All, When my five-year-old came out of her room from her nap on Friday, she was pantsless and pieces of the disposable diaper she naps in were spread all over the room. I vacuumed them up and didn't think much about it -- she has a severe language delay and other neurological challenges so couldn't tell me what had happened. But now I'm concerned she may have eaten the disposable diaper. She's bad about chewing on paper, crayons, et cetera, and since Saturday morning, her poops have been green and grainy, very unusual for her. She isn't running a fever, and she is eating, drinking, and playing normally right now (Sunday afternoon), so I'm not panicking at the moment. But I'm curious to know if others have had experience with this. I'm planning to call the pediatrician tomorrow, but if anyone knows of any reasons I should so anything more urgently, please let me know. Thanks!View Thread
