Colitis - has anyones baby had this? Lock Rss

Hi ladies,
Im new to this site, so a big HELLO to all of you.
My 8 week old son Daniel was dx with Colitis (an inflammation of the bowel/lge intestine which causes blood in pooh. This is due to a reaction to the diary in my diet) and I am just wondering if anyone else has had experiance with this and what they did.
At the moment I am on a strict no diary diet and am alternating breastfeeds with a special perscription only formula called Neocate. We have done this for a week and after todays appointment with the Paed. I am to replace one formula feed with the breast every 3 days until he is fully breastfed again (which will take about 1 1/2 weeks) then we see if his pooh goes back to the dark brown/red colour that it was, in which case we stop and go back to formula.
I would be interested to know if anyone else has had any experiance with Colitis and what they did? Also, do you think it was just a "phase" your baby was going through as he/she was growing or are they still not able to tolerate diary in mums diet?
Thanks
Barbx

Hi there,
My baby was not dx with colitis but lactose intolerance which caused projectile style poo that was liquid, we covered a parents room floor which was about 2 metres ( I have witnesses). I was initally told there was no lactose in breast milk so it was what I was eating but after a careful diet and a trial on S26LF formula things started to calm down. Unfortunately after trying to go back to breast feeding we ran into the same problems. Heres hoping you have a better outcome with Daniel. We are now on formula full time but much more settled and "normal" baby poos.
