So, all of a sudden? or were your symptoms somewhat changed/increasing and then diarrhea?
Hormonal changes + stress from having a baby can easily head one into a flare.
You're not on rectal meds, I'd suggest them anyway since a "bug" can have your autoimmune system triggered...you're already having diarrhea.
Oh, did your baby just have an immunisation?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
