  • 99.2 could be he was snuggled up and warm when you took it. SPti up can be chunky and smell of sour milk so that sounds okay as long as he wasn't heaving. Seedy greenish yellow poop is common for babies under about 3 months. I think you are okay!

  • Omenn syndrome is an autosomal recessive severe combined immunodeficiency[1] associated with mutations in the recombination activating genes (RAG1 and RAG2), affecting circulating levels of both B-cells and T-cells.

    The symptoms are very similar to graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). This is because the patients have some T cells with limited levels of recombination with the mutant RAG genes. These T cells are abnormal and have a very specific affinity for self antigens found in the thymus and in the periphery. Therefore, these T cells are auto-reactive and cause the GVHD phenotype.

    Symptoms include:
    •Desquamation (shedding the outer layers of skin)
    •Chronic diarrhea
    •Erythroderma (widespread reddening of the skin)
    •Hepatosplenomegaly (simultaneous enlargement of both the liver and the spleen)
    •Leukocytosis (elevation of the white blood cell count)
    •Lymphadenopathy (swelling of one or more lymph nodes)

  • To me he sounds like he might have a dairy issue. I don't know a lot about formulas but am guessing that the ones you are using are dairy based. Some babies have a sensitivity to dairy, which often resolves by a year -18 months. Ask your doctor about a soy base.

    a temp of 99.2 is an elevation in temp, not a fever. Most doctors only want to know about 100.3 and higher

  • Omenn syndrome is sometimes treated with bone marrow transplantation and cord blood stem cells.

    As far as your son 99.2 is not concidered a temp at his age rather normal. Sounds like his body does not agree with the mixing of those formula's you have given to him. Check with your child's Dr to see if your son maybe allergic to these products (formulas) the poop is a give away and the fact he is spitting up undigested formula. Also has his Dr actually told you your son has reflux, colic?? or are u just tying to make him comfortable?

  • ITS GURL WHO MADE POST he doesnt cry for 4 hour but his whole body is tence and i thought reflux was sopposed to be alot and shoot across the room type thing .
    the colic calm seems to help a bit but he fusses again within like an hour sometimes less. he is very fussy he never acted like this b4 so i cant figure out if its from colic calm or formula i stopped mixing 2 or 3 days ago and his poop is still weird u think it would be out of his system by now is it possible he could have a ear infection?
