So when everything fails me i come to this forum usually to know if I am the only one facing this or if it is normal.
DD is happy and playful as ever (except during the night, when she cries because of dry cough and teething pain and maybe stuffy nose)
She is a formula fed baby and has been taking Aptamil stage 3 since her 6th month (that is also when I completely stopped breastfeeding)
However, lately (since 10 days now) she has been pooping after each feed (milk or solid or whatever). Earlier she would poop only once or twice a day (from 4th month until very recently).
This excessive pooping has started since we came back from India (although she was surprisingly fine while in India, I had a bad stomach but she took the trip pretty well). This is all I have tried so far
1. I considered it diarrhoea (although the poops are not runny, but the spurt and so almost always an accident) and tried treating it with banana and light food and lots of water to drink. Dint work
2. Thought it is a stomach bug, so met the GP and GP said that a bug will hurt her appetite too (but she is eating alright)
The GP also told me to get her off the food and milk for a while (a Day) and just give her dyroldite (electrolyte solution) which she dint appreciated after half day and so I gave her milk and 20 minutes after was a big accident again.
I am wondering if the change of Formula milk for a short while in India might have anything to do with it (as Aptamil was not available there and we were there for a whole month). but than again she was fine in India and the problem started only after we came back home.
the pooping 5-6 times a day has also caused a big diaper rash (for which my GP has prescribed an ointment and that is helping).
also, her poops are generally green with traces of undigested food or milk in it. Could it be that she has suddenly become intolerant to aptamil or to formula ? She is 9 months now.
any thoughts, ideas and suggestions ladies
thanks much !
