My 5 1/2 month old has been having explosive stools (up the back almost to neck, needs baths, that bad..) almost daily. Lately it has been multiple times/day. I emailed his doc today but have not heard back yet. My husband text me to tell me he is running over another outfit to daycare as he went through 2 outfits already. So in total today, since 2 am, he has had FOUR explosive poops. They are yellow and very foul smelling.
Saturday night we tried Earth’s Best rice cereal for the first time.. 1/2 TBSP maybe at most. Sunday he spiked a fever of 100.5. no runny nose etc. Resolved on its own by Monday. That night he had an explosive WATERY smelly, yellow stool…
A little history: he had green poops up until recently. I read that it could be caused from foremilk/hindmilk imbalance or dairy intolerance. I cut out most dairy and switched up how I was nursing..the green poops resolved and are now the mustard yellow color. But they always had that awful foul odor.
Wondering, what are your little one’s stools like? I was told they shouldn’t be smelly like they are?? Anyone have a similar experience?
Any advice is much appreciated! Thank you 🙂
