    Both my children have CMPI. It takes a while for the gut to heal after cutting out all dairy. 3 weeks minimum i think? He may also be intolerant to soy which is in a lot if things so watch for that. Make sure you are getting fat in your diet so your not losing weight. Nuts, avocado, etc. You can make lots of sweets from scratch and there are a few milk alternatives to try. Also Arnotts Chocolate Ripple and the 100s & 1000s biscuits are dairy free.
    I know it's hard but keep going with it - the mucous is a sign something isn't agreeing with him i think?

    Not sure about anything to do with breastfeeding as I have FF both my kids but the green poo looks just like what my DD who has CMPI had when she was suffering with it.

    Thanks for the replies. My gut instinct is telling me the mucus is not right and the intestines are obviously inflamed but I just feel like I'm getting so little reward for cutting out dairy and egg and worried about the calcium etc. I havnt cut out soya as I felt this would restrict me too much but only have it in foods or occasionally in tea. At home I use almond milk as a substitute and nuttelex. I'll wait and see what the paed says but I'm just a bit fed up as I was hoping to see a definite improvement especially with the mild symptoms and the fact I have cut out all dairy and egg.

    Default Cows milk intolerance?

    We did an elimination diet when DD was 3 months, her nappies looked almost identical to what you've posted, we had to eliminate all dairy (inc eggs) anything red, soy, coffee and chocolate for a month, within days you could see she was no longer in pain and by the end of the month she was like a new baby, after that we slowly introduced one by one, with a 2 week gap in between. It turned out she had an intolerance to most of those things (except red foods) and we ended up giving her neocate because I wasn't coping with such a strict diet and she wasn't putting on as much weight as needed.
    The paed wouldn't do anything until we had done the strict elimination diet so be prepared to have to start fresh if you haven't also cut out all soy, sorry to be a downer but this was our experiance.
    As a milk alternative we were told to use almond or rice milk while doing the diet

    Best wishes for getting this sorted fast!!!

    Wow that's interesting about the red foods! Is that anything red, ie veg such as capsicum, tomatoes etc?? I think I'll cut out soya now as I've still got 2 weeks until the appointment and I don't eat much soya so shouldn't be too hard. It's really hard to tell if it's bothering my ds. He seems so happy during the day but is a nightmare sleeper even with 2 months of sleep training so I do wonder if there is an underlying issue. Let's see!! I hope I get things to settle down, I've tried to give him aptimil allerpro but he just won't take it.

    Yip everything red, tomatoes, capsicums the lot it's something to do with the makeup of the red pigment.
    DD was pretty normal to, bit grumpy during the day but a nightmare at night time, after I cut everything out DD slept a lot better at night and her naps were longer and after starting the formula she slept from 7pm to 7am, and had a 3 hour nap everyday.

    I agree with all that wheats said. It can take up to 3 weeks for his gut to heal.

    He really careful with cutting out soy as it is in A LOT of stuff, so read all packets first.

    It's a tough road but will be worth it once you figure out what it is.

    We saw a specialist today, he reminded me to take calcium tablets. My breastmilk will produce sufficient supply of calcium by drawing from my bones 😳

    Do you take a specific calcium supplement or is a general one ok? At the moment I'm just using up some old pregnancy and breastfeeding vitamins but not sure if they have enough calcium.
