    9 Month Old suddely with fishy smelling poop??

    Okay Parents... Please HELP!!
    My 9 month old son is suddenly having fishy smelling bowel movements, and he keeps getting diaper rash. I haven't changed anything...foods, diapers, juices, formula, or bath wash.

    Is this normal?? Please help!!

    My son is four and has not had this experience. However, my first thought would be, even if you haven't changed his diet, maybe one of the products he eats or uses has changed. Now would be a good time to try something different. And maybe just one thing at a time.

    I have the same thing with my son and he's 11 months old and I think it's his teething bowels. Just my guess tho.
