Is my baby alergic to breast milk?
My baby was 2 weeks when I put him on formula because I wasn't getting enough breastmilk.
I realized he was so much constipated after 3 days so I stopped the formula after on the 7th day. He was able to poop but still strains and cries a lot.
He really passes gas while stretching. Went for an xray and he was full of gas. I stopped taking dairy products and eventually the excessive gas stopped. Still as soon as he swallows breastmilk there is very large bowel sounds, he still stretches though, but passes very light stool.
He is 2 months. I'm now asked to stop breastfeeding while giving him protein sensitive formula (Alimentum ) but making him constipated.
Wen I added the breastmilk again on the 2 day of the formula he was able to pass watery stool,then mucoid.
Could it be that my baby is allergic to the breastmilk?
