my son is now 5 months old (as of today) and still EBF-- no solids yet.
just over the last week or so....he has spit up a little bit maybe 2-3x a day.....just a little on his bib. he never did this before.
i looked on kellymom and one reason could be that he's teething...well, he is gnawing on his hands constantly and drools all day long (lots of bibs! lots of laundry!) so it said that he's swallowing a lot of saliva and that could cause this. anyone experience this?
anyhow, i didn't know if it's something I AM eating....i haven't changed anything. i'm just trying to be careful - sometimes if he sits up fast or he's upright right away - he spits up a little. anyhow, just curious as to why it's happening all of a sudden.
the second thing is (and not sure if it's related or not) - is that a few days ago, he had like mucus in his diaper....kind of like egg whites. and there was a tiny bit of blood. i'm talking miniscule. only happened once. and then after that one time, same mustardy/seedy diapers as usual etc etc...i was surprised - but my DH thought it was nothing and said to relax.
i was going to call his pediatrician - but i was curious if this is really rare and an indication of something serious or has it happened to anyone. i mean, i just breastfeed him - and haven't changed anything. do you think this could be a milk allergy and i should cut out dairy or have i just been lucky that his diaper output has been normal every single day and i'm overreacting?
