Diarrhea

This morning Sarah woke up earlier than her usual time. After she had her milk and when I thought to put her back to sleep, suddenly she farts and just cried out loud. So, my husband quickly applies some Ru Yi Oil on her stomach.

She had a short sleep and woke up again after that. When I checked on her diaper, I noticed that she had loose stool.

Sarah was okay when we were visiting the zoo (will share more stories on my next post), but when we reached home, again I found she had poo poo in the diaper.

Throughout the day, actually she was as active and cheerful as her normal self. But she will purge after she had meal, including her formula milk.

We brought her to see doctor but according to him, her stomach is not gassy. So we suspect that maybe it is the restaurant that we patron yesterday not hygienic enough, especially their butter and kaya toast. My husband also got diarrhea immediate after he came back from the meal.

She just eaten the medicine that helps to harden the stool and Oral Rehydration Salt at this moment, I will just let her to drink milk which advised by doctor to water down the content and stop her from taking other solid food.

Hopefully she can sleep well through the night and she could recover by tomorrow.

oh dear ... poor Sarah, hope she will be fine after taking her medicine ya.

Sometimes it's very hard to control also if we were not the one who cook the meals ya ...... but I am glad that she is not affected despite having diarrhea. But last time my doc advice me to feed Angel soy milk instead of cow milk when she is having diarrhea as not to burden her tummy.

Good thing she's still her normal self. As long as she's still drinking liquid (milk, water, etc), shld be fine. Moreover, the salt will ensure she's not dehydrated. Hope she'll ok by tmw.

I am so touched after seeing so many mommies concern about Sarah.

To Caroline, Jess, Ling, Mommy Gwen, Slavemom, Olive, Fussy Mum, Vivi, Mommy Moon, Yen Ping, Doreen, Kristie, Kylie, Natalia, Rachel and HN
THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I just brought Sarah to see the paed. According to her, she might got infections, since kids likes to put everything into their mouth. So she has asked to stop the medicine (to harden the poo2) that given by the GP. Now she has prescribed probiotic for Sarah.
- Anyway, Sarah just looked okay. She is still very active, walking, jumping and running in the house.

Kristie - Jayden having constipation lately? Maybe he has not consume enuf water.
- I also hope that Jayden will be ok.
- My husband is ok now. Thanks for your concern.

Olive - Thanks for your concern. My husband is ok now.
- Yalor, I think I have to black list that restaurant, hehe.

Caroline - Yalor, I also heard before that better to stop consume cow milk if diarrhea persist, but the GP did not advice us to do so. So when I water down the content of the milk, Sarah doesnt want to drink it. Cham mor...So I just resume the water content like normal now.
