Quick update. Went to see a paed yesterday who confirmed it sounds like cows milk protein enteropathy and in his experience most cases just have mucusy bloody poo but the babies are otherwise well and happy. Most will grow out of it by 12 months so he wants me to carry on being dairy free and then challenge him at 11 months. He thinks egg allergy is less likely so even though he had the bloody mucus after the egg it might just be coincidence but best to hold off eggs for now if he's doing ok.
I'm happy with the plan, it's a pain being dairy and egg free but I'm starting to get used to it now so only 4 more months!!
Glad you have some results, the first 3 weeks for me were hard but there's heaps of substitutes; look up paleo and vegan recipes
Cheeses are hard to find and they are gross and sweet William do a dairy free chocolate or there's always dark chocolate
I've started getting used to dark chocolate as its my quick sweet fix! I'm having to make an effort to eat high calorie foods as I lost so much weight in the first few weeks but now I've started making vegan brownies, bliss balls etc the weight seems to be going back on! Luckily ds seems to be ok with me still eating soya so although I don't eat loads and use almond milk I havnt been cutting out foods with traces of soy.
For those of you with babies who couldn't tolerate cows milk or soya what foods did you give that are rich in calcium? Ds2 is 8 months and we are doing a combination of blw and purées so any suggestions welcome. I'm still bf and taking calcium and vit d supplement.
Out of interest for those of you with babies with cmpi did they grow out of it? If so when?
I know it's early days as ds2 is only 9 months but a few days ago I gave him a couple of biscuits without checking the label and he's now theres lots of mucus again in his poo as they had milk in. Also for those who breastfed did you find you could get away with eating food with traces in? I've been a bit naughty and for the last few weeks have been having the occasional piece of banana bread or biscuit and he seemed to be ok with this but now I'm being strict again. I'm on holiday in Spain now and I'm really missing dairy and eggs especially the foods that I usually love such as tortilla, croquettas, cheese, pastries. What we do for our children!!
My kids are 5 and 3 and haven't grown out if it yet
