2mos baby w/ diarreah

My baby was suffering from diarreah for 5days now. Lab result shows that she had drank bad / spoiled milk. Sghe was then given antibiotic and suspension - that was 3 days ago but until this moment nothing seems to change w/ her bowel movement. We became more careful in cleaning her bottles and started to give her 'pedialite' water. We used to use comm'l distilled water. Anymore advice?

Not sure if this works, but I read that you can rub plain vinegar on the bottoms of baby's feet for diarrea. Also, I have a bottle of homeopathic Arsenicum Album that I bought for somthing else, but the bottle says for diarrea. Also, there's a show on TV about natural health remedies. They say that even babies need acidophilus/probiotics, such as Natren's Healthy Start. It can be added to baby formula. It will replenish the good bacteria in the bowels and gut. The doctor recommending it said that his children are grown now, but never had diarrea as babies and he gave them this. Hope you find something that helps immediately.

I second that motion on the probiotics. It's imperative to restore good bacteria after taking antibiotics.

You'll have to double check on this, but I believe 99% of the beneficial bacteria in a babies GI tract is Bifidobacterium bifidum, if so this is the type you should add.

Diarrhea can be a normal part of the body's way to clear out infection, and antibiotics cansometimes cause it. So she may be experiencing new diarrhea from the antibiotics.

Dehydration is much worse than diarrhea. Make sure she is getting enough fluids!!!

Some people might suggest you switch to a soy-based formula if you are using a milk-based one. This might slow the stools down (because of the fiber). Careful though, soy as well as milk are common allergy foods.

If she runs a fever with diarrhea, or isn't drinking enough fluids, GET HELP ASAP.

Change her diaper as often as possible, and let her go without whenever possible. Lay her on a cloth diaper or towel and air dry her bottom. Don't use wipes during diarrhea. Use a lukewarm soft,washcloth, and use only once per change.

Use some kind of gentle diaper cream when not air drying.

Oatmeal baths are great for rashy bottoms. Put a cup of rolled oats in a long sock you don't have a match for. Tie in a knot and put in while running bathwater. Squeeze sock periodically until you get the water milky. Soak.

P.S. No, I'm not a doctor. I'm a mother of 2, aunt of 7, and an older sibling of 5. I only know a little bit about babies.

Hope this helps.

From WNCGirl again:

Did Dr.s tell you why stool was bloody? Is is still bloody with antibiotics? If so, you should talk to somone about it.

Average diarrhea can last from 5-7 days.

Viral diarrhea is most common from Nov. to May in N. Hemisphere.

Antibiotic diarrhea will last as long as the antibiotic is taken.

Hi thank you all for the reply. My baby is much better now. I think the last set of antibiotics worked for her. Finally the vinegar thing helps I guess and lots of h20. Luckily she did not develop any rashes. ust keep on changing her diaper everytime. And dont use cheap diaper, let the money go to waste in expensive diaper during diarrhea rather than developing a new set of problem later on!
