x = irritability, diarrhea, diaper rash

Poor ds. Every diaper today has ended in poop. Some that were 30 minutes apart with no pee, but diarrhea. His little bum is getting red and he screams when he is dirty. Not just crying, screams!

What is wrong with him? His appetite is the same. Still nursing a lot and eating as much food as normal. No real changes in diet. No new food for either of us. I'm lost. What can I do for him?

We have never experienced this with previous teething. He's got 6 teeth. Could he just now start having that reaction to teething?

Ugh, sounds like Angus. I eventually found a good thick heavy barrier cream with the highest level of zinc I could find, no fragrance, slathered it on and put corn starch on top of the cream. Best I could tell it was either teeth or stress related. He's almost three and still has bouts like this.

He could be getting sick too. When my kid gets the flu, it usually starts at that end. I'm sorry for him. I hope it doesn't last long.

Yikes! I am using Weleda diaper cream heavily and I cut up an old fleece baby blanket to use as liners. I've got a new tube in the med cabinet so I'm using it heavily.

I sure hope not. Poor guy.
