    NEED to post this. For the last about 5 days Caitlyn has woken up nearly head to toe in Poo. It's absolutely disgusting. I'm getting a bit fed up of having to change the sheets every day and having to scrape poo off her every morning. It's not doing her poor little bum any good either.

    I've tried size 4 nappies and they don't help either. She's had really runny poo lately.

    Anyone had this experience and does anyone have any advice? Any special night time nappies or anything?

    She does sleep through the night so maybe i should wake her and change her?

    yikes! I haven't tried any of the night time ones so really can't recommend a brand. The watery part sounds off to me though...have you had it checked (sorry if you've said elsewhere--my memory's not great these days :blush:)

    Hannah does have the occassional watery poo but it's not often and usually after she's had a big poo that's not watery (TMI sorry)

    just ask at the doctors for an emergency appointment they have to give you one as shes only a baby my son went through this and he ruined so many clothes etc it was a nightmare try putting them on tighter or maybe try the size down ?

    Got the same problem here, Ruby's have always been on the runnier side and since she's started teething it's worse, is Caitlyn teething? You shouldn't have to wait a month for an appointment if it's a baby and you are concerned about her.

    I just have to try and put them on as far up her back as I can. x

    runny poo can be quite serious as they can get dehydrated !!! So yes, I think if its that bad and has been for a few days now you should be able to get an appointment.

    I've found the best nappies are the Pampers Active Fit. They are expensive so I only use them at night time, but he goes in one at 8pm and stays in it until 6:30am and it hasn't leaked once. They just fit so well.

    Good luck, hope things improve.

    Well I decided to wake her up an hour early this morning and that solved the poo incident. She just got her bum changed, had some bottle then pooed but it stayed in as the nappy was more absorbent since it didn't have a whole nights worth or wee in it.

    get it checked if its still runny. I took Chloe to an emergency appointment with runny poo a couple of weeks ago and he was great said it could be nasty if it wasnt checked and sent a sample to be checked, he also gave er a thorough check as well. Turned out she just had a bit of a tummy upset that ran its course but I'm glad I took her

    I'm glad you found a way to solve it :)

    If it's still runny for some time then it wouldn't hurt to get it checked out,they'll just make sure her tummy isn't too upset.
