Hi i have a 10month old bub who has a possible milk protein allergy. She has been BF since birth and solids started at 6mths.
She had a reaction to formula mixed with rice cereal at 7 months and Dr advised to keep her off cow milk till older. At 9mths she had another reaction to cows milk that was in baby risotto packet and got swollen face, eyes, itchy face and eyes and rash on face, body that then turned into eczema. So have had skin prick test which was neg and blood test which was also neg.
Dr has asked for a challenge test to be done at 12 months in hospital and no dairy till then.
He advised to supplement feed her with soy formula but bub doesn't like it. Well i'm not sure if it's the formula or bottle that she doesn't like. I have tried various teets and sippy cups but she just wants boobie!
Which is fine by me but she has dropped to the 10% line after always being on the 50% till 5 months then slowly declining till now.
I feel like i don't have enough milk for her and just want her to gain and be content etc.
Anyone else out there with similar issues and negative test's but still reactions? I'm not sure now if it is even an allergy or something totally unrelated....
Please help/advise on BF and any advice would be greatly appreciated......
