At DD's 2yr checkup, she had been having diarrhea and loose stool for 2 weeks. The doctor said it was a stomach bug that has been going around, focus on fluids and the BRAT diet(which I had already been doing). He also said to cut out diary and sugar, which I did too. Well, its going on almost 5 weeks now and hasnt gone away. In fact, I have caught her stomach bug 4 times now. Each time it only lasts 2-3 days, but is a horrible couple of days.
I know its not the water, because we have lived here nearly 6 months and this is the first we have had problems. Its not the diet, because the symptoms didnt change when I changed the diet. A few other parents in the area have mentioned their kid has this problem too, but the doctors cant do anything about it and tell them the same thing they told me.
Should I make an appointment? For me or her? Or both? It doesnt seem to cause her as much discomfort as I am having. The only symptom we have is upset stomach and diarrhea.
