I had suspected DS who is breastfed might have been CMPI as he's always hard to burp, arches his back, has thick, stringy, but still mustard yellow poo, always strains to fart and poo and just generally acts unsettled.
So I cut out all dairy for a week and a half but nothing changed, his poos were the same and still a bit unsettled so I introduced dairy back in my diet and the first 4 days of this he was sleeping better than ever.
Lately he's back to squirmy and isn't sleeping as well.
He had a bit of a poo explosion today and it was mustardy yellow, thick, a bit bubbly and stringy and where it had exploded out into his skin it was so red.
I guess my question is - is it possible to be CMPI even without green poos? Is red skin after contact with poo normal for all babies, or is his red skin from perhaps acid in the poo? I have some photos which are below, so stop scrolling if you don't want to see them. I'm hoping someone can help...... Sorry for the TMI!

Could it be reflux?
Eta: a lot of that sounds normal except the arching his back and wind can cause bubs to be unsettled too.

My daughter had blood in her poo. But her poo was still either mustard yellow or brown. Not generally green. She had cmpi.
I'm not really sure really but that was our experience.

Thanks Ladies, I forgot I even started this thread! I took DS to the GP on Tuesday as his poos started getting green and rather runny, I weighed him too and he had dropped in the percentiles so they have sent off a poo sample to test for blood cells in there.
Ive cut dairy from my diet so hopefully he starts putting on some weight.
He doesn't seem to be feeding so well of late and my supply is dropping. It's becoming all too familiar as DD was and still is CMPI at almost 3.
