My son has had coffee grounds in his stool, kindly suggest what to do ?

hi my son is 8 months old and for the last 2 days has had coffee grounds in his stool. We took him to the doctor and it was positive for blood . He has also has stomach pain and sleeps about 6-8 hrs a day broken up, icluding naps, and wakes up uncomfortable. We were told that it could be acid reflux or an allergy to cows milk. We are extremely concerned and don't know what to do. We have changed him to soy formula, but so far nothing.

Thanks for the query

I donot agree with the diagnosis of the pediatrician. It cannot be acid reflux if it is positive for blood. He has to undergo colonoscopy and endoscopy immediately to see why and where he is bleeding from
Barium meal study is of no use

Pleasetake a second opinion. I am happy u could contact us through this portal
