Hi ladies. A little history: When DS was 2 weeks old, he started having blood on top of his stool, and it only happened after it was on his last poop when he was finished going (sorry...TMI). The doctor switched him from Milk-based formula to soy, then soy to Nutramigen, and then finally Alimentum (since DS liked the taste better). The doctor only gave us five days on the soy before putting DS on Nutramigen/Alimentum. After that, he concluded that DS had MSPI. However, when I made the switch to Alimentum, I noticed that DS had some bad diaper rash that would bleed when wiped which would sometimes get on the poop.
I guess I'm just wondering if there is a better way to test for MSPI? DS was never colicky and did not have any of the other MSPI symptoms aside from the blood on the surface of the poop. I have a feeling that he really doesn't have a food allergy but the pedi seems content with that diagnosis.
While DS has been well on Alimentum, I would like to see if I could eventually get him on milk-based formula if that is possible. At 4 months, should I consider getting a second opinion?
Thanks in advance for your help!
