat corn. It does not digest in the system. Not sure but try the mild thing and see or if you can get powerder milk and try. If this does not work, I would get a second oppion from another doctor that maybe specilizes in childrens stomachs
