Toddler Diarrhea

I'm not going to write much about this topic; it's not a pleasant subject.
Julia had this predicament from May 5-13 and thankfully it is over!

OMG!

It is the most foul, literally, experience of having a child. So disgusting!
Julia was not a happy camper either. We were constantly changing her diaper and she hated it, too. Her room smelled awful! We had the fan going, the windows open, using essential oils to disfuse the stench.

No one talks about it, for good reason I suppose.
We weren't sure what was going on initially.
Then we referred to the trusty Internet for information.
We relied on the BART (banana, applesauce, rice, toast) system to minimize any gastro-intestinal related issues to Julia's food. That really helped settle her stomach and also to make sure she was getting some nourishment.

We are so glad Julia feels better.
