|For everyone that has read my story about my little 8 week old that has had a funny type 'diaper rash/sores" in between her butt cheeks and 20-30+ poopy diapers a day since she was 1 week old. After constant persistance with her original pediatrician and finally switching drs. midstream for a second opinion AND 3 stool tests (3rd test requested by me in the ER last Sat.)...we finally have an answer to our 30+ poops a day....a STAPH infection in her intestines. Thank GOD for giving me the strength and courage to keep persuing this. God only knows what would have happened if I would have listened to her original dr who told me this was normal and not to worry.(I listened to her for 4 weeks then decided I needed a 2nd opinion) My mothering instincts have never been wrong before and I am so thankful I listened to my instincts rather than a dr. I hope my problem/story is helpful to other mothers on this forum. I have learned from this to never 2nd guess yourself and if you as a mother think there is something wrong...more than likely there is...dont give up and listen to your instincts and your baby. Nobody knows your baby the way you do. I have to say that n]being a mother is absolutely best thing in the world!!!
Thanks again to all of for your support, kind words, helpful advice and most of all friendship. This circle of moms here on this forum helped me through a tough time. I Love all of you!!!
