    Not selfish at all, I did a month and a bit with the elimination diet told my paed I wanted my life/body/sanity back and dd was put on Neocate, she turned into another baby.

Is there any reason you dont want to go to neocate, or did your paed want you to choose pepti jnr first? I hope you can find answers, intolerances are sooooo difficult to figure out, good luck
    We were very lucky, we were able to successfully introduce dairy from about 1yo. Mostly just added to things like cheese on pasta or butter on toast etc, I didn't give her straight cows milk until much later. She's 3.5yo now and we don't have any problems.

    The main reason I wanted to avoid Neocate is that it's such a pain to get these days. When DD was on it we could just get the scripts from her paed, but now it requires consultation with a paediatric gastroenterologist and quite frankly I'd prefer to avoid the hassle! If he can tolerate AllerPro it'll be much easier as it's much more accessible.

    I have breastfed him for 4.5 months now and have been dairy free for about a month or so. I think that's pretty good, all things considered. I really want to do pizza & movie nights with my DD and enjoy a cheese plate with DH!

    Intolerances really do suck don't they!!

    It was very hard for me to give up breast feeding as i had no milk come in with my other kids and i really wanted to give it a good go but my babies health comes first. (i would be lying if i said i ddin't cry for like days with her to the point the nurses refered me to get assessed for pnd)


    Try not to feel bad. Just know that this stuff happens.
    It's so emotional, I bawled my eyes out when DS had his first bottle of formula. I never had much of a supply last time for various reasons, but this time I worked really hard to establish a decent enough supply that DS could be exclusively breastfed. I was so angry when he was diagnosed with CMPI, I felt ripped off!

    It sounds like you have some challenges ahead with allergies & intolerances. I hope your bub grows out of these issues eventually. Can I ask how she was diagnosed with primary lactose intolerance? My understanding was that testing babies for LI was very inaccurate?

    I would starve!! That's such a hard diet to stick to, especially when you are trying to feed a family as well as accommodate such a specialised diet.

    DS had green, slimy poos on Allerpro. It stopped his pains and rash but the green was always there. I switched to Goat formula because the paed allergist appointment was months away and he tolerated it fine. He's allergic to soy as well and vomits after the smallest amount.

    Sounds like you might need a more hydrolyzed formula like pepti junior or elecare or neocate. Allerpro is only good for mild intolerance.

    Does anyone have a bub with CMPI and thick slimy poo that's still normal breastfed baby poo colour (mustardy yellow).

    I think DS may be CMPI like DD was but his poos aren't green, so unsure I should look into this.

    If your DD was CMPI And there are other symptoms making you wonder, take a stool sample to the GP and get it tested to see if there's any trace of blood cells. It's worth getting checked. I have been told before that poo can look slimy if bub is swallowing a lot of saliva too (teething or just really drooly).

    Both my kids had green poo.
