    Default Help! Breastfeeding and gastro

    Ok my one month old ebf baby is not himself he seems to have tummy pain and greenish poo and I'm wondering if it's from gastro! Bit of background is my older kids brought gastro home from daycare😩😷 and shared it with everyone except newborn (I put it down to him being bf that he got away with not getting it!) anywho I stopped vomiting/diarrhoea Friday and yesterday n today Bub has had greeny poo and upset. I was wondering could some form of upset be passed in my milk? Like I know some kids can get lactose intolerant temporarily after gastro could this be the same for my newborn but threw my milk? He is usually so calm n never this upset I feel terrible for him! Many thanks for reading my essay!!

    I think breastfeeding is meant to protect him from gastro because it will carry antibodies. If I'm correct, green poo is normally because they are getting too much 'foremilk' at the beginning of a feed and not enough of the fatty hind milk at the end.
