For crying out loud – part 2

Okay, now that the Precious has decided he will try foods other than processed pasta dishes, he has diarrhea now.  It’s mild, but it’s decidedly offensive.  Being a dog owner, I’m used to talking about poo.  Ever since Sampson, we got into this habit of what we called the morning poo report.  And having Princess Juno and her delicate stomach made us get into graphic detail that would make most sensible people ill.  Now we having the morning poo report with the Precious.

He likes chickpea and vegetable curry. At least he did for the first few times he had it.  He’s done with it now. Then I tried pasta with organic tomato sauce with pureed veggies, then turkey with mashed potatoes and veggies.  Luckily, he does not an immediate reaction, but he does seems to wake up at 4am with a stench that could knock down a rhino.  And of course, there’s the organic homo milk I’ve been giving him lately.  Then hubby decided on the weekend to put cereal in his bedtime bottle.  So it’s not surprise he’s crapping more than he used to.  I googled all the possibilities, but we’re going to the doctor today anyway for the dreaded shots, so I’ll talk about it with her.  He doesn’t seem to be bothered by it at all – well, beside turning into an Olympic wrestler when I try to change his diaper.  A very loud, screaming Olympic wrestler.  I’ve tried a firm tone when he does this, a hand over his torso with a stern rebuke, mocking him, self deprecating humour,  delightful toys  or objects to hold (usually when he holds something he calms down) but I suppose he just doesn’t care to be interrupted from his machinations to be changed.  Even when he smells like a barnyard.

Okay, I hear his siren call – pray for me.

  1. Hmmm, maybe he’s just struggling with digestive issues? I personally have a tough time with ALL the foods you listed, except maybe the veggies.
    What about backing it down and trying only 1 new thing a week to allow his system a chance to regroup, just like when he was a baby? I don’t know if it’ll work but it may be worth a try.
    I think the worst issue we ever had with MG was 2 yrs in a row while we were at Savary, she had the runs horribly. Nothing would stop them and her poor thighs had blisters from where it would seep out her diapers. While we weren’t feeding her a whole lot that was different, we figured the enviro change (and consumption of sand/seaweed/salt water) was likely the biggest culprit. Now I am very careful to ensure that her diet consists of a lot of foods that may be high in carbs but are easy on her belly – like white rice & white bread, which we NEVER eat at home. So far, so good.

      • Yeah, it was where I learned a valuable lesson – there IS a difference between high priced well known diaper brands and the bargain variety. They may all stop pee relatively well but fit wise, there is NO comparison.

  2. Yup with the introduction of food the poo definitely become more potent…and usually not in a postive way. Usually a more messy smelly way. Um, anyway, I often joke although I’m fairly serious about if that I don’t need to work out if I’m getting that much exercise changing the toddlers diaper. If she won’t sit somewhat still usually slide the diaper underneath, hold the torso down with one hand, and use the other to wipe and powder which is not easy if it’s a particulary loose movement. Good luck!
