Soy is super hard to avoid. Make sure you do a lot of label reading. DS is allergic to soy, and it is in EVERYTHING. Make sure for milk that you are avoiding hidden milk. There are a million different words for milk...

Potentially Dairy Ingredients

  • Artificial or Natural Flavors/Flavoring – These are vague ingredients, which may be derived from a dairy source. A few of particular concern are butter, coconut cream, and egg flavors.
  • Fat Replacers – Brands such as Dairy-Lo® and Simplesse® are made with milk protein.
  • Galactose – This is often a lactose byproduct, but it can also be derived from sugar beets and other gums.
  • High Protein or Protein – Ingredients noted with no further details may be derived from milk proteins (casein or whey). This is particularly true in “High Energy” foods.
  • Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein – The processing phase may use casein, but only trace amounts would likely remain.
  • Lactic Acid Starter Culture – These cultures may be prepared by using milk as an initial growth medium.
  • Lactobacillus – This term is noted often as a probiotic. It is in fact bacteria, not a food byproduct, and is named as such for its ability to convert lactose and other simple sugars to lactic acid. Though often utilized in milk products to create lactic acid, on its own, this ingredient is not always a concern. However, in some cases it may have been cultured or produced on dairy, and thus have the potential to contain trace amounts.
  • Margarine - Milk proteins are in most brands, though not all.
  • Prebiotics – A newcomer on the digestive health scene, these are indigestible carbohydrates. They are quite different from probiotics, which are living microorganisms. Prebiotics, such as galacto-oligosaccharides, lactosucrose, lactulose and lactitol may be derived from milk-based foods.
Rarely Dairy Ingredients

  • Calcium or Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate – Stearoyl lactylates are derived from the combination of lactic acid (See any potential concerns with lactic acid below) and stearic acid. They are generally considered non-dairy and safe for the lactose intolerant and milk allergic (again, see below). However, the stearic acid may be animal derived, which could be a concern for vegans.
  • Calcium, Sodium, or Potassium Lactate – Lactates are salts derived from the neutralization of lactic acid, and are rarely a dairy concern. For example, it was noted that the lactate found in one brand of orange juice was made from sugar cane.
  • Caramel Color – Anything with caramel in its title may sound like a dairy red flag, but caramel color is typically derived from corn syrup and occasionally from potatoes, wheat, or other carbohydrate sources. While lactose is a permitted carbohydrate in the production of caramel color, it is rarely, if ever used.
  • Lactic Acid – Lactic acid is created via the fermentation of sugars, and can be found in many dairy-free and/or vegan foods. Most commercially used lactic acid is fermented from carbohydrates, such as cornstarch, potatoes or molasses, and thus dairy-free. Though lactic acid can be fermented from lactose, its use is generally (I said generally; where concerned, always check with the manufacturer) restricted to dairy products, such as ice cream and cream cheese.

Re: What could possibly be wrong with my almost 5 month old???

I hope you get it worked out! there is definitely more than teething going on here. some may disagree, but i dont personally think teething would cause 6 weeks of constant crying but sleeping issues, eating issues, weight loss. I am sorry you are having a tough time here and hope these other posts will help you!

Thank you everyone. I have a script for Prilosec I'm going to try. I'm also down to bare mimum eating.

What is a reasonable amount of naps and for how long each day for a baby her age? DH thinks I'm trying to make her sleep too much during the day and that's why she isn't sleeping good. But when she's fussy and won't eat etc etc I just always assume she's over stimulated and tired...

Re: What could possibly be wrong with my almost 5 month old???

For a five month old, I would say three naps a day, maybe two if she was taking long ones like 3 hour naps. at 6 or 8 months, my daycare kids transition to 2 naps. then they transition to one nap sometime between 12 and 18 months, depending on the kid. at five months old, I wouldnt expect most kids to stay awake happily for more than 2 hours at a time

At least two naps a day, but, probably three.

Sleep begets sleep...if she's missing out on sleep, it's hard to get back into the groove.

But, to me, it sounds like she's hungry, but for some reason can't or won't eat. I'd try different bottles, (I like the tomee tippee bottles) Heck, at this point, I'd buy her a taco if I thought that would help.

Are you able to pump a lot? I hate to suggest trying a formula if that's not what you want to do, but if that would help, it might be worth a try.

I agree, 3 naps is normal for that age.

Sorry this is such a struggle. Keep fighting for answers for your baby. Something is going on with her and she's letting you know the only way she knows how.

Before going the formula route I'd try this stuff I saw that helps break down the proteins or lactose or something in the milk making it easier to digest similar to if you had to turn to an easy digesting formula. EDIT its called Colief

I will look up what its called but you pump and then add it to a bottle of your milk. Tommy tippee bottles were the only bottle my dd would take, she was slightly awkward with it at first but still took it.
