Blood in Baby's Diaper

My breastfeeding two month old son has been having 'stringy' blood in his poop since yesterday morning. The Dr yesterday said she sees a very small anal fisher and that might be the cause. i just don't see how it could be coming from something so tiny. she also mentioned it could be from dairy in my diet. he's otherwise a very healthy, smiley, talkative, full term baby. Any other moms/babies experience this?

Problems Breast Feeding --Help!!!

Alrighty moms. My wife is shy on posting, but she has been grappling with the idea of not breast feeding. (we have a 3 week old.) Our families (moreso mine) are really big on natural milk and the Boob Nazis(La Leche League from Palos Hospital) have made her feel like [email protected]____.com whenever she's called saying she's thinking about not feeding and in need of advice. They don't give her solutions, they say 'go buy an easy access tank top so you can feed @ the mall' 'just get over it'... and my favorite 'As a mother who is able to milk, it is...

Similac Checks/coupons Needed

I could really use Similac checks/coupons if you get them and don't use or need them. My baby was diagnosed with a milk allergy a couple of weeks ago and is now on Alimentum. This is creating a dent in our budget! So any coupons you could share would be great!!! Please send me a message if you have any you'd liek to share! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Enfamil or Similac

Hi ladies, I am wondering if any of you have had the experience of using both of these brands and can help me make a decision on which to go with. I used Similac Isolmil Advanced with my daughter but just read a study that the Enfamil ProSobee Lipil has higher levels of nutrients in it than the Similac. I am so used to the name brand Similac that using something different worries me without some input. If any of you could share your experiences with me I would appreciate it! Also, just in case, I am not at all against breast feeding and...

Similac Advance - Formula Question

Since our baby was born, she was breastfed, but needed a supplement. We continued using the formula we started on in the hospital - Similac Advance. She has been doing great with the 'ready to go' kind, getting less than 8 oz. a day supplement. I recently bought the Similac Advance 'Early Shield' variety. She has had non stop gas - starting 5 min. after she ate! I hate to think her little tummy is hurting because of it! Obviously I am not giving it to her again...but I am wondering if other moms out there had a similar experience? ...
