My 8 week old ds is EBF and has always had bizarre poop. First it was green - too much foremilk which is now rectified. A couple of weeks ago he started having one poop every 24 hours compared to about 5 a day. A while ago ds had a soft and liquidy which had a couple of teeny tiny hard brown bits in it. I told his GP who said it was not constipation as the other poop was soft and constipation can be no BM for 4+ days. OK, well ds then had gastro enteritis and had loads of liquid poops. That cleared up and since then he has had pretty normal looking orangey slimy poo. He has a huge one in the morning and then seems to strain quite a bit during the day, often crying like he is in pain from pushing, to no effect, also, when I offer him the breast he stops straining. Well, today he has had little stains in his nappy every time I have changed him and the last one had clay type bits in it withone teeny tiny hardish brown bit.
Is this normal?? He is having plenty of wet nappies but I think he is slightly dehydrated as he has had a slightly sunken soft spot. He is also dribbling LOADS at the mo and HV said he could be teething??? At 8 weeks???
Another thing, I think I have OALD as ds has projectile vomit after some feeds and then HUGE burps!!
Sorry to go on!! Im beginning to think Im a paranoid neurotic first time mother!!!
Any advice much appreciated.
