Abnormal Poop for a week now, please help!
My DD has been having frequent and abnormal bowel movements for a week now. It's diarrhea, the BMs are very liquid and greeny brown and sometimes she has a very green mucous movement.
- LO is nearly 6 MO and is EBM
- LO got her first two teeth Jun 8, but doesn't seem to be teething now
- no vomit, no signs of dehydration
- having 1-4 bowel movements/day
- no fever, crankiness etc what so ever
- I and LO are taking probiotics 3X per day
- BMs are really smelly, almost sour like
- no changes in my diet at all (I am dairy free too!)
- before this episode LO was stooling 3 times a week
-still having plenty of wet dipes
-haven't changed my nursing style at all, I offer the breast every 2-3 hrs and don't have LO on a schedule
- She is now usually just taking one side and sometimes both
Our physician tells me she doubts it is a tummy bug as normally they are cranky as well too and usually often vomit- which she isn't. She thinks it's because she is nursing too frequently. I don't think I have an oversupply problem, but LO is nursing often (sometimes every 2 hrs) but sometimes for not long at all- just minutes...I was assuming for hydration. I was trying to nurse her often so she wouldn't get dehydrated...but maybe this is causing the issue?
Any ideas? LO seems not to be bothered at all, but of course I am concerned. Should I just try to space out our nursing intervals to 3 hrs to try to help LO get more dessert and less soup? My instinct has been telling me to offer the breast even more to ensure she is hydrated.

You don't need to offer ot less. She could be getting too much fore milk. Offer only one side per feeding and if the feeding is not a complete one, more of a snack offer the same side again at the next session. it will help make sure she's getting all the fattyness.
