I have a 3 month old baby boy, who 5 days ago began to have diarrhea and I notice bloody mucus in his stool. I took him to the dr the next day, after discovering this, and the dr. suspects he is intolerant to dairy and soy. I immediately cut out all dairy and soy products out of my diet and now, 4 days later, my baby seems to be doing worse! Does anyone know how long it should take for the dairy and soy to get out of my system and his? I am really starting to worry that it is something more serious because yesterday he had a bloody diaper...no stool just about a quarter size amount of blood. I really do not want to stop breastfeeding but I'm worried I'm going to do more damage than good! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
