Anybody create a BF allergy with solids?

We started our 6-month-old son on squishy foods, and I thought yogurt might finally eradicate his thrush. But then the allergic reaction in his diaper flared up. (He'd had that before when I ate tofu & soymilk, so I cut out soy.) Obviously, we stopped giving him yogurt, but after 4 good days, he had another day of bad diapers yesterday. I've been eating dairy his whole existence. Already asked our Dr, and she said there's no way to know for sure, but give dairy a rest. Anybody else had something similar?

What type of reaction did you see with the diapers?

It can take weeks for dairy to get our of your system. You'll have to have elimination in your diet for 2-3 weeks without the allergens before attempting to add anything back in.

This happened with my daughter and rice. She was severely allergic (or sensitive) to baby rice cereal. once she was exposed to it in solid form, her body became on high alert and started picking up rice products in my milk. She ended up being diagnosed with FPIES and only had one safe food until over a year old =(.

Probiotics really helped us out and steering clear of sugary (bananas) foods that fed the bad yeast and bacteria in her gut worked well to clear up her tummy and fanny.

Good luck!

Re: Anybody create a BF allergy with solids?

I very much doubt you created an allergy. Soy and milk proteins are very similar, so it's not surprising that he reacts to both. My dd had gi issues when she was little, so I took out milk and slowly reintroduced it to my diet many months later. She seemed fine so I thought she has grown out of an intolerance. Nope! When she had milk directly for the first time she got hives all over her face. Basically it's just that the proteins are more processed through your breastmilk so they are less likely to initiate an immune response in lo (although as you saw with soy, it's always possible that babies can be very sensitive and react to anything you eat).

There's no way that you "created" an allergy, you just may not have identified it before. My son is allergic to tree nut/peanut/sesame and I ate ALL of those while nursing. We didn't find out until he eat a peanut butter cookie and we landed in the ER.

The proteins may just be so diluted in your milk, that he isn't reacting as strongly as when he eats it. And, allergies can get worse over time, so maybe his reaction has just been progressing.
