      I sent your post to my friend, Stefanie, who I know went through something similar with one of her sons. Here is her reply to you.


      I so identify with what you're going through. I went through it with my youngest
      son who is now 3 and eats great and poops great, just to let you know! Going
      through what you're going through is awful. I remember being out of my mind
      because I didn't know what to do for this child. And the Doctors didn't seem
      to have many answers either. I would recommend seeing a child
      gastroenterologist if you can. Sammy ended up being on a special formula too
      (I forget the name but it was very expensive) and there were many nights
      when I gave him a baby enema to help him poop. He used to writhe in pain.
      What helped him a lot was being treated for acid reflux (even though he didn't
      spit up a lot-that was a part of what was going on for him because as soon
      as he started the medication he got better). Unfortunately it was a good 10
      months to a year before it all went away completely-but it did get
      remarkably better once he started the acid reflux meds. Hopefully you will
      be able to give him your breast milk again. I was not able to-he was
      bleeding from mine (in his poop)-and I couldn't cut everything out of my
      diet-I had already cut out a lot. But every kid is different. I think he had
      a number of allergies and the acid reflux etc...I promise you that it will
      get better in time. I would ask your Dr. about acid reflux though and maybe
      see a child gastroenterologist. I'm sorry for what you're going through. It
      will get better!!! My boy is now 3 and wild and healthy and athletic and
      smart and loves to eat and toilet trained too! Many blessings to you.

      Best, Stefanie Ann Levy (2nd National Tour)
