Hello ladies I've posted in various threads about a problem I've been having with my breastfed baby but thought I'd start a new one in case people going through a similar experience has missed this. I exclusively breastfeed my 3.5 months old baby. From about 6 weeks he started having the odd green mucusy stool, which rapidly became every stool. I went to the doctor, who thought it was a foremilk/hindmilk issue. About 2 weeks after that I noticed a v small amount of blood mixed in. I freaked and took him to Accident & emergency in hospital. They were not overly concerned after examining him (touching his tummy, listening to his breathing) and asking me lots of questions. They thought it was a virus and to let him get over it and the blood should subside in 2-3 days. It didnt. I returned and they thought it may be a milk allergy intolerance. I therefore cut out all dairy and soy and within 48 hrs I saw the first yellow nappy in weeks. I was ecstatic to day the least! The stools also became less mucusy. I was booked in to meet the paediatric consultant and I advised him if the developments. She felt this was enough to confirm a milk protein intolerance. I was told to wait 4-6 weeks and to reintroduce dairy to see if it was indeed that. I got discharged. 6 weeks on and my baby's stools are still mucusy and I see the odd speck of blood every few days. Admittedly it may be because I have tried soy now and then by accident. I returned to my gp who said it could be that his gut is still irritated and simply needs time to heal. My baby us putting on weight (initially following 9th percentile and recently moving towards the 25th. He is also a very happy baby and developmentally doing very well so far. Therefore the docs aren't overly worried about this. My concern is that despite the dairy elimination, his stools have stopped improving in consistency and blood specks. Initially there was a huge improvement and then it plateaued. I'm wondering if he is also allergic to other things and I've read some cut out eggs, wheat, nuts etc etc. whilst I'm willing to do anything for my son, I'm hesitant to cut out so many things as I'm worried it will affect my nutrition and thus the quality if my milk for my baby. I'm also wondering if the initial hindmilk foremilk imbalance has some merit as I've read prolonged imbalance can irritate the gut, leading to blood specks. My baby nurses from both sides each time (he drains one side after 10 mins it seems) and sometimes he pulls off then frantically tries to latch on again. He also poops immediately after a feed. He also poops really frequently. Varies 4-6 times a day, sometimes more. Which the dietician I saw said it a bit much for his age. It's also v runny and hardly ever seedy, though occasionally curdy looking. He's fartsa bit but I wouldn't say it's excessive. He spits up but I wouldn't say it's vomiting as not projectile. Does anybody have a similar experience to share? Thank you for reading.
