Does his stool have a funny smell, way different than what it usually smells like? I know that is a weird question, but it could be a virus.

He was put on the pepti junior cause as a baby couldnt go to the toilet himself he was realli constipated all the time. But since putting him on the pepti junior he been fine till 2 weeks ago.yeah he stools r coming thru his clothea most of the time. I just think the worst. U think stopping his food for q cuple of days wont starve him. I feel so daft.the past two weeks he hasnt realli slept at all buy before that he use to b up every few hours. Id just get to sleep and he,d wake up quite hard cause i both go to work and at college. Everyday a long day

Why was he put on the pepti junior? Has he been gaining weight all along and suddenly is having trouble? The teething can cause loose stools but if they are really watery I would be concerned that it is a food issue. Try backing off on the solids for a few days and stick with just the formula to see if his bowels slow down. If he seems dehydrated; no tears, dry mouth, lethargic or irritable you should seek out some medical help. As far as the sleep, try to get him sound asleep and lay him down. You must be tired. How long has this been going on?

The loose stools have just started i thought it may b his teeth as he gums r swollen. Its just really draining. He just doeant sleep on a night unless he is in my arms he just cries

Has he seen a physician? Does he drink formula or breast milk? If he is on formula, maybe he needs a different kind to stop the loose stools. At 9 months don't worry too much about solids, he may just have a sensitive gag reflex. Try to make sure he is getting enough calories. What do you mean by not sleeping at all?
