My little boy is nearly 4 months old and has dropped of the charts for weight. He has only put on 1 kg since born. He is exclusively BF.
He is on medication for silent reflux which has helped his unsettled ness and sleep but he is still not gaining weight.
I'm wondering if he has a cows milk protein intolerance, but anyone I know who is managing it hasn't had weight gain issues. I tried introducing some formula through a line feeder yesterday but last night we had one of the worst nights so far.
I have given up dairy and soy (started yesterday) to see if that helps but as we need to see some weight gain soon I was going to try Allerpro? Any advice, I am waiting on a referral for a Paed but I don't want to do nothing for 3/4 weeks whilst I wait?
He does have fairly mucusy poos that have green threads in them and I have noticed tiny specs of blood although I wasn't sure if it was his medication as that is red too.
