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??
