My pedi just switched my LO to alimentum at his 2 month appt today due to suspected milk protein allergy. Also she wanted to thicken feeds due to his reflux. First he is not eating much at all and just screamed when I tried to feed it to him last. Could this possibly be because he doesn't feel well from shots or he hates the taste? Also nipple size... We are at a level 1 playtex ventair so I went up to medium flow level 2 and it seems he's gasping/ choking on it but level 1 with the thickened feeds he is not getting anything out of it. Thoughts? Experiences?
My main question though is when can they actually test for allergies on infants? I want to try to be sure he actually does have an issue as well. Thanks and sorry I am a worried ftm
