My 7 week old daughter has been having mucousy green stools, spitting up a lot (also somewhat mucousy). She spits up after eating, between meals, in her sleep. She also has a rash - its mostly on the side of her face and neck, the side she sleeps on. Its a bumpy rough red rash. She's starting to get the rough feeling on her legs though, a little on her belly.<br><br>
I'm mostly dairy & egg free (I have an egg sensitivity/allergy that appeared a few years ago, and I'm lactose intolerant). There's not a lot of soy in my diet either. I have been eating a fair amount of wheat bran & nuts though.<br><br>
Does this sound like a food sensitivity? My other thought was a foremilk/hindmilk imballance....

green poop could be either allergy or the f/h milk imballance, but the rash makes me think it's an allergy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> cut out all your dairy and eggs. if it's not better in a month or so, I'd cut out nuts or wheat, depending on if you have a gut feeling. my gut always told me to be cautios w/ nuts and it turns out dd is allergic to peanuts, so I'm a strong believer in listening to the gut.

milk and soy are the most common offenders. my son is milk/soy protein intolerant, as are many, many babes! i would cut out all dairy and soy. i would worry about eggs, nuts and wheat after that.

Ok, cutting out dairy & eggs should be really easy.....there isn't any in my diet that I know of, but I'm sure there's something hiding somewhere.<br><br>
Cutting out all traces of soy is going to be tougher.....I've never paid any attention to what its in.<br><br>
Thanks for the suggestions <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm not sure about the mucousy stools/spit up. Could be something???<br><br>
But the rash is definitely an allergy/sensitivity. It may not be related something she's eating, though, or it could be a combination of foods/environment/products. It's tough. You could start with foods and see if there is an improvement (especially considering the mucous). Wheat and nuts are also common allergens.
