Re: Some sort of bug/parasite in DSs stool

Here's another idea?

My DS ate bananas for the first time the other week and had little black worm like threads in his poop. I freaked out. I searched online for some ideas and read that sometimes when LOs start solids and eats bananas, then there could be black threads in his poop. Sure enough, DH had fed him bananas for the first time the day before...so maybe?

btw, I also read online that's like PPs said, it's pretty normal and easily treatable if it is pin worms, for ex.

Re: Some sort of bug/parasite in DSs stool

We went into the peds office yesterday, but have to go back this afternoon. The options were to be referred to the hospital for testeing (waiting 3 days for results???) or come back this afternoon and have the stool sample submitted to the peds lab which wasn't open yesterday.

DS seems a little tired, less active than usual. But that could be attributed to a lot of things. We are just waiting until this afternoon to see what's going on. He is still eating/drinking. He ate a chunk of banana last week, but he has had bananas many times before and what we saw in his poop was completely different than the little stringies. And it has been in his last 3 poops now.

Re: Some sort of bug/parasite in DSs stool

Hmmm...can find anything online that looks like it? I'd ask for pics but I'm assuming that'd be gross, lol.

If they look like earwigs, I can't imagine it being worms...of course, I could totally be wrong but still. Doesn't make sense to me.

Are they dead or alive? My fiance suggested that maybe they're actually getting into his diaper somehow as opposed to coming from internally.

Well, I'm not saying I went through and dug them out of the poo and rinsed them. However, maybe I should have. It is totally possible that it just looks like an earwig to me...but isn't. He had 2 poops today and nothing that looked very concerning.

I'm not sure how anything could get in his diaper before I put them on him, or while he is wearing them. They were dead and looked like they had come out with the poop. Nothing in pee diapes. I would take pics...I have been trying to get someone to look at his poop since Saturday. My DH just left for work for the month on Sat morning, and everyone else thinks I should just throw the diapers away. But they are at home, and I am not. I am heading back to get them and go to the docs shortly.

And throw the diapers away. We are talking BG organic AIOs and GMs here. NO WAY!

If the doc agrees it is a parasite, you may want to deworm all your kids! I would probably even do it just to be on the safe side.

Ewwwww, I agree with everyone else. I'd just bag a diaper with the 'creatures' in it and take it like that in to the Dr.
