Hi everyone. I have a 9 week old EBF son and he has had some symptoms and everything I've been reading points to possible food allergies. I would really like to hear your thoughts.
LO has started spitting up what seems like a lot after almost every feeding. It's usually very slimy (maybe mucus).
A week ago his poops changed from normal seedy to liquid/slimy, I'm assuming it's mucus. He constantly poops a little bit at a time, so there is pretty much always a little poop in his diaper at every change. This is contributing to diaper rash around his anus that I have been dealing with for weeks.
At least once a day he has a green mucus poop.
He's also had baby acne since he was just a few days old.
I don't think he is overly fussy and for the most part seems happy, though he does get gassy at night and grunts and strains in his sleep.
Really it's the spitting up and possible mucus and rash that really bother me. I'm going to put a call in on Monday to see what the dr thnks, but is there anything else I should be on the look out for?
I did start eating eggs more around the time the mucus poops started, could that be a connection, humm. But the rash has been there for a while. Also, I'm a vegetarian, I drink almond milk and use almond butter. I cut out dairy a week ago, but may have had hidden dairy and have not been paying attention to soy. Ugh. Sorry I'm all over the place. Thanks for reading!
