i want to see if anyone has any ideas.
DD nursed and nursed and got smaller and smaller---etc...finally after trialing milk formula- after only ONE bottle--she got blood in her stool and mucous. pulled her off that--(I have/had stayed off milk her entire life nursing because my other 2 kids have problems with it)----so at 9 months she was 12lbs-- (was 14 at 3 month)----so we added Neocate.. and she has gained 5 lbs since then in a little over a month!!! ---anyways---back to when we started neocate- - we did do one container of Ellecare and then I found out it has GMO--so we switched to Neocate. a couple days after we started Ellecare she got a bum rash---I figured of COURSE there's a PH difference between just breastmilk and neocate...it continued. then stopped for a bit---we pulled her off solids to get her to grow (she threw up to banana and avacado- so we wanted to be sure she grew and wasn't getting any allergens)--
okay so she has thrived on Neocate and such and finally her body got used to it---so a week or so ago I tried adding solids again---which I desperately want to do. ---Neocate is SOOO expensive and at a year the less of it we can give her the better (money wise-) but I obviously want to do what's best for her. before the neocate we were slowly introducing solids and she was loving it and wanting it. ---1st off she didn't want the solids---and MUST have an overactive gag reflux too because she gags stuff (which is why I'm unsure if it's the texture of the avacado/banana or an allergy)- and then she gets a bleeding bum (from poo contact) to stuff---and just this week she it seemed she ate all the things w had cleared (peas, sweet potato, plum, pumpkin)- and her PEE turned acidic or something---wherever her pee touched it was raw and red---it has taken a couple days for that to stop... NOW I don't know what to do---she hasn't had solids in a couple days and today she had mucous in her stool--all she's had is the Neocate.
Help me! any ideas?!! I'm worried she'll never eat solids--does neocate make it harder for the body to tolerate them? or do you think she just has extensive damage. the only thing I can think of is probiotics!?!??
I make homeade coconut milk yogurt with gi pro probiotic starter--should I try that or something else? will you link to some dairy safe ones?!!
how could she be born with such a HORRIBLE gut?! I mean--just 1 bottle of milk formula she got blood in her stools and mucous?! I had never had dairy for the 9 months that I exclusively nursed her until then..hmmm any insight? anything?!!
