Re: Allergy and Oversupply
Welcome to the forum! Your doc was right- blood in the stool can indicate allergy. But it can ALSO be a symptom of oversupply, and many moms with oversupply end up doing unnecessary elimination diets. Do you think oversupply might be a problem for you? And how much blood are you seeing in your baby's diaper? Specks and streaks? And how often are you seeing it? Is it every diaper change or just some of them?
Don't let this issue get you too worried. It is possible to nurse through bloody stools, and they will probably eventually go away even if you do nothing about them. If you do need to do an elimination diet, you will find plenty of knowledgeable help here.
