DS2 is 12wks and has already been diagnosed with CMPI & soy intolerance.
I've now been asked to eliminate gluten from my diet for 2wks too as a test. he's still vomiting excessively, has a rash that wont go away on his face , some green poos & diarrhea every time.
For those with gluten and/or wheat allergies, can you please tell me if these were symptoms you experienced?
I'm currently breastfeeding and it's already difficult cutting out major food groups that I love!

I don't have gluten intolerance, but coeliac. I know with coeliac there are over 300 associated symptoms and no two people are the same. My mum has really classic coeliac symptoms, but I didn't.
Not sure if it is the same with gluten intolerance?
It deffo sounds like he is intolerant to something, have a look up re fructose intolerance as well.

Thanks Beebs - I've just finished the FODMAP elimination diet, which tackles fructose, with no obvious changes.
That's why we are now up to the 'biggy' test!

You have probably done this, but what about a blood test? We did so much elimination with DD1 as we were told her symptoms were classic intolerance. After 4 months we weren't seeing results so just went back to a normal diet, a few weeks later she was fine, and has been since. I believe now that she had a virus, I am so annoyed at myself for not getting the blood test done (however, one was never offered, only expensive allergy testing which we did!)

No haven't done it yet thanks MummaOJ, will ask for it after doctor gets back from holidays though.
I've already noticed a difference since cutting out dairy & soy - which DS1 was intolerant too as well until about 15mths. So I know allergies are at least part of the issue.

Sorry Pesca I just realised my post sounded like I was all doubty about intolerances - I didn't mean it like that, and it does sound like your DS has an intolerance to an unknown, just a suggestion re: the blood test. I hope you get an answer, it is so hard.

Is it possible to do an intolerance test? I'm not sure how they work or the cost, but perhaps it can give you more definite answers. Would save waiting the extra time in case it's not gluten.

It does sound like intolerance/s to me.
Sometimes they can be 'outgrown' so just bear that in mind.
I would try eliminating all gluten and see if that makes a difference. If it does, reintroducing rye/oats etc and he might be ok with those. Which would be good as it gives a lot more options.
Also, I would highly recommend some high strength probiotics. Sometimes that is enough on it's own. Actually, I'd try that first.
This is a link to the best ones I know of...
Also, depending on his age you could introduce some home fermented foods like kefir. Kefir has helped my gut heal a lot. I love it!
