My baby is miserable and after month of Drs saying stuff like "yeah something is def. not right" and "poor guy looks so miserable" they don't seem to be taking strong action. They have ran multiple blood tests and stool tests along with rectal exams. His blood test his showing he is always anemic, high kidney levels, and high metabolic level. His poop is ALWAYS a sticky pasty texture and always a chalky green color and it smells horrid. He is constipated but it's not solid poops like I said and he tries pooping everyday and gets little amounts out at a time. His belly also bloats a lot off and on but it's almost always bloated. He is small for his age at 14 pounds and he will be 9 months this week. No matter what formula we change him to or what foods he eats his poop remains the same. Miralax isn't really helping him and they keep telling us to up it. After doubling the miralax for a few days he had 4 water poops and then went straight back to the pasty poops he can't get out. He is miserable and cries all the time in pain and I just want a happy baby!!!!

  • What foods are you feeding your baby? If you are not using organic formulas, the food you are feeding the child likely contains soy and corn syrup. These are genetically modified products and very dangerous, especially to the young developing child.Jeffrey Smith has a great documentary: 'Genetic roulette - The movie' that I always encourage people to watch. Also this pdf is very informative. Hope you figure this out.http://responsibletechnology.org/docs/BabyFoodCampaignBroch.pdf

  • ...more info. on genetically modified ingredients.Here is a recent excerpt from a Dr. Mercola article:http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/04/30/monsanto-gmo-corn.aspx?e_cid=20130430_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130430Analysis Finds Monsanto’s GE Corn Nutritionally Inferior and High in Toxins A report given to MomsAcrossAmerica4 by an employee of De Dell Seed Company (Canada's only non-GMO corn seed company) offers a stunning picture of the nutritional differences between genetically engineered (GE) and non-GE corn. Clearly, the former is NOT equivalent to the latter, which is the very premise by which genetically engineered crops were approved in the first place. Here’s a small sampling of the nutritional differences found in this 2012 nutritional analysis: Calcium: GMO corn = 14 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 6,130 ppm (437 times more)Magnesium: GMO corn = 2 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 113 ppm (56 times more)Manganese: GMO corn = 2 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 14 ppm (7 times more) GMO corn was also found to contain 13 ppm of glyphosate, compared to zero in non-GMO corn. This is quite significant and well worth remembering. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “safe” level for glyphosate in American water supplies is 0.7 ppm. In Europe, the maximum allowable level in water is 0.2 ppm. Organ damage in animals has occurred at levels as low as 0.1 ppm... At 13 ppm, GMO corn contains more than 18 times the “safe” level of glyphosate set by the EPA. This is truly disturbing when you consider the fact that in countries like Argentina, glyphosate is blamed for the dramatic increase in devastating birth defects as well as cancer. Sterility and miscarriages are also increasing. This may be due to its similarity to DDT, which is well-known to cause reproductive problems, among other things. Another health hazard associated with glyphosate is its effect on gut bacteria. Not only does it promote the growth of more virulent pathogens, it also kills off beneficial bacteria that might keep such pathogens in check—both in the soil, and in the gut of animals or humans that ingest the contaminated crop. It's important to understand that the glyphosate actually becomes systemic throughout the plant, so it cannot be washed off. It's inside the plant. And once you eat it, it ends up in your gut where it can wreak total havoc with your health, considering the fact that 80 percent of your immune system resides there and is dependent on a healthy ratio of good and bad bacteria. An additional disturbing piece of information is that GMO corn contained extremely high levels of formaldehyde. According to Dr. Huber, at least one study found that 0.97 ppm of ingested formaldehyde was toxic to animals. GMO corn contains a staggering 200 times that amount! Perhaps it’s no wonder that animals, when given a choice, avoid genetically engineered feed."

  • There is nothing about your child's development or health that sounds "normal." If he is 14 lbs at 9 months old and you are not starving him to death, and you are not getting any answers from that doc, then you need to fire that pediatrician of yours immediately and get to a better doc. Select a child developmental pediatrician who works with children who have disabilities and developmental disorders. I suggest you take your child to your closest major University medical school children's clinic (the best thing you can do), or to your closest "Childrens Hospital" clinic. Get some real docs and pediatric specialists on board and forget about what your doc has told you so far. Maybe get some genetic testing as well to rule out any possible syndromes or genetic rearrangements. This early time in your child's life is crucial to his later development. Do not wait until it is too late. It is urgent that yuou do something fast and get to better PEDIATRIC SPECIALISTS. He needs a ped gastroenterologist at the least. And I would say specialized dietitian or consult. Possibly an entire TEAM of ped SPECIALISTS. Good luck and hurry do not wait. Many ped docs do not see unusual cases in their practices. Do not let your child be your pediatrician's learning Guinea pig. Most of all, ALWAYS go with your mother's internal gut instinct about your child regardless of what they tell you--it is always right! Good luck and please keep us informed.
