Thanks everyone for all your advice, just wanted to let you all know that my little bug is doing better. she still occasionally has streaks of blood, but it's back to it's normal yellow/green instead of all brown and red. Yesterday and this morning she was in quite a bit of pain. no fever or anything else, just very uncomfortable, mostly gas. after some baby massage and a warm bath she started farting like a trucker, and now she's happy, giggling and playing again. I feel so relieved. After talking to the doctor again, we figure all i can do at this point is keep her (me) on the strict diet, and wait until she is older to test for celiacs, and dairy intolerance.
And here's my big girl posing pretty for the camera. :)
we went to the pedi yesterday morning, and they checked her over again. she's still happy and gaining weight, so the pedi had me send a culture to the lab and just said to keep an eye on her if she started showing any other signs.
this morning i go to change her diaper and its all red goopy and bloody. shes still happy and playing, but i'm getting scared. am i overreacting? has anyone else experienced anything like this?
we had to go to the doctor today, dd had blood in her poop, so we went to the ER. as it turns out, it was my fault, i accidently got gluten contaminated, and i have celiac disease. i never thought it could affect Scarlett, but obviously it did. after 4 hours the doctor said just to be careful of what i eat, and check with our pedi on monday.
scarlett is still happy, still gaining weight, and acts like nothing is wrong.
here's my question, the doctor said to supplement with watered down gatorade, since scarlett's poop is a little loose. do i really need to give my 3 month old a bottle of watered down gatorade, or can i just continue to breastfeed on demand? i would really rather not give her anything other than breastmilk if i can help it. I have an oversupply, so that's not an issue, and with all the allergies that run in myself and my family it just seems risky to me.
