chronic diarrhea with mucus in my 9 month old son

My son is 9 months old.almost. History of pyloric stenosis, pneumonia and being hospitalized for dehydration. GERD (outgrown). Suspected cows milk allergy but never confirmed. Was on Neocate from 4 months old. Weaned to nutramigen at 6 + months, was doing great for a couple of weeks. At 7 months old he was hospitalized for dehydration, ever since then he has been having very mucusy diarrhea. No other symptoms other then congestion. Feared it might be a fast malabsorption problem so we've been trialing pregestimil for 4 days now, no improvement on bowels out congestion. Add vomiting. Coincidence or something new? Perhaps needing to go back to Neocate? No blood in stool that i can tell. Hes not teething, not drooling. He also no longer sleeps through the night. Wakes up 2 Xs now. Does not eat more than 5oz at a time. in the e.r. Last night (unrelated issue) he weighed 17lbs 4oz which is 2oz LESS than he weighed 2 weeks ago.

Any insight would be helpful, unclear where to go from here.

Allergist? Back to GI? Cystic fibrosis? Celiacs? MFPI? MSPI? unrelated? or something else??

Suggest you go to your GI MD to determine what is wrong so they can treat it and he can gain weight. Thank you for your question.
