The owner of my local children's store suggested I reach out to the mothering.com community for help. My son is 10 weeks old is breastfeeding exclusively, and for the 6 weeks has had very green/brown liquidy, frothy, poops (in the diaper they kind of look like loose jelly), and pooping 4-6x every day. I never had this problem with breastfeeding my daughter, who is now 3.
A lactation consultant said it was a foremilk-hindmilk issue, and recommended block feeding, with 1 breast per feeding. This sounded right to me because I had oversupply issues, so I've been block feeding for the past month, but his poops are the same. At the 2 month appt, my pediatrician said the poops were most likely due to a dairy allergy, so I cut out all dairy 2 weeks ago, even the "hidden" dairy. Though he is less gassy now, my son's diapers are still very green (though less brown).
Any tips on what I can do next to help his stomach and fix the poops? I'm not sure what to do next to help him. Harry is a happy, mellow baby, and not colicky at all, so I don't think he is in pain. But I can't imagine that it is comfortable for him to have diarrhea all the time. My family thinks I should quit breastfeeding and offer formula, but I'm not ready/willing to do that.
