Has anyone's bub not showed any signs of cmpi until 5 months old? My DS is almost five months and today had a very small amount of blood in his last two poos. The after hours gp thinks it is cmpi and told me to eliminate all dairy straight away (he is exclusively bf) but I'm not convinced. DS has had diarrhea for about 36 hours (6 poos today) and just the last two have had blood. Tmi but they have been very watery and not mucousy at all, and have been an orange colour. He had his first tooth come through yesterday and had a viral infection with an inflamed throat (diagnosed by our gp) earlier this week. In the past his poos have occasionally been mucousy but not consistently. He vomits maybe once every 1-2 weeks which is usually after too much jiggling by DH close after a feed or over feeding. No rashes but occasionally a few pimples under one eye. He is a very settled and happy baby, and doesn't show any signs of being in pain.
Does any of this sound like cmpi? Or has anyone had a bub who hasn't developed cmpi until this age? I'm really reluctant to eliminate dairy without good reason as I have been having problems with losing too much weight (although I feel incredibly guilty and selfish saying that if my bub is unwell because of what I eat). Is it possible the blood could be due to the virus he had earlier in the week or teething and an irritated tummy?
