My child was screaming in pain. When I tried to nurse him, he would gag and vomit. The vomit was different than normal baby spit up. He was pale and he would suddenly get super tired and just lay still in our arms. Then we checked his diaper and it was covered in bright red blood. He was then diagnosed with intussusception.

She has abdominal pain that lasts 15-20 sec. and repeats every 10-15 minutes. After the pain goes away she is back to normal again, but when the pain starts she drops everything and cries from pain.
