What you describe is really not a typical clinical picture and it would be best to have it evaluated if it persists. The main thing would be that your baby is feeding and growing well.

I see that you have already been at two doctors who said everything was fine. I would personally insist in taking a sample and get them to test it.
It could be a simple virus or something, that can easily be treated. It is not normaly for such a small baby, or anyone for that matter to suffer like this.
Please get another opinion and take the poo to you local lab to run tests.

Hi Lolita

Is your little one perhaps allergic to something in her diet? I would take her back to the Paed. as she sounds to be very uncomfortable.

Lots of luck.
