I bet y'all are getting a little tired of all my issues. Lol. But I have one more question.
Emmy has had diarrhea since probably Saturday or Sunday. Just to recap, her stools have had mucus in them and last Thursday we went to the pediatritians and she said probably dairy allergy and told me to eliminate it. But since this weekend her stools have become very watery and they have that acidic diarrhea smell to them. Could that be from the vaccinations still? Today is Wednesday and she had a huge bowel movement this morning and it was still super watery. Is it something I need to call the pedi about? She doesn't seem in distress other than before a bowel movement; she gets very squirmy and restless. And her tummy has been gurgling a lot.. But she is eating well and like I said, doesn't seem to be in constant distress or anything.
Thanks for the help once again!!

Most of Ailish's poops are watery. No acidic smell though. I would guess it could still be a reaction to the vaccines. I know my younger brother had a very bad reaction to the dtap vaccine and it lasted several days. He couldn't get it again, but that was a really bad reaction.

If Emmy is acting normally I wouldn't be concerned.

Theres also a nasty bug going around that involves throwing up and diarrhea. Everyone in my family but Ailish has it. Even my extended family all have it. My sister said her ds has been having such bad diarrhea his butt is raw and bleeding.

Thanks Jenn! Yeah the diarrhea started maybe 2 days after the vaccines. Her stools were always loose too but now you can see like water seeping in the cloth diaper around the actual poop. Tmi, sorry. Lol. But I don't know how else to explain it. It's obviously a lot more watery than before. Plus that acidic smell!
I'll give it another few days. Does anyone know how long I should expect it to last if it's residual from the vaccines?

More than likely its from the rotavirus vaccine. My pedi said it'll last about a week & to make sure you're washing your hands really well after each diaper change. Rotavirus has a HORRIBLE smell....one that takes forever to leave your nose!

Thanks Elli.

See Jill, that's what I heard about the rota vax but Emmy didn't get that! We opted to refuse that one. I actually ended up putting in a call to the nurses because of yet another issue we are having; the doctor made us aware that her head is misfiring ever so slightly because she lays on her right so much. Every night when she sleeps she turns her head so that she is laying on the right side. I didn't even really pay that much attention to it but now that she mentioned it, I realize how bad it is. I can't get her to turn her head, even if I put toys on the oter side.
It's always something. Lol

Thanks Amanda, posted at the same time. Lol. She didn't get that vax though.

wow, I've never heard of that! What does the pedi suggest you do to help her turn her head more?

Take her to a chiropractor for her head/neck. The underlying issue needs to be fixed. Both Lila and Eleanor have had problems. Luckily I knew to take Eleanor in and it's pretty much resolved.

We can't really afford that right now. I've actually thought about that! I'll look into how much it costs but money is really tight.
How many treatments do you think she would need?

We've had 3 but there was a major improvement after the first one.

Have you checked if your insurance covers it?

I'd think the insurance should cover that, since it's an actual health issue for your baby and her physical development!

Just wanted to add that Ares sometimes has VERY watery poops and sometimes they smell acidic too. He's not sick and no vaccines done here!

no suggestions here, sorry. my kids poop differs on a daily basis from birth and still experiencing it with my 5 year old. i have stopped trying to make sense of it. i hope it's nothing wrong with emmy and its just your normal breastfed poo variation.

Luyando's poop too varies all the time; if she is okay otherwise I wouldn't worry. Hope you get the right-preference issue resolved.

If you hold them the same way all the time, it can cause that to happen. Just work on getting her to turn her head the other way. Try having her sleep with it the other way and feed with it the other way. Same thing happened to my oldest son... it worked out okay!

We get watery poop here, also.

Oh, and when you are holding her upright, make her head turn the other way (like hold her on the opposite shoulder than you normally do).

i agree with getting her adjusted. ruby was just adjusted a few times last month but it was by the husband of the le leche league hostess, he did it for free which was awesome. she had 2 adjustments so far.

Wow Kristen, how lucky!!!!!! Wish I had someone who could do it for us.
Well the nurse called yesterday and they recommend PT. it's insanely expensive. I already talked to insurance and although they cover PT, the place here that does it is out of network. Great. So it's about $250 for initial consult and $118 for each consequent visit. We can't afford that now. if they were in network it would only be a $35 copay!
But calling about chiro is a good idea! Maybe they'll cover that. Now can any chiro do infants? Or does it have to be a specialized one?
