DD had allergy issues as an infant that were never resolved. They diagnosed as MSPI, but despite 3 months of elimination diet, it never improved so we switched to Neocate formula (and saw results within 24 hours!). Now, at 2, she's completely allergy-free, thankfully.
I am hoping we don't have the same problems again. I am not going to cut dairy completely, but I am going to try and only consume a moderate amount. I'm curious to see what the others have to say!
Married to the love of my life 8/14/09 Our sweet little Easton was born at home 3/15/12 Suprise BFP! 09/20/12 natural m/c 10/09/12 Baby Heidi was born at home (picture perfect homebirth!) 7/28/13
DS was diagnosed with a milk sensitivity at about 2 months old and we were put on nutramigen formula (BF was unsuccessful). That worked well for several months until he was about 6 or 7 months and developed severe excema. After ignoring the pedis that told me that DS simply had a "viral rash" I cut the nutramigen and went to similac. The excema was gone in two days and he drinks more milk now than I can keep track of.
With this LO I plan to limit my dairy intake as I attempt round 2 of BF and go from there. I don't assume she will have the same issues DS has just like I wont assume that she will never have an issue with something (peanuts, strawberries, etc) just because DS did not.
DS had a mild dairy issue for the first year or so. While I breast fed for the first 6 months I ate very little garlic and onions, and almost no dairy (scant serving daily). If I over did it with dairy, he would get very very gassy and his diapers got pretty gross.
When we started giving him solids I noticed that on days I gave him regular formula (instead of expressed breast milk) in his cereal he often got hives. I switched to soy formula and alimentum and that was the end of hives.
I re introduced dairy cautiously when he was around a year old and he did fine, which is pretty common.
Being gluten free this time around, I'm really not relishing the idea of this baby having the same issues, because I can't imagine cutting out both food groups simultaneously.
