I have a 4 month old who has had diarrhea for 12 days. BMs are about 8 times a day, watery with a few 'chopped spinach-like' chunks, lots of gas. No other symptoms like fever or rashes. Breast milk only. No sudden change in my diet, although we started giving a small quantity of probiotics daily on Jan 3rd for general wellness, as recommended by doctor. It all started quite clearly on January 7th.
I talked to our doctor today (ND). She suggested stopping the probiotics, a possible sensitivity to dairy, or to acid foods in my diet. Mentioned a possible fore/hindmilk imbalance, but seemed to discard that idea since I am not pumping or having any leaking between feedings. She does not think it is due to a virus/bacteria.
It's just that none of these ideas seem to quite line up for me.
Probiotics - she assured me that these would not affect her digestion before I agreed to start them (argh!)
Sensitivities - sudden onset?? Maybe the acid foods, since I think we bought a box of clementines around then....
hind/foremilk - again, sudden onset? increased frequency of BMs?
So, I'm stopping the probiotics and watching my acid intake.... But does anyone have any insight here? What does this sound like to you?
