You take it? Does it help with the upset tummy?

An antihistamine for the baby. Obviously check with your doctor first and use sparingly (like in the case of accidental exposure).

Oh, and I only use about 1/4 of the recommended dosage for baby based on weight. I don't like that they can make them tired. I usually start with the 1/4 dosage and give more every hour until they symptoms ease up. It has never taken more than 3, 1/4 doses.

Does this work with other foods allergies, too? My daughter is grain intolerant (i don't know if it's an allergy) but also something is keeping her from pooping and sleeping regularly too. I had tried removing dairy, but nothing changed. Not sure what her trouble is...

If it is a TRUE allergy, the antihistamines will work. Talk to your doctor before introducing any medication (even OTC). However, all you will do is mask the symptoms. You need to get to the bottom of why it is happening. Have you considered eliminating corn? Corn seems to be a very common allergen, as well as soy.

Re: Infant Dairy Allergy/Sensitivity

I'm pretty sure her slightly runny nose is from the same cold the boys have. So far it isn't a serious cold. . .Her eczema is skin tone now, it's nice to see some quick results. Waiting to see if she starts pooping normal before eliminating other stuff. I guess we have a week to go before it's all out of her system.

I'll probably toss the freezer stash - Once I start pumping regularly I don't have a problem getting some extra. Trying to get enough for Monday is the hard part, but we'll figure something out. Even if dh has to come and get the milk. (he has the kids during the day and I have them in the evenings when he works)

Re: Infant Dairy Allergy/Sensitivity

I've been off of dairy since November. DS was hospitalized after he had stopped breathing twice and was diagnosed with reflux. He's been on Prevacid since then and is doing great. His GI also said that dairy may worsen it, even though he tested negavtive for a dairy allergy in the hosp. (once I've had dairy in the last 3 months and he was miserable )

It's overwhelming at first but easy once you get the hang of it. I'm enjoying some coconut milk ice cream right now And Almond Milk is fantastic. I've dropped a bunch of weight, too, and my insides are working better. More importantly, DS is a much happier baby.

Keep nursing

Re: Infant Dairy Allergy/Sensitivity

Has he been okay? Last I knew the infant Prevacid contained dairy. Took us forever to figure this out with our DD. The prevacid both masked and caused the symptoms.
