runny poo!

posted 1 decade 7 years ago
Hi all! My little girl is 8 months and teething has given her the runs. Has anyone else had this problem? She is really well in herself(apart from saw gums) not being sick, no temperature, but pooing 4 or 5 times a day and has a very sore bottom. Help!

This can sometimes happen when teething but then I dont usually like to put everything down to that. As she seems fine in herself then you probably dont need to worry.

If her bottom is sore, try leaving her nappy off for a while at nappy change to get some fresh air. I also use sudocrem to help ease nappy rash and make sure you change her nappy as soon as she has pooed so that its not left interacting with her urine for too long as that will just make it worse.

Has she got any teeth through yet??

Our youngest always has a sore bum when he's teething. I just put sudocrem on it and put a bit of dettol in his bathwater. Doesn't usually last for longer than 2/3 days.

George is getting another tooth and his poos are on the runny side and his bum is red raw. I've been using metanium (I think I've spelled it wrong sorry) and it helps with the soreness it's fantastic stuff.

Also just been leaving him to crawl around in the buff so he can have some air to his bottom.
