My son is 8 weeks old and has had mucus green diarrhea almost 2 weeks?

Hi, my son is 8 weeks old and has had diarrhea (total water with a tint) and mucusy green diarrhea for a week and four days. He has had projectile vomiting, sweats (but no fever) and his sleep and demeanor have changed. Tonight, he began wheezing/crying/screaming in his sleep.
The dr ruled out dehydration and all bacterial viruses and blood from a stool sample this past Tuesday. I have been dairy- free for a week and a half without any change in his stools.Tonight, he won’t sleep and has been crying/wheezing in his sleep.
He has GERD and takes 0.5 mg of a prescription medication for it. We also give him gripe water every four hours and gas drops with every feed. He has no known allergies. He just had a VCUG procedure done, but the results were negative.
What do i do? What could it be? All I’ve been able to find online is Pyloric Stenosis and Gastroenteritis and that terrifies me.

I am not finding a cause of worry Breastfed baby poop is considered normal when it’s a mustard yellow, green or brown color. It is typically seedy and pasty in texture and may be runny enough to resemble diarrhea.
The vomiting is caused by GERDband he is on treatment..
the ruflux can cause upper respiratory tract infection or inflammation causing wheezes but let a pulmonary pediatrician check his chest…

hi
this can be due to indigestion issues with the baby.
give gripe water,breast feed at divided intervals of time.
prebiotics will help.
consult a paediatrician and get a xray of abdomen/chest done.
thanks

HI
THIS MAY BE DUE TO SUBCLINICAL INFECTION.
PROBIOTIC MEDICINES AND ANTIBIOTICS CAN BE STARTED IF SYMPTOMS WORSEN.
GET USG ABDOMEN DONE.

hello there’
mucus indicates infection.
get stool examination done.this will confirm the organism responsible for diarrhoea.
e coli or rota virus are the most likely infectants in this case.
