Some mothers find that their normally happy, healthy, nursed baby has developed some digestive issues. The baby might be fussier than normal, have an extreme amount of gas, or strange stools, some of which could even contain a little blood. If any of these symptoms occur, call your pediatrician, but don't stop there. It would be a good idea to begin a log of what mother is eating. If you begin to notice a pattern in baby's reaction when you have eaten a certain food, it could be a food allergy. You might want to avoid this food. If any reaction is serious, make sure you take the baby in to see if any serious food allergies exist and if any foods such as gluten or dairy must be avoided altogether.
