Here is a picture that Maryam took of herself. Funny, huh? Silly baby. We're on day 2 of really bad diarrhea and diaper rash. This is only Maryam's 2nd diaper rash of her life. She's not handling it well at all. Every time she goes, she cries out in pain, I feel horrible. My biggest concern is dehydration. Last time she got a stomach flu and diarrhea she was nearly hospitalized for dehydration. Now I know how to help her avoid it. I've d/c'd her formula and have her on Pedialite until the diarrhea stops. I thought it had stopped and we fed her the Pediasure and boy was that a mistake. Luckily she isn't feverish so I'm not going to take her to the doctor until she is either dehydrated or the diarrhea doesn't stop in the next day or two. Wish us luck!
