Re: Blood in stool
I don't know if anyone knows the answer to this question. I personally feel that the "when" questions- like "when will my baby's poops go back to normal?" or "when will my baby go longer than 20 minutes without nursing?" etc.- are the hardest ones to answer, because every mom, every baby, and every nursing journey is so individual. If anecdotal evidence means anything, then my experience was that my baby had green and bloody poops intermittently for several months after my supply had more or less adjusted to the proper level.
- if indeed this is the issue of lactose overdose, how long does it take for the blood to stop once the supply has been regulated. I have been having a fairly regulated spell lately, but the blood continues. I am wondering if I need to be more patient. Potentially give time for the internals to heal? Not sure just speculating. What has been your experience?
I personally don't think that moms should eliminate even the top allergens without additional evidence of the baby having a problem. When baby is happy, healthy, and growing appropriately, then I think that green and/or bloody poops are something to watch, but not something to freak out about. This is particularly true when a mom knows she has an oversupply issue- it's so much more likely that your baby's poop issue is caused by oversupply than by allergy that I don't see any reason to throw yourself down the elimination diet rabbit hole.
- The other option could be potentially allergies to other things (soy, etc..) Perhaps I should do a trial on those
