dairy intolerance

warning- poop mentioned

when do you start getting concerned about green poop? DD2 is 2 1/2 weeks and has been consistently pooping green since the mecomium stopped. i've read this can be hindmilk/foremilk imbalance or dairy intolerance. i block feed until she finishes a side to where i can't hand express anything and pump if one side starts to feel pretty full. i would have thought this would solve that imbalance.

now i'm wondering if there's a dairy issue. what would some other signs be? at 1 week she was up 9oz from her birth weight and she's getting checked again friday. she doesn't seem to be having any other issues. sometimes she spits up what seems to be a good bit but only after she's been nursing for a really long time so i think she may have just over-done it.

i've never dealt with anything like this and don't even know what all i should avoid to see if that's my problem. obviously milk and cheese and such but what about things like eggs? i'm totally clueless on eliminating things.

Re: dairy intolerance

It took us 4 months to resolve the formilk/hindmilk, imbalance and I was off dairy the whole time. My kids are have dairy problems.

If you decide to go off dairy, I would do all trace dairy even casien and whey for 4 weeks, to know for sure it that is it.

Re: dairy intolerance

Is it bright green and mucousy or more of a greyish green and frothy?

Re: dairy intolerance

it's bright green. i would say it's just like EBF consistency but the wrong color.

Re: dairy intolerance

I experienced both a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance and a dairy issue at separate times with my DS. When the problem was dairy, his poop was bright green and sometimes looked mucusy.
