  • I wouldn't try to give him juice, sometimes juice can make it worse. He might take watered down sprite or ginger ale. Definately need to keep him hydrated. Popcicles are good, pedialyte makes some. Has he had anything different or new in his diet? Might need to call the doc if it persists, or if the baby gets a bad rash from it. The doc could call in some cream or powder to make it better.

  • Has he eaten anything new? Have you fed him anything that is yellowish, such as squash? It could be that or it could be that neurovirus that's going around (my dd had it and it turned her BM yellow, but she was also throwing up and had a fever). I would call the pediatrician. Keep working on those fluids momma!
