Baby skin went stark white. Blood in stool, low hb, has acid reflux. What is the treatment?

We were at the ER today because our 8 week old's skin color went stark white. They found blood in his stool and his hemglobin level was 9.5. They also think he has acid reflux. He has been screaming non stop since he came home from the hospital. I have exclusively breastfed him and just today switched to PuraMino Nutramigen today. I also went off Dairy per my ped about 2 weeks ago. Worried about the bleeding and source and not sure of next steps???? Thank you/!!!

Thanks for visiting healthcaremagic.
Your child age is 8 weeks and he has blood in the stool with crying continuously probably due to intusscuption of small bowels which should be ruled out immediately. Most of the babies with artificial infant milk suffer by this problem.Hence the breast feeding is the best.
