HI all. My baby girl is 8 months old, and we have tried LITERALLY every.single.formula. there is. First, it was a diaper rash. We would receive donor milk and she wouldn't have any formula for a few weeks, then we would start phasing it back in, usually with a different formula. Then the diaper rashes started getting worse, bleeding, open, yuck. Not from a lot of poo diapers, either. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago when we were in the ER three times for huge, open, oozing sores around her hip and diaper area. Then, 4 days later, after being put on Elecare, she had taken a bottle in the doctor's office, and immediately started having issues breathing and broke out in hives. 2 days later we were back because her eyes became swollen and she was having lime green poop.
All of this happened on formula.
On donor milk, which our donors aren't on any special diet, there is no reaction. In fact, she becomes a super happy baby that I can put down.
Her doctor's can't figure it out. She has been referred to derm, allergy and immunology, and gastro, although we can't get her in for at least 2 months.
Has anyone experienced anything like this??
