Re: Food Intolerance Question...yet again.....

I would highly recommend you contact your ped and get tested for reflux. Your son has classic symptoms for reflux.
I have had 3 out of 4 kids have reflux. My youngest has it the worse. You def need to go in and see your ped and let them know what is going on. They will probably do an upper GI test.

Yes my first had reflux as well as food intolerance issues but he literally screamed all day and half the night...so for some reason I think well he doesn't scream all the time. I think for some reason I don't want to think it could be reflux...we had such a terrible time with our first and such a bad GI doctor. Especially since most of his fussiness comes right after he eats makes me think it could be reflux too. I guess I thought maybe if he has an intolerance it could be causing that too.....but we are seeing his doctor today so he should have an idea.

our GI doctor said that 9 times out of 10 if a baby has food/protein intolerance than they will also have reflux. Something about the acids in their body is extra high.

Re: Food Intolerance Question...yet again.....

Well we saw his doctor....he said to give it two weeks of no dairy because it can take that long to make a difference. He said if he isn't better by then to try cutting out beef, and if not then soy, and then eggs.....and if that doesn't work he'll send us to a pedi GI. They did test his stools and there was no blood which is good...but the plan is still the same.

I asked about the reflux and he said well he is gaining very well, I don't usually treat reflux unless they aren't gaining. He said reflux won't cause mucous...duh lol but I think it might be bothering him was my point. So I don't know....they can gain and have reflux though, right?? If that's causing his fussiness.....which it might be. I guess we'll wait and see what happens.

We had to cut out ALL dairy, soy, and peanuts. ALL soy. (Even soy lecithin.) I would spent hours and hours in the supermarket and come out with like five things. For us, soy was a biggie. DS #2 was like a different baby after I quit soy!

yes, they can be gaining weight and have reflux. If you don't need a referal I would go ahead and see a ped. GI; they are definitly more qual. to diagnose reflux. That way you just get everything taken care of. You don't have to play ginny pig with your child and don't allow them to either.
