At six weeks, my exclusively breastfed daughter started having infrequent stools (every other day), but doc said that is normal. Last Tuesday night (5 nights ago), she started having frequent, green, watery stools (8 or so/day). PM nurse line my doc uses recommended increased breastfeeding and 2-4 oz of Pedialyte several times per day. She did not improve, so called doc on Thurs and he said it sounds like a virus that's going around and to stay the course. Friday night it still did not improve, so I called the nurse line, who told me to have her looked at. I took her to the ER and they said her hydration status is good so stop Pedialyte. The next day, she had only two mustardy, seedy stools with only a little green, which I thought was good. But today she has had six mustardy, seedy stools and they are very loose.
I am so worried that this is not normal because I was told that her earlier, every other day pattern was normal, and to top it all off, she is scheduled for vaccinations on Wednesday. I don't want her to get shots if this is not normal as it seems she needs to have as strong immune system as possible before getting shots. Can anyone tell me if this is normal?
