For those that tried elimination diets, was it in consultation with a nutritionist or lactation consultant or other?
I did it in consultation with a dietitian referred to me by my DD's paed gastroenterologist.
Whilst this helped, it didn't alleviate all of DS's issues and he still wasn't putting on any weight. Unlike a previous poster, I also didn't agree with allowing my baby to be uncomfortable with belly aches and constant vomiting, so decided to switch to prescription formula. I felt guilty, but it was the best thing for DS's health and that was most important to me. Ours was a lot harder to control because of it being soy too.
I'm pleased to state that at 14mths he can now tolerate soy and small amounts of dairy, which is great! So it doesn't last forever
If you want some safe food suggestions, let me know.
My Ds has a bad case of milk protein allergy and it s still rampant at 23 months he can not have it all including soy and his on neocate (script formula ) you have to remove all diary from your diet and maybe look at seeing a pead dietitian good luck Hun
Will get on later tonight when the little ones are in bed.
Just remember it can take a few weeks for all dairy to be gone from your system, so don't expect immediate results. Also if this helps but still doesn't control it completely, then remove soy as see what happens.
I don't think I eat any soy... Yep I sure do love it but I'm willing to give it a good shot for my bubby..
I am hoping to see results quickly but know it can take up to a month so will see how we go..
