My son just turned 6 months. He is still exclusively breastfeeding. My diet hasn't changed with the exception of having vat minimally pasteurized milk the last couple days. I don't have cracked or bleeding nipples so it's not him swallowing blood either. It's bright red and he had two diapers with blood (the second had a little more then the first .) I do have another son with severe food allergies (eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sunflower seeds.) The only other symptom of allergies he has is nasal congestion(this has been since birth.) His doctor said it could be a sign of reflux but he doesn't spit up or show signs of discomfort at all. Since his congestion isn't causing an issue with eating the doctor is going to leave it alone.
