Runny poo in 3 month old,but not diarrhoea

Hi

My DD is 3 months old,for a few weeks now her poo's have been runny.At first I thought it was because she was on Anti-biotics,but the runny poo has continued. I don't think it is Diarrhoea as she only goes once every couple of day's.



She seems fine in herself,feeding as normal,sleeping as normal etc



Her weight gain hasn't been brilliant this week (but still a gain)





Should I be worried? Is runny poo normal when she previously had 'normal' poo?



Thanks

xxxxxxxx

Can't remember Csam, is she breast of formula fed? If its boob then I wouldn't worry, breast fed baby poo can often be runny. In fact in general if she is well, gaining weight, weeing, sleeping as normal then I'm pretty sure it will sort itself out. If its still happening in another week then it might be worth talking to your HV or GP. And if she becomes unwell, then obviously don't wait, take her straight away.

Thanks Mrs J,she's formula fed unfortunately. She does seem fine,but I'll obv keep an eye on her.We have our own scales so we weigh her every week (which probably isn't a good idea really :rolleyes: )but I like to keep an eye on her weight as she was a dinky dot when born. It would be good if her poo's would firm up,much easier to clean!

Hi Csam,
I'm literally having exactly the same with H at the moment and he's about the same age as your LO.
Goes every couple of days, runny, but fine in himself.
Let me know how you get on with your LO.

Hiya Laura



How's little H now? My DD's poo' s are still runny! The one she did this morning was a bit thicker but minging to clean up! I'm really sure there is nothing wrong with her though.



Keep me updated about H,I never thought I'd be one of those parents who talked about their babies poo :snigger:



Take care

xxxxx

Hi,
He hadn't done one for 2 days. But he had his 12 week jabs today and did a poo about 2 hours later.
It was more like thick paste. But the diarrhoea went on for a couple of weeks. I wasn't too worried coz he didn't do more than 3 in 24 hours.
Fingers crossed that he's ok now.
Hope that your DD's poo continues to thicken :snigger:
