I posted this in food allergies and sensitivities also.
Will try to keep this short and sweet. Since one month, DD2 has had disgusting, foul smelling, mucus filled diapers on and off (posted before about this). I am convinced that she minimally has a dairy allergy. Doctor doesn't believe me, even after having her diaper tested and it came back negative for viruses, bacteria, pathogens, etc. Now he thinks her system is "out of whack" and has put her on probiotics. He also believes adding solids to her diet will change her stool issues. OK, it has SOME, but not enough. Regardless of my worry, he has even recommended giving her yogurt!
So here's my question. I am determined to find an answer, and I plan to take her to an allergist or a GI doctor...who would be the better of the two to start with? I am leaning towards the GI. She's six months and is tiny. Poor weight gain. According to the doc she didn't even grow in length between her four month and six month checkup...personally, I think the nurse mismeasured her at 4 months as her footed clothes are now too short. Her head grew, but she only gained a pound. I am freaking out!
We've had feeding issues too (seen IBCLC, ENT, etc.) and some of that has improved; but the stool issue is not, and I am at my wit's end. Can't watch my baby go through this. Am also looking for a new pediatrician....he's kind, but I don't feel like he's all that up to date on BF.
