Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Constant messy diapers

My almost 16 month old son has messy diapers SO often lately...they are usually runny and don't contain ALOT but I, just wondering if its normal. He is currently on the tail end of an ear infection and unfortunately a diaper rash so I figured they could all be connected. Just looking for reassurance!

  • I'd say connected, esp if he is on an antibiotic.

  • DS went through a phase where he constantly had messy diapers around that time.  When you say runny, do you mean just not solid balls of poop, or...it will run off the diaper if you tip it runny?  If it's the latter there's probably something else going on, as PPers mentioned.

    Our pedi mentioned this could be an issue around this time and to expect moderate and frequent softer stools. She said it should just be a phase though.

  • The antibiotic could be the culprit. With my daughter, teething can also cause messy diapers as well as if she is in the heat for an extended time.
