I apologize in advance for the bad images this post may conjure. My son is 19 months old now. He has frequent bouts of diarrhea. It's chronic. It's something that occurs over a couple of days every couple of weeks. We've tried altering his diet, cutting dairy, using coulturelle to help contain this but to no avail. What makes it worse is that our daycare provider says she is at the end of her patience with us and our kid, complaining that my son craps out if his diaper which ruins her carpet and her clothes (not to mention his) and that, because of these things,he demands more if her time. We are planning to visit a pediatric GI doctor, but we are also very concerned that if our daycare provider drops us, he won't have a place to go and neither my wife and I can afford to stay home with him, we don't have family to provide day care, and other places would probably be hesitant to take him knowing this. If you've had kids with this or know someone with the same thing , what did you do? Again, this is not an ever now and then occurrence, but a frequent one so the BRAT diet is really not going to help. Thanks.
P.s. I'd appreciate hearing only from those who genuinely have an interest in helping me, not from some people on oc.net who like to make jokes at my expense. This is about my son. Insult me someplace else.
