Chloe was started on Prevacid last week (4mg 2xday).

Prior to this she was only having dirty diapers about once every 3-5 days. She had a lot of gas, straining and what appeared to be discomfort.

Since we started the Prevacid there has been less gas and straining. She seems to be much happier and more comfortable.

The past 24 hours she has had a lot of noisy blowouts, but when I check her diaper, it is mostly just liquid/stained. There has been some proper poop, but also a couple times this liquidy/staining.

I read that diarrhea can be a side effect of the Prevacid. Has your baby had this side effect? Should I call the pediatrician?

We switched Bryson to the Prevacid and Nutramigen formula at the same time so I can't really say which one has caused it but yes, he has loose yellow stools that sound like an explosion many times a day. When I asked my doctor she said it was normal on the type of formula we use, I would maybe give them a call to see that way it would at least give you piece of mind!

Same here, but Wesley was on Alimentum formula with Prevacid. I would be concerned if she only had diarrhea, and never any solid poop. Then I would probably call and make sure she wouldn't get dehydrated or anything. Babies get bugs and teething can cause diarrhea too.

if she is only breastfed its probably normal. When Avery started Pravacid she had green watery, it slowly got mushier but never had that "yellow seedy breastfed poop" till after she weaned from the preavacid at 11 months
