Ds2 had constant watery diarrhoea for 2 weeks when he was 6 weeks old .. I suspected milk allergy due to feeding issues, gp and hv both said not possible as ds was putting weight on at a very good steady alarming rate. Turns out it was a milk allergy, he was just taking all the nutrients he needed to grow and diarrhoea the rest out.
Dd1 used to swing between constipation and diarrhoea until we stopped all dairy but the worst time was when I actually introduced full milk into her diet on the advice of my HV!
Eventually she was seen by a paediatrician who asked me what I thought was causing the problem and when I said I thought it was the mild he just said, stop giving it to her then and supported me to put her on a diary free diet until she was about 8.
how can the HP know its not related to her chromosome deletion? Have they actually done any tests on how her digestive system works? The stomach is attached to vagus nerve so if there is any sort of neuro diversity in the brain it's entirely possible they are related.
But that aside it cannot be good for her. She's possibly not absorbing the nutrients she needs. Can you track her weight via centile charts and use NICE guidelines to push for further assessment?
Thanks for all the replies. I originally tonight it was overflow from constipation, but even if the poo isn't runny there is always a poo in her nappy when I change it. Ruled out dairy allergy too as she successfully did a milk challenge at 4 months old
This week has just been awful though and her little bum and parts are just red raw. Although metanium cream is easing it.
Seeing gp again early next week (different one who I know had experience in paediatrics) and I might even call her paediatrician again to see if they want to see her sooner.
