Your son might have diarrhea because of his recent antibiotic use. This is a notorious side-effect with any antibiotic. I'm willing to bet it'll clear up on its own once the anbiotics are out of his system.
As far as you go, it'll get easier; you'll figure out your triggers and be able to make super-quick pit stops anywhere! Let us know how it goes...
thanks. that's what his pediatrician thinks too, but how long will it take to get antibiotics out of his system? he had them about 9 days ago. it was just a small IV drip on Friday night. So it wasn't more than one day on em.
I was researching some info to see if i could find anything on www.kellymom.com (great breastfeeding site) and i read about how u express bile-salt stimulated lipase in ur breast milk and it helps break down the fats in the milk for your baby. I then googled it to find any info. this is what i found
Bile salt-stimulated lipase (BSSL) is a LeX-carrying glycoprotein (27) secreted by the pancreas and activated by bile salts in the intestine. BSSL is also expressed by the mammary gland and present in human milk (4) at a concentration of between 100 and 200 μg/ml (42). Neonates normally secrete only small amounts of colipase-dependent pancreatic lipase into the duodenum (14), so gastric lipase as well as BSSL in human milk markedly enhances fat digestion in the newborn (3). Pancreatic BSSL and human milk BSSL were shown to be identical at the amino acid level (19, 31) while substantially varying in their carbohydrate contents (26, 43), with LeX being present at the C terminus of BSSL (20, 27). BSSL is also present in testes and adrenals (21) and blood plasma of humans (25). BSSL is produced by stimulated macrophages (22) and eosinophils (15), and its activity has been detected in endothelial cells (23), aortic homogenate (39), and human placenta (7).
Hmm...that paragraph explained what BSSL is, but not how its presence may or may not have an effect on the baby's digestive tract clinically.
You said your baby had two days of solid stools? Were this recently? Is he having diarrhea currently?
