Daughter has weird poo. Looking for possibilities of what this could be

7 votes
For the past 5 days I have been dealing with leaky nappies, stained body suits, a sore bum, no appetite and a clingy baby with really stinky poo!

What is going on? Could it be gastroenteritis? There is a bug going around the nursery. Could it be teething? He hasn't had his fang teeth through yet. What about celiac disease?
We've got a doctors appt on Monday, but he is obviously really uncomfortable, and I'm worried about him not eating. And that red bum...
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

No appetite & abnormal poo are a couple signs of celiac disease.  Hope it's just a bug & he'll recover quickly.  I bet Monday can't come soon enough!  Keep us informed on your little mans progress.  Best wishes Diane!

Can relate. My baby has black thread-like strands in his poop. I decided to take him off all solids about a week ago because was so constipated  I looked up pinworms but they supposedly are white in color and you're able to see them move. icky. I am taking baby to the doc with a sample to get it checked out. Couldn't find answers any where else, but can post whatever I find out from the doctors visit
