Post subject: 7 month old, diarrhea for 7 days now
Just wanted some advice really, my LO has had the squits for 7 days, I took her to the doctors just for peace of mind and was literally told what I assumed... ride it out.
Her bum is sooooooo sore its unbearable, sudocrem, bepanthen arent helping, does anyone use anything else to help?, also is there anything I can give to help with the squits(!).

Nothing that will stop it but dioralyte to replace lost salts if lo will drink it, also not sure on the age its allowed from check with pharmacist, Charlotte had a tummy bug and it lasted 10 days
The best thing I have come by for a sore bum is metanium cream, its amazing, my lo's don't tend to suffer with nappy rash unless they have a tummy bug, I use it after the bath at night and bum looks alot better in the morning and normally gone in a day or two xx

She is only 7 months, so I cant give her dirolyte(cant spell that!!). I have been keeping the nappy off for as much as I can to let the air get to her bum.
Squits for 3.5 weeks!!!!, I am going thru nappies like no-ones business!!! I have been giving her lots of water. I said to my GP that I am worried its because I have introduced new tastes, textures etc and when she eats she has the squits so how is her body absorbing the nutrients etc you know ?
He basically checked her bum and daisy(!!) and listened to her bowels and said it will pass and sent me on my way. I can cope with the squits but her poor little bum x
