Last night Maddie woke up with a diaper spelling like vomit. No kidding, exactly like it. It was down her leg, so I guess it was runny to a point, but when I rinsed her diaper out, it peeled right off the cloth, and left dry white behind, so its not like the cloth was soaked. My mom said she had a diaper like this last week, and DH mentioned she had a pretty gross one the next day, but then she was fine for a few days.

I had to give her a bath at 4am because she still smelled even after the wipes. She was happy sitting in the tub, but when I brought her in our bed, she cried when I tried to lay her down. I had to sit up with her for an hour while she fell back asleep. I gave her some cocyntal, I guess it worked since she did sleep then until 9am. Today she has been super cranky/clingy, then barely ate anything for lunch. For dinner I got her to eat peanut butter toast, cauliflower, potato, yogurt and applesauce, and then right after eating she had another vomit diaper.

I feed her a pretty mild and regular diet. She mostly eats whole grain breads, pastas, fruits, veggies, yogurt and peanut butter. I worried it was eggs, b/c she had been getting them occasionally and then I started every day, but it didn't really coincide with the diarrhea. So I'm thinking it isn't the food. I worry it may be the milk. I give her organic whole milk, but she has been getting it for 3 months without any problems. Would a lactose intolerance show up now?

I'm also thinking she might have just caught a virus, but it seems weird that she'd have the gross diaper on Tuesday, and Wednesday and then not again till Saturday.

I guess this is a bunch of info, for me to ask, what do I do? I've been trying to have her drink water, I normally don't give her much, but then I read that for diarrhea you should give plain water. Any suggestions? Something natural preferably!

Oh, and DH was doing searches on his phone at 3am and came up with Rotovirus, which I just don't think it is...

I would try the B.R.A.T diet...Bananas Rice Applesauce and Toast. Keep it plain and simple for a while and see if it continues even with a bland diet (oh and water of coarse)....breastfeeding still of coarse as well...but food wise I'd keep it to BRAT. If it stops for several days (I'd go a week since it's been hit and miss)...I'd start back up and see if there seems to be a connection to food...if it doesn't then great maybe it was a virus...

If you were to try those things and after a day she still has another nasty dipe...then I'd just keep her comfy and get her to eat/drink the best foods and liquids I could for while she's going thru it.

Anyway..those are my two guesses! Rotovirus is vomiting and nastiness..You'd KNOW if it was that kind of virus...it's spread by bacteria in the poop....which would be caused by someone going potty and not washing properly...or by someone changing a diaper and not washing properly afterwards....or by any other means in which the bacteria in potty ends up being ingested.

Ok..HUGS...and loves to miss maddie!!!!!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I agree with what Martha said. If it was Rota virus you would know. It is water for diarrhea and tons of vomiting.

Are those diapers oily or phlegm-ish at all? That could be a food protein intolerance. Those can develop over time or be there from the start.

I would keep a food log of what she eats and when she has the vomit diapers. It would take 8-12 hours for her to poop what could have irritated her...around 5-6 if she is having loose stools...around 2-4 if she is having watery stools. I would keep track of those time periods of eating before a vomit diaper and try to find a correlation.

If she is acting like her belly hurts I would try cutting out the whole milk and just rely on BM for a while. See if that helps. People with lactose intolerance can sometimes handle a certain amount of dairy before their body can't take anymore...maybe she reaches her limit on those days. :/

I really hope she starts to feel better soon.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

Thanks ladies! I didn't think it was rotovirus, especially after reading about the vomit, she has not vomited at all. She woke up to nurse last night but went right back to sleep so that was a relief. She's still a little cranky, but I did forget to mention that she is getting molars in too. She hasn't had issues with teething before, but I wonder if the molars are just harder on her? I am keeping her diet very mild for now. Hopefully she'll be all better soon!
