Lactose overload or dairy allergy?
My son couldn't latch for the first 2 weeks due to tongue tie, so I pumped and would get about 5 oz on each breast.
Now I'm able to breast feed, but he will only latch with a nipple shield. The first couple weeks I was able to breast feed he would act hungry continually and be on the boob all the time and very fussy.
Now I think my milk production has gone down due to supply and demand and I only pump a couple times a day and I get 2 or 3 oz on each side so I think I'm making less, but also that's after he has breast fed.
His whole life he's had a persistent diaper rash that gets so bad that it will bleed. I've tried lots of creams and nothing gets rid of it.
Yesterday he had green mucusy poop. He gets fussy in the evenings. He doesn't burp much, but he is flatulent. He spits up a small amount 2 to 4 times a day. But now he will eat for 15 to 20 min from 1 breast before stopping and it will feel soft, then I offer the other breast. So I don't know how it could be for milk hind milk imbalance.
Yesterday I thought it could be dairy allergy, so i cut out dairy yesterday and by last night, instead of pooping before during and after every diaper change" he went 3 diapers in a row with no poop.
Do you think this is dairy allergy or foremilk hindmilk imbalance?
