HI! I'm looking for some advice about my babe. A bit of background: My first child who is now 3 had horrible colic and bloody poops-I eliminated soy and dairy and the colic and bloody poops resolved. I am currently tandem nursing.
I now have a 10 week old baby; during the last trimester of my pregnancy I eliminated dairy and soy and have not had either since her birth. Around 2 weeks of age she became extremely gassy and her poops turned green, she was still happy, just gassy and had difficulty sleeping due to tummy pain. I eliminated wheat, eggs, citrus, tomatoes, and peanuts in an effort to reduce her gas. After 2 weeks there was no improvement. I began eating normally because I was starving (I'm also a vegetarian) and she remained the same.
I had a huge oversupply so I stareted block feeding-sometimes up to 12 hours per breast. Still, no change.
All of a sudden at 7 weeks her poops turned yellow, but remained mucousy. She had one episode of blood in her poop at this time.
I stopped eating wheat, peanuts, and eggs as I eat these a lot.
At 9 weeks she was still so gassy and having trouble sleeping due to gas-she had the occasional green poop, and mucousy poops about 3-5 days a week.
I started her on biogaia probiotic 5 days ago and stopped yesterday as it wasn't helping and she seemed gassier after it.
Today she had another very mucousy poop with blood in it and she has woken up 4 times in the past 2 hours:(
What do I do????? I'm at my wits end and I feel like I'm hurting my baby by eating something that is bugging her. I just can't figure it out .
I should also mention that she was 8lb2 ounces at birth and 14 lbs 3 ounces at 9 weeks, so she is growing really well .
