Toddler rash

Hi,


I'm 12 weeks pregnant, and breastfeeding my 15 months old.

The past few days I notice he got a rash all around his body. It's not itchy, but he's full of it. Could it be due to the hormones?

I also noticed he started to drink a bit less the past few weeks, and switches from side to side quite often (after a few zips), like trying to figure out which side is better. He never did that before, and I was wondering if it had anything to do with a change in the taste of the milk. Anything I can do to make sure he keeps on enjoying it? I drink already 2+ liters of water, but maybe a good idea to start increase it towards 3?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The rash could be hormones, but if it persists I recommend that you see a doc about it. Hormones will usually result in tiny pimples, not a rash. It could be something new in your diet that your baby is a little sensitive to.

Your milk will change into colostrum, closer to the birth of your baby. And like you said, the taste of the milk will change. There is no way for you to prevent this. Water is not going to make a difference.

I have heard of mothers consuming garlic to improve the flavor of the milk. Its worth a try.

no stool
by: Tracy

Hi

How long did your baby go without a bowel movement? It is normal for a breastfed baby to have a stool every 7 to 10 days. Your doctor might not know this. Your baby may be allergic to the meds.
As long as the stool is not hard and causing baby discomfort.

possible reasons for baby's rash
by: Tracy

Hi,

Things that may cause a rash could include one or more of the following:

* Hormones do sometimes cause a rash or a fine acne in babies. It should disappear on its own. This type of acne is completely harmless and explained more here under "baby acne".

* Babies that arrive a little late sometimes have patches on their skin that resemble sunburn.

* There is something called Erythema Toxicum which looks like insect bites. This is harmless and will also disappear on its own.

* Mothers may notice tiny white bumps on their babies faces. This is caused by a condition called Milia. This is not serious and is just the baby's skin trying to release excess oil. As they grow, their skin develops and can therefore better deal with the excess oil.

* There are pinkish patches called angel kisses or stalk bites, these are often found between the eye brows or at the back of the neck. The cause of these being the exposure to the mother's hormones while in the womb. These usually fade quite quickly.
