    Default diarreoha or breast milk nappies?

    Hi folks, just wondering how do you know the difference between a diarrea (sorry spelt incorrectly i know!) and a breast milk nappy if toddler has done lots of nursing?
    thanks

    I would look at the frequency of the bms.

    In my experience, a breastmilk poo has more of a "peanut butter" consistency... where it's unformed and SOFT but not too loose. Diarrhea is definitely more the consistency of straight WATER, very VERY loose and liquidy.

    Diarrhea is runny and watery. Breast milk poo is soft but not watery.

    Plus, if they have diarrhea, they won't be peeing very much because they lose all that water in their stools.
