Today was finally the day my son got to see a GI doctor! Ever since the day he started whole milk he would have diarrhea, then we went back to formula for a few weeks and it stopped. So I then put him on Soy because after trying whole milk again it started. The doctor pretty much told me he was lactose intolerant and it should stop. Well it didn't, even with Soy milk and Pedialtye it would still continue. For the past two weeks he was on Pedialyte, instructed by his doc, so we waited to see the GI. Well instead of saying my son has some severe illness or is lactose intolerant, he said my son has Toddler's Diarrhea! I have never heard of such a thing. Apparently it can be normal and can continue up until 4 years of age! Really diarrhea and blow outs for another 3 years, you're crazy! But I guess it is better then nothing at all, and I'm glad he isn't lactose intolerant, soy produtcs were making a hole in my wallet. So has anyone ever heard of Toddler's Diarrhea, and if so how did you treat it??? Thanks!
