This sucks... now Levi has diarrhea . He's sleeping, but he's already leaked twice since we put him down. This is the first time he's ever gotten it. The part that really blows is that we go to the laundromat. I wish I could wash his stuff tonight. It got on his lovies and only full length waterproof sheet I have.

Could it be a side effect of teething? I hope it's not that rota virus going around. We can't seem to get a break around here!

BTDT moms, any tips to make this easier?

Ugh I know the pain! When we all had the pukes and poops it was hell, the laundry was the worst part of it! Everything was covered. The boys favorite blankets, Baileys, well, everything in her crib....

Keep the stuff that you don't mind waiting for laundry with him. The lovey, try washing it in the sink, and letting it air dry. If you have to google cleaning options for it. We've had to wash so many things by hand, from stuffed animals, to blankets, to Thomas' school uniforms, and even my work uniform when I was working.

It will pass, no clue if teething can do it. Right now is the first time I've dealt with teething symptoms.

This would be the first time he'd ever shown symptoms if that's it. We've been very lucky so far.

We had a LONG night. Didn't get to sleep until about 4 after a few more bed changes and one throw up. DH had to go out and get some nice disposables, since we can't keep up with the cloth laundry now.

Does that sound like it could be that sickness you guys got that's going around? I'd much rather deal with teething than actual sickness.

All my girls had diarrhea when teething. There really isn't anything you can do but to keep him hydrated, because diarrhea can make him dehydrated quickly.

Do you have any trainer, plastic pants? If so, throw those on over his diapers.

Knock on wood, Bella never got diarrhea or vomitting when teething, she got fevers, but it definitely can happen. I hope Levi is feeling better really soon!

Knock on wood Xander hasn't gotten diarrhea from teething.

I hope Levi is feeling better and you are able to get some rest.

If he is throwing up, but is mostly got the runs, it does sound more like the bug that has gone around..Thomas mostly had the pukes. Colling it was 50/50. Me, I only puked once, but could not get off the toilet.


How is he feeling today?

He still has diarrhea . It's a bad day. Yesterday he didn't poop once, so I couldn't tell if it was gone, but today it's back full force. Oh, the laundry! It's awful. He's super cranky. Just crying and feeling miserable for himself. Thankfully that one throw up was the only one. He's napping now.

It looks like those teeth are just about to pop through. I still have no idea if it's teething or something else though. I'm leaning toward teething, because we literally had not been out of the house for the entire week last week. It doesn't really matter, though, as long as he starts feeling better!

This is one of those times I'm thinking we should start looking for a new place. The thought of ever having 2 kids with this and no washer is too much.

Poor little guy. I feel his pain. I'm just getting over 6 days of it. I hope it eases off for him soon. If he'll eat try and keep him on the BRAT diet and clear fluids until it eases.
