My baby's poo smells like vinegar Coast Guard Baby {JAS 08} 1 child; Kittery, Maine 1450 posts

I'm strictly breastfeeding right now and we've been working through Thrush and a food intolerance. But all of a sudden last night, her poops starting smelling of strong vinegar. Has anyone else heard of this? If you know of anything that might be causing this I'd appreciate. I've googled the internet and it seems pretty unheard of. Thanks ladies

My daughter gets that sometimes.. It's when she eats something she can't quite tolerate..

it's probably related ot the thrush or the medicine she's on for it ( if any) ..... as long a sit's not bothering her I'd give it a few days and see how things clear up. baby poop is all over the place ... there really is no "normal"

She might be a bit dehydrated. Cause Thats what happens to adults when they are slightly dehydrated their poop starts to smell like that.

Pulsating soft spots are very normal, sunken in soft spots not so normal;.
