I have been working on an elimination diet. I took out dairy about a month ago, and my babies symptoms (discomfort while eating and fussiness) got better. Then, a couple weeks after that noticed some tiny spots of blood in my baby's poop. The doc thought it was a dairy/soy intolerance (my husband also had a dairy/soy intolerance when he was a baby) so now I am off soy (for a week so far). I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this, and if so...then how long did it take your baby to feel better? How long before the blood stoped ( I am still seeing spots in some diapers)? I am starting to feel frustrated and sad for my little guy. It breaks my heart, and I just want him to feel better ; ( If anyone has some encouraging information for me I could sure use it! I really want to continue breastfeeding.
