Which one of these would be the most likely culprit with my daughters diarrhea? Mylanta or Axid or Nutramigen formula?

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
Are you sure it's diarrhea and not soft really runny poo???

Broken down formulas like Nutramigen, Alimentum, and Pregestimil, will produce very very soft poos. Alimentum actually made Jedd's poo turn a green color.

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
Nicole, What specific kind of Mylanta are you using, how much are you giving at a time, how many times a day, how many times a week, how old is your daughter and how much does she weigh? Sorry for all the questions but I need more info.

Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch.

Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
probably a combo of all of the above. as a mom who deals with a kid with chronic diarrhea- and i mean i deal with ish!- (this is the impression i get from all her doctors) it is only seriously a concern if there are 1 or all of 3 things: dehydration, blood/ mucus, more then 5 diapers an hour. watery diarrhea is usually the cause of the dehydration and more then 5 an hour. a virus could be the cause of that as well

i don't know how old your dd is but i would push clear fluids if you can and call the doctor to let them know a change in her stooling has occurred. they will further advise you want to take out or do next. good luck i hope it's nothing serious!

Nutramigen actually made my son's poo a little looser. It also was always green. We never had any runny stools with the mylanta or axid but every baby is different. Diarrhea is actually considered that if it's really really runny and frequently. It's so hard to determine when its diarrhea or not. Good luck on figuring it out.
Check with your
doctor first!
