my dd just turned 8 months old. she is EBF. I have had to cut out dairy because she was spitting up a TON. it has gotten much better since giving it up. she is a very easy going baby, always happy, rarely crying. the sweetest little thing. at her 6 month appointment with the ped, she kinda fell off her curve (she was in the 85% for weight and went to 65%). her height has always been on the short side. the ped wanted her to come back for an 8 month checkup instead of 9 months to make sure she is growing and not falling off the curve more. i have not weighed her since but she still has fat legs and the cutest chunky butt with cellulite, so i'm thinking she is not undernourished.
so here is my problem.... my diet is the same as it has always been except for no dairy. she spits up WAY less. her only thing is that she does not poop for like 2-3 days and then when she does poop, it is all liquid with no substance to it and she gets a nasty rash with it. I can't start her on any foods because I wouldn't be able to tell if she has a rash from her poop or from the food. she acts the same, not in any distress but her poops are toxic apparently.
any ideas? should i eliminate anything else from my diet? I just want her little tush to be completely rash free and her poops to be normal. her poops before this happened (which this has been going on for about 2 months) were green and flecky, sometimes a mustardy-brown.
