Blood in stool. What's a mom to do?
by Lulu's mommy
At four months old my baby's poop turned mucousy, foamy, and green with streaks of blood. Dr. Ran test to make sure it wasn't an infection and the test results came back negative.
After cutting dairy, soy, eggs, and nuts out of my diet I started seeing a little improvement, but still occasional streaks of blood and mucus. Continuing the diet for two months still saw some blood and
Dr. Took another stool sample and said looks like possible lactose intolerance. GI Dr. Told me to put my baby on Neocate and stop breastfeeding. I should also mention that baby has about 15 or so wet diapers a day while breastfeeding, but only 6-7 on Neocate.
I don't want to give up breastfeeding. Baby seems fussy on Neocate but not on my breastmilk. She used to be such a happy baby when breastfed. Any suggestions would be helpful.
