My son is 4 months old and has confirmed blood in stool (non-visible). His doctor ran lab work on it and is insistent that I quit ebfing because I have already cut out soy/dairy. I refuse to just give up breastfeeding so I am going to start a total elimination diet today. I feel terrible my son has blood in his stool but why would I switch him to formula before knowing what he may be allergic to? His pediatrician says its unnatural for him to have blood in his stool and that there is nothing I can do with breastfeeding that can help him. Has anyone successfully nursed through allergies? I just want to know if there is anyone who has tips on it or can answer these questions.
I drink coconut milk anyway, is that something I have to stop as well?
What fruits/veggies are safe?
How long did you wait before reintroducing foods and what foods did you start with?
