Have any of you started to encounter food allergies with your LO? My daughter had a very slight reaction to cheese about 6 weeks ago (very faint red blotches around her lips). She ate cheese again w/o incident since then. But based on three pretty severe facial outbreaks in the last week, including one when she was sprayed, but didn't ingest, cow's milk from a friend's sippy cup, I now suspect she has a milk protein allergy. Waiting to get in with a pediatric allergist but don't have an appointment until late August. Her pediatrician is going to do a blood allergy panel next week when we go in for a re-check on an ear infection (another indicator she may have a milk allergy).
If any of you are going down this road, or have been down this road with another child, any advice? We are still BF, and I cut dairy and soy out of my diet the second I suspected a milk allergy, but it still takes some time for it to leave my system. So far she has not had any issues after nursing.
Also, if you have any dairy-free meal or snack ideas, I am all ears. After 48 hours of checking labels I am in awe of all of the items that have milk in them. It's insane!
