Frequent Bowel Movements

I have an 8 month old baby girl who has had frequent, non-diarrhea bowel movements for a little over a week. She is breast fed and started solids approx 2 months ago. It seems completely unrelated to the start of a new food, I have not changed my diet either. She is having 5-6 a day. I talked to pedi about it and she isn't concerned unless watery. She is getting intermittently red now despite diligent diaper changes with Aquaphor. Any suggestions or feedback? Thanks!

4 1/2 Month Old Has Been Constipated Since Birth, Tried Just About Everything!

My son has had trouble w/ bowel movements since birth. I've been supplementing with formula since his first week (since my milk never fully came in). On his pediatrician's advice, we've tried milk-based formula, soy, apple juice, pear juice, milk of magnesium, nothing seems to help! Since we changed to soy last week, (again, on the Ped's advice) he's going more frequently, but his BM's are more painful now and even causing a little bleeding. He did really well on Good Start Natural Cultures for a while, then he started getting really...

Causes of Diarrhea

My son just turned one this month. He's awesome, walking and chatting away. However, we are going on 4 days of diarrhea. My poor kid. It started Saturday and shows no signs of letting up. I called his Ped. but since he does not have a fever, is not vomiting, and still has an appatite they said there is really nothing they can do it just has to run it coarse. I don't know what's causing it. Maybe he picked up a bacteria, maybe he's got some back teeth coming in, I dont' know. I've got him on a very bland diet and keeping him hydrated...

Baby's Poo Burned Her Bottom :(

My 15month old daughter had a poo that burned her bottom so badly there are even 2 small spots where the skin is a little broken from blistering. Has anyone experienced this?There were no new or acidic foods and she's not sick, I'm not sure what could have caused it. It happened late yesterday afternoon at daycare, and when I got her home to bathe her she couldn't even sit in the water and cried from pain, it was awful. I put lots of diaper cream for the night and this morning it was better, it also seemed to be healing throughout the day....

Help with Diaper Rash.

My 5 month old daughter has a horrible diaper rash. It is blood red and has what looks to be blisters that bleed. I have done everything I know to treat it, I have used vaseline, diaper rash cream, cream for a yeast infection everything I could think of. The only other thing I could think of is maybe she's allergice to the diapers. Any suggestions. I am going to take her to the dr on Monday but I was wondering if there was anything else I could do in the meantime.
