Puking & Pooping - No Rhyme or Reason

Well, what the heck is going on in our house is beyond us. Since last Thursday/Friday, the boys have had diarrhea and puking every day and most days it's really quite random. I feel so bad for the little buggers, but the problem is, the don't seem sick at all. Aidan is really the one with the bad case of the poops, but it is getting better. It looks like he is getting all four of his top teeth at once...maybe that's it? I don't know...this is my first go. Brody had ABSOLUTELY NO problems with teething. Brody seems to have something wierd going on too. He's randomly projectile puking entire bottles. Reflux anyone? He usually only does it once a day, but it's really throwing a wrench into our week. They couldn't go to daycare on Monday...luckily our Friday sitter could cover. Yesterday Brody got sent home early from daycare, so although I swore I would not miss any work on this HUGE week for UWSP (see previous post), I did. Josh came home from work early so I could get to practice at 3, and when I picked Aidan up I found out Brody cannot return until it's been 24 hours since his puking incident even though the doctor does not believe he is sick with a stomach flu. UGHHH! So now, Brody got to come to work with mommy this morning because we really have no other options...my mom is busy with month end at work and Josh's parents are on vacation. Could this have happened on a better week? Oh well, hopefully today will be the last of our issues. Thursday the boys are home with daddy and my mom is coming up Friday for the weekend's games so we should be covered there. Anyways, that's what's going on in our house. If any mom's have any advice as to what might be going on that would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm....sounds like what the boys had. Our docs said it's a nasty virus going around (which affected my husband and I too). My boys had diarrhea for 11 days each and it smelled something AWUL...like a weird sour smell.

We had to give Brady Soy formula during the worst of it, otherwise we had to forge thru. I hope your dudes don't have this, and this will just pass quickly!!!

LOVE the gate pictures. I can actually hear them whinning :)

Wishing I had wisdom to share but we had the puke/poopies last week and well it just stinks (no pun intended). I love the gate pics. So cute!

I definitely noticed more runny poops when the boys were teething, so that might be it, at least thats what my mom and MIL said, so it made me feel better for all the nasty diapers I had to change :) BTW, the sippy cups with the straw are great, try them out with the boys. A nurse told me around 11 months babies can learn to suck from a straw, but if they don't learn then it won't be again until 15 months or something.

Not quite sure what is going on with the boys, but I know there is a really nasty bug going around. I hope they are better soon.

Love the picture of the 3 of your guys at the gate! Too cute!

Oh! Congrats on NCAA and best of luck!
