I was wondering if anyone has gone through something similar. About a month ago my DD had a bout of diarrhea (a huge, but really HUGE, amount of green, mucousy poop). The doctor said it was a virus and it would run its course in 2-3 weeks.
Fast forward to more than 4 weeks later... Although the giant green poops didn't return, her poops have become more watery. When the poop comes out, there is the pasty part, the seedy part, and then transparent yellow water around it. Worse: sometimes, she farts and only squirts of the transparent yellow water come out. And also, she poops 6-8 times a day, and there always seems to be a little bit of poop in between the larger poops. Sometimes she spends one hour pooping, in between larger and smaller amounts of poop (this often happens when I'm changing her).
From time to time she has green or brown poops, and also mucus.
Plus she is SUPER GASSY (like, scary gassy), often has discomfort when pooping, and often gets a little reflux-y.
The doctor said it could be an allergy and I have eliminated dairy, wheat, soy, nuts, and onions for ten days already. I haven't noticed any difference.
In the meantime they are running a stool sample to see if she has giardia.
She was a little over one month when the diarrhea started, and now she is 10 weeks. Her weight gain is excellent (she went from 7lb 10oz at one month to 10lb 6oz at two months) so the doctor wasn't that concerned.
From everything I've read and heard, I thought this was the time when the poops would get fewer. Instead, she's pooping round the clock, and the watery squirts are very disconcerting. I wanted to know if anyone else has ever experienced something similar, and if so, what the cause and the outcome were.
PS. She has always been EBF'd.
