what does it mean if my baby has had diarrhea since he was born he is now a year and a half? he has an allergy to cows milk and hes been on soy. the only thing that changed since we switched to soy is that he stopped throwing up and he stopped having blood in his poop but its still diarrhea. i had for a long time questioned if i even knew if this was diarrhea or if it was just regular baby poop but today my sister watched him and commented that he might be getting sick because he has diarrhea. he gains weight great and is developing fine and has a lot of energy. the only thing is he is breastfed and he nurses all night long! it is super annoying and i dont get any sleep and if i take him off he cries until i put him back on. i wonder if the reason he nurses is because he might be having stomache aches and he is nursing for comfort. i have for a period of time taken away all grains/pasta/breads cause i thought it could be gluten related but nothing changed. i have no idea what it could be. the doctors are not concerned with it because he is gaining weight appropriately. has anyone else dealt with anything similar or know what it could be?I made a drs appointment but need to know what procedures to ask for or what to suggest it may be? I feel I have to do the research because the drs dont care. The diagnosis of milk intolerance was made by a dietician after seeing the doctors multiple times and them doing nothing. They told me they wont do any allergy testing till 2 years old.
