Background: Baby is 7.5 weeks old. He is a happy baby and is gaining well. We battled green poops early on but block feeding solved that issue.
Over the past 2 days or so, he has had at least one diaper daily with little specks of blood. The poop is mustard yellow but there is mucus (he is a very drooly baby though). He also has raw skin around his anus and redness between his butt cheeks.
The only change in my diet is that I have consumed much more caffeine over the past several days. It should be noted that I ingested NO caffeine during my pregnancy.
Can caffeine cause these symptoms? I have stopped caffeine again and will watch the rash (and will call doctor if it has not gotten even slightly better by Monday).
Thanks in advance!
