So apperently if a baby has loose bowel movements more then 3 times they would have to be sent home.....
Well Leo had 3 loose BM today and he had to go home... Should I be worried?
My husband said that he seemed fine when he picked him up. I know he was struggling last night to go and when he did it was solid.
Is he constipated? You said he was struggling to go and when he did it was solid. A mostly formula fed baby should not have solid poop. Firmer yes but not solid. Sometimes when a child is constipated they have several loose poops because it's making its way around the solid, hard part. Rice cereal constipates so I would cut that out and see if his poop gets back to normal.
well to this day tuckr still has not had a solid poop since he is still primarily BF'd. Its getting thicker now since we have introduced solids, but its still loose.
i agree with Sherry, that is a ludacris rule. i would be worried about their policy not your child.
some people are just dumb.
now if he had a fever and was cranky and obviously not feeling good in addition to this yea i can understand it. but just because of that? thats silly.
i wouldnt be worried. I'd just take a look at what he had to eat.
So Leo had the forth BM last night but it was liquidy.. sorry to try to paint the picture but we all have seen BM's ;p
Leo seemed to be fine and no fever though.. This morning he was fine... I think he was just REALLY backed up and yesterday was the day.. I'm actually relieved that he went so that it clears out his system.....
But I also gave him some Pedialite so he wouldn't be dehydrated....
I'm going to lay off the rice cereal and just stick with the fruits and veggies for a while...
ugh daycare can be so annoying!! They alway tell me that Micah has loose stools... He is primarily bf and I am baby led weaning so he doesn;t eat a whole lot since he is still learning. I also don't feed him cereals or anything. Thats just how his poop is and I can tell them until I am blue in the face but they just don't get it... Sorry your daycare center is the same way... If they sent Micah home for that I would probably talk to the director but that is just me
I wouldn't be too worried. Sounds like an overzealous rule to me.
How has he been since, Julie? x
Leo is doing fine now... He is getting his BM about every other day... Sometimes in 3 days...
I limited his rice cereal and made some pureed carrots, bananas and advocados...
He had a BM the other night and it was pretty healthy looking....
I guess to defend the daycare rule... they said that it was going around... They had multiple babies having BM all around the same time and was concerned with Leo because he hardly has a BM at Daycare... (He saves them for me... I guess I'm the lucky one... lol)
