I am hoping to get some reassurance that everything is "normal" here.
My son is 14 weeks old and is exclusively BF. He has sensitivities to cows milk, wheat, and nuts. With the cows milk and wheat he will occasionally have bloody stool and with the nuts he gets VERY fussy, but as long as i watch what i eat everything is fine!
He is a very happy little guy who very rarely cries. He is now a whopping 16 pounds and is all smiles and coos.
Here is my concern. The consistency of his poo is very watery. Always has been. I asked early on at the ped. and they said there was nothing to worry about as long as he gains weight and is developing well. Since that 6 week check-up i have not been back. ( I have decided not to attend the "well-baby" visits in order to keep my boy well. )
Anyway, i have read many places that BF poo is like seedy-mustard. My sons poo has always been mustard yellow but no seeds EVER. Just very watery and sometimes when it first comes out foamy. (I appologize for the graphic visual)
Should i worry or is this considered "normal" in the BF poo world?
I appreciate any and all responses.
