What on earth would cause this? Gross pic included

Ok, I'm at a loss here.

I just went into the bathroom and sprayed out a poopy diaper that DH left in the wetbag overnight. The bag was in our air-conditioned house so it wasn't sitting in the heat or anything like that. Its been less than 24 hours since this diaper was pooped in.

Anyways, this is a BG organic. Under the area where the poo was in the diaper, and also on some areas where there was no poo, its PINK. Is this a bacteria or something? Do I need to bleach this diaper to get rid of it? Or would washing and then sunning be enough to kill whatever is causing this?

Here is a pic after the diaper was sprayed out. The yellow and green is normal...but the pink and reddish is NOT. This is not for the weak stomached, so be warned! Its gross!









Seriously...icky.














And since you suffered through that...here is the cutie pie that makes the messes.


Any ideas on what this ick is or how to get rid of it would be SO appreciated!

I'd have to think maybe it was from something that was eaten?

Re: What on earth would cause this? Gross pic included

did she have something new....like my kids one time ate a couple packages of Welch's fruit gummy things and it turned their poo BRIGHT green - like crayon green - the gummys were the berry/grape flavoers...so mostly purple red so I didn't tie the 2 together...but looked it up online and the blue/purple coloring will make poo green...like seriously green - I thought they might have eaten a marker or something...

So, did she have anything with any kind of food coloring in it?? like even juice?

me too. I wouldn't sweat it. Sunning would probably be a good idea.

Blueberries and blackberries turn diapers very interesting colors. Oxyclean works wonders on berry stains.

I agree it might be something that was eaten. My friend was changing her first baby's diaper the day after his first birthday and his poop was all blue. She panicked thinking something was wrong with him so I asked her what color was the frosting he ate the day before and sure enough it was blue.

Whew...so glad you all think it is food related! She was at my mom's the other day while I was at a job interview for about 4 hours and I'm not sure what my mom gave her. I know they have raspberry bushes that are full of berries so she could have given her some of those, and I know she mentioned giving her some juice too.

I've been using CDs for over 3 years now and I've never had one turn pink before. LOL I'm going to try the sunning and oxyclean and hopefully we'll be good to go.
