Re: Allergies/Elecare?

Oh and just to give you an idea of our son was 7.5 lbs. at birth and 8.5 lbs. at 2 months. He had been nursing and gaining reall well and then he started crying constantly and refusing to eat. He would nurse, pull off, nurse, pull off, etc. He was not a happy guy, despite me being 100% dairy free (we figured out very early that it bothered him). He was put on Zantac and we started supplementing with Nutramigen at that point.

By 3 months, he would not nurse anymore at all (not that he would much anyway, obviously). At 4 months, he was 11.5 lbs. He then got diarrhea that would not stop and he started losing weight again. We switched to Neocate at 5 months and the diarrhea was gone that day! He was 13 lbs. at 6 months, almost 16.5 lbs. at 9 months, 18 lbs. at 1 year, and is about 20.5 lbs. now (at 14 months, 1 week).
