thanks. that's what his pediatrician thinks too, but how long will it take to get antibiotics out of his system? he had them about 9 days ago. it was just a small IV drip on Friday night. So it wasn't more than one day on em.
I was researching some info to see if i could find anything on www.kellymom.com (great breastfeeding site) and i read about how u express bile-salt stimulated lipase in ur breast milk and it helps break down the fats in the milk for your baby. I then googled it to find any info. this is what i found
Bile salt-stimulated lipase (BSSL) is a LeX-carrying glycoprotein (27) secreted by the pancreas and activated by bile salts in the intestine. BSSL is also expressed by the mammary gland and present in human milk (4) at a concentration of between 100 and 200 μg/ml (42). Neonates normally secrete only small amounts of colipase-dependent pancreatic lipase into the duodenum (14), so gastric lipase as well as BSSL in human milk markedly enhances fat digestion in the newborn (3). Pancreatic BSSL and human milk BSSL were shown to be identical at the amino acid level (19, 31) while substantially varying in their carbohydrate contents (26, 43), with LeX being present at the C terminus of BSSL (20, 27). BSSL is also present in testes and adrenals (21) and blood plasma of humans (25). BSSL is produced by stimulated macrophages (22) and eosinophils (15), and its activity has been detected in endothelial cells (23), aortic homogenate (39), and human placenta (7).
So what i'm wondering is if this has anything to do with it.. i dunno i'm just searching cuz i noticed the two days i didnt go to the bathroom he had a solid poop instead of diarrhea... it's just weird coincidence.
