For the last week or so she has stopped having seedy poops and it's just diarrhea. She's getting plenty of hindmilk, and it's not green, so it's not due to a foremilk imbalance. She's also been very fussy, gassy, and acting like her tummy hurts. Both my boys had milk protein allergies, so I have a feeling this is the beginnings of that. *sigh* No more dairy for me. Just wanted to complain a bit. Thanks for listening.

Lack of seeds does not mean it's diarrhea. My son rarely has seeds at all anymore but he poops on schedule - once in the morning, once in the evening (about 12 hrs apart). The ped said that lack of seeds itself is still a normal poop condition.

That said, he has an intolerance to dairy too (in fact the seeds disappeared when the dairy disappeared from my diet). It sucks, I love dairy! But I love breastfeeding more!

Hmmm...that's interesting. How are we to know if baby has diarrhea then, lol? <<honest question.

From kellymom:

Diarrhea in a breastfed baby is diagnosed when a baby has 12-16 stools per day (or more often than the baby's regular stool frequency), watery stools, and an offensive odor to the stools. Just one of these symptoms does not in itself mean the baby has diarrhea.

Hmmm...it doesn't have an offensive odor, but she literally poops between 15-20 times per day and it's pure liquid, and sometimes green.

My LO has the allergy. It was discovered after birth when he continued to loose weight cause he was pooping it all out-like 15-18 a day. I cut all dairy out of my diet (amazing all the names milk hides under) and about a month ago (4 months old), he finally got clean stool samples (free of blood). It took forever for his colon to heal and get all the milk out of his system.

Good for you for sticking it out!!!! I'm on day 4 (or is it 5?) of dairy elimination, she's less fussy, and the diarrhea is gone, but now it's mucousy, so I'm now positive that it is, in fact, a dairy allergy. Hopefully it'll only take another week or so and she'll be completely back to normal again. *crosses fingers*

Crossing my fingers for you that things will clear up quickly. In our case, he seemed better (less gassy, less poops, rash better) but the mucousy poops lasted much longer. My pedi said it would take weeks for all the dairy to completely get out of his system. I have been dairy free for 4.5 months and its been hard but...I've adjusted and found so many yummy things I can eat (soy milk, soy ice cream, etc.). Good luck!
