My 2 week old started two days ago having bloody stools. Some just 1 or 2 strings of blood other times it seems as though the stool is stained blood colored like it would be if a wet diaper were beet colored. His wet diapers are fine though. Im going to give a sample of stool to a lab, but in the meantime, im just trying to figure it out myself so he can feel better. He started a diaper rash about a week ago, and at the same time became very fussy after eating or having a bowel movement.
I dont eat dairy, and since the blood started, two days ago, have eliminated wheat and eggs. Could it also be a healthy fiber rich diet thats hurting him? Hes had 6 bloody stools in 2 days and has approximately a bowel movement after every feeding, 8-12 in a day.
I know it can be normal, but i dont like him in pain, nor the high amount of bloody stools.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Any suggestions that could help us? Im just really concerned....
