I posted a week or so back about possibilities of having milk imbalance this late in the game. DS will be 18 months in age in another 4 days and had a bout of diarrhea for about 2 weeks, He is back to normal now except for one watery, frothy green poop in the morning (no blood). He still nurses a LOT of times in the night. And when we had the diarrhea issues, I was home with him and he was exclusively on BM for almost 2 weeks, so yes my supply increased tremendously.
When I stopped nursing for a couple of nights and gave him EBM in a bottle instead, he is fine the next day morning. But if he nurses instead he gets the watery green poop.
We ran all bacteria, viral, parasite tests and everything is negative, his x-rays of bowel seems normal. And yes he is back to normal except for this one early morning poop (the rest of the day is fine and normal).
I did go back to block feeding and it is still not improving. and I am still pumping 2x a day and get about 15 oz on avg (and even if he doesn't nurse in the night, then I still stick with 2x pumping). And right after the diarrhea episode I was getting about 20+ oz a day with 2 pumps, and that has come back to where it was before the diarrhea.
Do you think this is related to milk imbalance ? Any advices ?
