My son had some loose stools on Tuesday and then before bed had diarreha for the first time. He continued it on Weds. so i called his pedo dr. at 11 am and no call back, then at 2 pm and no call back. Then at 4 pm he drank 6 ozs of Similac Advanced formula and projectiled it out. SCARY! I put another call in to his dr. cause i didn't know if i should try to refeed him or not and if at his age he could try pedialyte. 15 mins. passed and still no call so i went ahead and fed him another 3 ozs of formula and 3 ozs of pedialyte. he did fine with it and then at 4:30 the dr called me back. She said just to keep him hydrated and watch his temp. I told her his rectal temp was 100.6. She said not too extremely high so to watch it and it was ok to give him pedialyte and suggested baby yogurt to help put the good bacteria in his system. This morning at 3:30am my son had diarreha and my husband wanted us to go get some different formula for him to try for a day or two. I bought Similac sensative Isomil soy at walmart. They were the only store open. I wanted the Similac Isomil DH now called Similac Diarreha formula, but they didn't have it. Does anyone out there know if the Similac sensative Isomil soy is going to be better for his diarreha or could it make it worse? He also had this formula when he was about a week old and did fine with it.
