    Hi all,

    My baby will be three weeks old tomorrow. We’ve noticed he’s developed some red patches in his lower abdomen which are quite big and have been there for over a week now. Seen a paed and been to emergency, both told us not to worry about these but I still am as they do not look right. Anyone seen anything like this before as we’re very concerned.

    Please see photos attached.

    TIA, appreciate all feedback.

    Could it be allergies? Like CMPA? Is baby unsettled and having green / mucus poo? Xx

    Could be anything at this point. Poo is greenish with a yellowish tinge. Baby sleeps quite well and doesn’t seem unsettled.

    thanks for your reply xx

    Important point is that he’s still 100% breastfed.
