baby poop vs. diarrhea AllieRichie 3 kids; Pennsylvania 13 posts

Is there a difference between that crazy baby poop and diarrhea? My husband AND 2 kids both have some stomach bug and were going to the bathroom all day yesterday. I have obviously kept my youngest (preemie, about 2 months old now) away from all of them, but I am just paranoid about his poop. Is there are distinctive physical appearance between baby poo and diarrhea? Does a newborn ever get diarrhea?

Babies poop is supposed to be like peanut butter. If it looks any different than call a doc.

Yes your baby can get sick from even being in the same house..
I got a stomach bug and my baby sitter came and took my son for the day and he still got it..

It was really waterery.. It was trying to curdle, but it couldnt and looked like scrambled watery eggs (tmi)
