My son keeps gettin diareaha lately could it be the juice??

He goes through so many diapers everyday bc he poos so much. It can be a little or alot at times. My mother in law thinks its the juice but i use half water and half juice. I wonder if its just teething bc he's been real grouchy latelyand pulling at his ears. Is there any suggestions yall may have that can help me?? He doesnt like water just punch juice ad milk and other stuff thats bad for him...of course but he doesnt get it.

  • Idk how old he is, but if he's under a year old, he should only be on milk. At any age, kids need to be limited on juice because of the natural sugar content - YES even 100% juice and I don't think your son is on 100% juice because you said fruit punch but I could be wrong. It's good to dilute it, but they still do not need very much of it. With my 3 kids and every kid I ever babysat, I limited it to only 4 ounces of juice - even diluted.
    As for the rash, the A&D isn't working. If it was, it would have CLEARED up the rash. The BEST thing to use for a diaper rash of any kind, especially the bad kind is the cream used for athlete's foot. The reason is that athlete's foot is a yeast infection which is fungal and that is also what a diaper rash is. If you use this for about three diaper changes, you WILL see a MAJOR improvement!!

  • Have you ruled out milk products? With my daughter it was milk. For my sisters little girl it was the red food coloring in juice and jello.

  • I would cut out juice completely. There really isn't a need for it but if you want to give him some, make sure that he is only getting 4 oz per day.
