Re: Breastfeeding & Milk Allergy?
I'd donate the Similac to a shelter. If you don't have it, the chances that you'll break down and use it are that much slimmer.
I think you're at a good place- change your diet, talk to the pediatrician, see what happens. As long as the baby seems generally happy and healthy, there's nothing more I'd be doing.
That's pretty normal. Could it be exzema? That would point more in the allergy direction. You might want to take pictures of the rash to show the pediatrician- there's no guarantee your LO will be rashy when you take her in.
That sounds entirely normal for a 3.5 month-old. Because the body uses breastmilk so efficiently, leaving so little waste behind, it is normal for a breastfed baby to go a week (or sometimes even more) without pooping, as long as the poop is soft when it is passed, and the baby does not seem in discomfort when pooping or trying to poop.
Her bowel movement is a little random. The past two weeks she's been going only once a week.And when she goes, it's a diaper bomb. The texture and color are good though: saucy, dark yellow, no green or blood or milk curd. Last night her bowel was a little runny, bright yellow.
Me too. FWIW, formula usually makes things worse, not better.
I hope she'll get better and not needing to use formula.
