So I just had DD#2 8 days ago...yay!! She has taken a liking to breastfeeding which is a huge relief to me. Her brother breastfed for 2 years without food issues in breastmilk, but DD#1 could not transfer milk out of the breast and ultimately had multiple food protein intolerances and ended up on Neocate. So I eliminated dairy and soy (just cuz they are the two most common intolerances) at 34 weeks in pregnancy and have remained off of them. I don't plan to introduce any dairy or soy as a trial until she is 8 weeks old. I want to make sure her gut is on the right track and also wait to make sure that she doesn't have any other food intolerances PRIOR to reintroducing dairy/soy. Here are my questions to you...
1. How old was your LO when they first showed signs of intolerance?
2. What was their reaction?
3. Advice on reintroducing dairy or soy when I finally do that??!! Eat a tiny bit and look for mild reactions or go big with sushi and edamame and watch for an obvious reaction? Any advice or experiences you would like to share are very appreciated!
