C-diff infection often causes belly pain and diarrhea and can be very hard to treat with medicine. One of the possible reasons that C-diff infection is hard to treat is because there is too much "bad" bacteria in the colon. Investigators believe that putting more "good" bacteria into the colon will help fight the "bad" bacteria. We do this by doing a fecal (poop) transplant.
Fecal transplant has been done at other hospitals, but not at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Since our Investigators have not done this before, this study will help us learn the best way to do the transplant. Investigators also believe this transplant might help improve symptoms for patients with C-diff.

Experimental: Fecal Microbiota Transplantation
250 ml of a fecal suspension diluted in saline given by colonoscopy or enema.
Biological: Fecal Microbiota Transplantation
250 ml of a fecal suspension diluted in saline will be administered via colonoscopy or enema in patients with recurrent c-diff.
- Resolution of C. difficile [ Time Frame: 6 months post transplant ]The primary objective of the study is to establish the cure rate of C. difficile infection in pediatric patients.
- Adverse events [ Time Frame: Six months post transplant ]Follow up phone calls will be made at days 1, 7, 14, and months 1 and 6 to determine whether adverse events have occurred.
