    I know I remember Vicki talking about stool color in kids with diarrhea. I have two problem children (doelings) about 2 weeks old, too young for it to be cocci I know. They have pasty light yellow colored diarrhea this AM, not normal newborn yellow. They are on goat milk. Not acting depressed yet, just trying to head off a problem before it escalates.

    Thanks

    2 week olds can have cocci I do believe.

    would pasty light be just maybe too much milk?

    Maybe I didn't catch it....are these 2 being bottle raised or dam raised.....and is the milk being heat treated if bottle raised. ?

    They are bottle raised on non heat treated milk right now. I gave Pig Pump (Spectinomycin) last night.

    Don't take this personal, but how clean are your nipples/bottles? And when you wash them are you sure to get all of the soap residue out? Mine typically get diarrea when my 14yr old son is in too big of a hurry, and doesn't get all of the soap rinsed out of the lambar!
