We started Brielle on oatmeal and she's had diarrhea since. Is it an allergy and if so what is it in the oatmeal she's allergic to so we can avoid foods like it?
It's mixed with breast milk and she's had it for two days. Today's the second day and we started last night at around 7ish. My boyfriend gave it some time while I was at work this morning (7-12) and she's had diarrhea all morning apparently and she's had it pretty bad since I've been home. Normally she poops every other day and today she's already pooped 5 times and it just keeps coming and coming when she goes. And it's like water.
The main treatment for diarrhea in children is rehydration to replace lost fluid quickly. Don't give her any more oatmeal try waiting a month before you try it with her again, it might not be an allergy to the oatmeal. Give it time. Try introducing bananas they help with diarrhea.
It could be.
She's teething too and I thought that could cause diarrhea but she's been teething for about 2 weeks and the diarrhea seems to have come with the oatmeal. But I'll call her pediatrician.
How old is she?
3 and a half months. her doctor said start at 4 months but all of my friends started their babies at 3. and it said on the box if she's pretty much sitting up on her own and chewing on stuff and things like that that she may be ready for oatmeal so I thought I'd give it a try.
