My son is 8 weeks old and is having problems with blood in his poop. When I started breastfeeding him i always fed from one side each feeding. He had yellow seedy poop and did not have gas issues or strained while going. His pediatrician suggested that i feed from both breasts so i started doing that and thats when his poop started to change to green.
2/15/17 First time seeing blood in diaper with dark green spinach color poop. Pediatricians told me to go dairy free. I do this immediately and the redness on his cheeks go away and his clear baby soft skin is back.
3/1/17 Dr tested poop and theres still a streak of blood. She said I can either cut soy now or wait until she checks his poop again in 2 weeks. I decide to cut soy but yesterday i realized it can be listed under different names so i didn't truly cut out all soy
3/4/17 Blood in diaper with same green poop.
3/7/17 Blood in diaper (had beef for first time the night before). Decide to cut out beef.
I decide to go back to breastfeeding on one side so that he gets the hind milk and his poop goes back to seedy yellow and he no longer strains and cries when he has to go.
3/12/17 Blood in diaper (had oyster sauce night before- soy was not listed but i read most contains soy). Poop is yellow but not as seedy, its more liquid.
3/18/17 Blood in diaper
3/12/17 to today: very fussy and cries a lot, fussy when feeding. This is not like him at all, he is a happy baby who only cries when hungry. last few days he also strains when pooping. He does not want to be put down at all during the day either, he will cry even if he's been sleeping in my arms for an hour and i put him down he will wake up within 5 minutes.
Does all this seem to be a dairy and soy issue? I am unsure because of the recent time change and i also read that 6-8 weeks are peak for crying.
