Milk sensitivity...how did you determine it was a possiblity?

I Hav enever delt with sensitivites, but I think my DS might be having issues. And milk seems to be the culprit (havent done elimination diet, but I am confident in milk being the problem)

Anyways, what made you start eliminating things?

Re: Milk sensitivity...how did you determine it was a possiblity?

My DS cried and cried and seemed in pain. No one in the house was sleeping and I felt like I was going mental. I figured there had to be some good reason for the crying.

I looked up online "colic and gas" and some sites suggested an elimination diet. I started just taking out dairy in within a day and a half he was a different baby. I then tried eliminating a bunch of other stuff as well.

Wheat and eggs were giving him a hard time too, but both are now ok. Dairy is still off limits. I have gone for 5 days without and then had some (4x) just to be sure, and it makes for a very long night.

Good luck .

My DD also spits up a lot which is normal for my girls but the crying was horrible. I also talked with the LC that I work with after the ped's office said to give her cereal at 3 weeks Anyway, the LC recommended trying block feedings since I have a huge supply, keeping her upright, and eliminating dairy and caffeine. I started the caffeine again and havn't had any changes. I have considered trying to eliminate more things to see if her spitting up would be better but havn't tried it.

The sad thing is DD #2 was horribly colicy and I didn't know about all of this!

my DD would cry and be gassy all the time. So I just eliminated all dairy and w/in a week she was a new baby. Now at 6 months she can do dairy fine. Just as a newborn I guess the milk proteins were to hard on her little tummy its hard a first but I got used to it

I've eliminated tomato, dairy and soy from my diet. And my daughters temperment and sleeping has really improved.
She was always gassy, fussy and crying. While she isnt a TOTALLY different baby, I do notice changes. One of which being the absence of excessive poopy diapers (she used to have 5 a day!).

Re: Milk sensitivity...how did you determine it was a possiblity?

I never actually figured it out till my kids were older, believe it or not. Aside from my middle being colicky as all get out until she was 6 months old, and she SPIT UP ALL THE DANG TIME... so for her, it was a simple matter of figuring out what in the world she could hold down.

My for my oldest and youngest, their milk sensitivities didn't show up until they hit about a year. And when I would try to give them whole milk, their belly would get hard, they'd be gassy, and then their poop would have this acidic smell to it and they'd have the runs. However, the runs, because it was basically stomach acid, they'd get these "diaper rashes" that were basically acid burns. But as soon as I cut out the milk, they were good. My oldest outgrew it by the time she was about 2.5, and my youngest is only 17 months, so we've got some time with her yet.

good luck mama!

It's very common for babies to have sensitivities to milk and soy protien as well as eggs, tomato, and wheat.

If you think it's only dairy cut it out of your diet and you'll have a new baby!

It was hard to get the hang of totally avoiding certain foods (accidently got a few soy lattes and realized it after the fact!) but you'll get the hand of it. I'm a couple months off soy and dairy and I don't even think about it anymore!

Re: Milk sensitivity...how did you determine it was a possiblity?

My ds had eczema from just a few weeks old. I never new that could be a symptom or allergies or sensitivities. When he was 7 month old I gave him yogurt and he broke out in hives, so it was pretty obvious.
Cutting all of his allergens out of my diet helped him immensly.

Re: Milk sensitivity...how did you determine it was a possiblity?

I knew I was allergic to dairy so that was pretty much a given once Noah started to get really bad crying fits and BM were horrible......the dr said colic I laughed sooooo harda nd told him it was from the Ice cream I ate.....even though I am allergic you can't take me away from my Cold stone creamery.

Start with milk, cheese, eggs, and go from there.

I also figured out this weekend that DS is allergic to Pork like me too. Poor kiddo no bacon for him ever!~
