So I don't know what the deal is here. Hank has lots of green poop! I block feed. The diet's good. What gives? Usually in the mornings, it's nice and yellow, but throughout the day, it's green! What kind of poops are you guys getting?
Let's talk about poo!
What's weird is that the other poops seem more dark gold than yellow and not many seeds at all, though weight gain has been really good. It definitely doesn' t look like tje bright yellow poops DD had.
Soooo my kid explodes every few days. No poops in between, but after the explosion she'll sometimes have one or two smaller poops.
The initial explosion is yellow and seedy. The subsequent little poops are yellowish greenish (sometimes pea green) and seedy. The green (and infrequent pooping) would concern me, but she's gaining a ton of weight (she's like the Michelin man!) and I figure she's getting enough hindmilk!
I have found that if you are using sposies, the poop can look VERY different depending on what brand you are using.
Nico has poopy diapers about... 7 times a day. It's a lot. It's always yellow but the seediness depends on the time of day. It seems like if he goes a while without pooping, like when he first wakes up, it's more seedy. Sometimes it looks like nearly dry paint instead of seeds. He has wet only diapers another 4-5 times on top of that 7 dirty diaper changes... T_T and sometimes there are skid marks of yellow.
So I think I have it figured out. Hank is allergic to almonds. Ugh. Pretty much the worst possible scenario for a Paleo mama. There go my favorite snack of almond butter and apples, my Larabars, paleo pancakes and all of my beloved baked goods! Plus tree nut allergies are something kids don't usually grow out of. So bummed, but happy to have figured it out. I haven't had almonds in about three days and his poo has been perfect for the first time since he was a few days old! After doing some research, I feel like I probably caused it by eating so much almond butter that a lot of the proteins were secreted in my milk. They say that if you're asthmatic and allergic, your kids have a higher likelihood of developing food allergies and that you should avoid possible allergens in your diet toward the end of your pregnancy and in the first two weeks. I thought I was doing good by eating strict Paleo during those first few weeks. *sigh* Oh well...
Benji has gone from have 6 to 8 poops a day (the first few weeks), to 2 or 3 poops and now just recently we are on day 4 of no poop. His poos are yellow and seedy. I remember my DD would go 4 or 5 days and then have a very big poop (when she got older she would sometimes take her diaper off and leave me a surprise on the floor eeeek!).
I have never been diagnosed with food allergies but there are foods that I am sensitive to/don't digest well and when I get stomach upset Benji does too (wheat, nuts, dairy). I don't do those things often so when I do its very obvious. I didn't eat well yesterday and poor little guy is very gassy today :(
