Blood in baby poop


Q: Hi

My baby is 5 months old now and she has blood in her stools from when she was 2 months old. She is exclusively breast fed.I have eliminated all dairy and soy from my diet but still the blood continued. I even eliminated the common allergens which did not resolve the problem. he blood reappears once every week or 10 days. We had allergy testing done for her and the allergist thinks she has no allergies and her condition may be GI related. Recently I noticed that she is reacting to meat and eggs in my diet. Cannot figure out if it is a coincidence. The baby is thriving and gaining well on weight.can you guide me in solving my daughter's problem. appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.
