You are right to be worried, but as I read it he is ebf and you are on a soy and dairy free diet, so that is pretty hypo- allergenic. The next step is a hydrolysed formula such as neocate. I would watch for a bit longer, is he still gaining weight ?

My daughter went through a phase of producing snotty, mucousy poos. It's a combination of having a snotty nose and pre-teething salivary poo. She's 10 months now and still no teeth but she was fuming and chewing alot at that stage.

Guming not fuming!

Yes that's what I was thinking, adenovirus is particularly known for it. But breast milk is the best a allowing gut flora (or healthy bacteria) to re-colonise.

DS has had the same thing for the last 3-4 weeks. There is a bug going around at the moment. I think he developed a bit of lactose intolerance hence why it's lasted so long but it seems to be clearing up now.

DS had dairy and soy allergies too so I understand the worry. His poo can change a lot and viruses are a big culprit usually.
