Just writing to see who has any experience with CMPI and whether or not you think it sounds like my son may have it. I'm sorry if the post is all over the place, I'm terribly sleep deprived so just writing things as I remember them.
From day 1 breastfed DS2 had been a more 'spewy' baby compared to his brother. His burps always seemed quite wet and on several occasions I said to my husband that perhaps he had a little bit of reflux (which I thought was normal to some extent with new bubbas) the spews didn't seem to worry him and he gained weight just fine. He has also been and still is now a very gassy, farty baby and his farts always smell absolutely terrible.
DS2 has always been quite wakeful, feeding 2 hourly day and night and only catnapping during the day. From quite early on he has had pretty bad eczema which seemed to flare up if he ever had a formula bottle when he was at home with his dad. We had seen the gp about this but he just prescribed some cream which did help between flare ups.
You could probably say my diet is high in dairy, a smoothie with yoghurt and milk most days, along with some cheese and even a glass of milk here and there.
Now DS2 is almost 6 months old and sleeping terribly at night. Last night for example his longest stretch of sleep (first stretch) was 2 hours and as the night went on he was waking sometimes only 20 mins after he'd settled back to sleep. When he wakes he seems quite uncomfortable and is quite gassy to doing several farts and also squirming a little and farting after I put him back down after a feed.
Could any of this be a sign of a dairy sensitivity? Or something else?
Thanks for any advice!
