Edameny89 I have just started my 9week old on allerpro. Just till I can get in to see my pead as the lady at RISA recommended it as she thinks my Bub with SR might have Cmpi, too.
Do you know if it is common for them to get constipated on it?

Silent reflux bubs often put in good weight as they always want to feed as the sucking makes tem feel better.
I'd say CMPI as well given it fluctuates, probably the more dairy you have the worse she is and the less you have the better she is. This is why the last feed of the day can be so bad as you would have consumed milk during the day so it builds up in your milk.
On the RISA website, there is a checklist you can print and take with you to the paed which can often help. I agree GPs are useless but given you've found someone who has already prescribed ozemerperol means you've got someone who understands it fairly well.
Diagnoses can be a long road and they've obviously just got her on meds now to see what happens then they can look at what's been happening since and then recommend either cutting out dairy from there or upping the dose of meds. Intolerances can be very trial and error, it's not a straightforward diagnoses unfortunately.

Thanks guys. I'm having a fairly boring diet at the moment, with nothing included that I don't regularly eat. I'm hesitant to completely cut dairy from my diet at this stage. I want to see if the medicine works or not so I know WHAT it is that's helping him feel better. I want to give the medicine at least the average 10 days before changing my diet too radically. I'm already eating a little less dairy than I normally would but haven't cut it entirely. I find the lactose overload idea really interesting, and will be reading up on this!

DS is on AllerPro and while his farts are stinky, he's pooping regularly so I don't think it's anything to worry about. DD was on Neocate as a baby and the farts & poop of a Neocate baby are notorious! It didn't bother me though, it was better than the nuclear sludge she was producing before going on prescription formula.
OP - what are your bubs poos like? Mucous in the poo (like stringy, slimy, snotty consistency and lots of it) and/or blood (dark/black or red streaks) indicate irritation in the bowel which suggests an intolerance. I suggest getting bubs stool checked and make sure they check for red & white cells. DSs poo didn't look like it had blood in it, it was just super mucousy, but the test showed blood cells.
If the test does suggest an intolerance, the elimination diet is quite challenging. You'll probably be told to cut out all dairy & soy from your diet, which is harder than it seems. The problem is not lactose, it's milk/soy proteins, so lactose-free products will need to be avoided as well. You might even need to go further by cutting out gluten, some vegetable & types of fruit and all additives. Hopefully you don't have to go down this road!
DD screamed all day from SR, it was horrendous. Meds did nothing because in her case it was intolerances causing the problem.
My advice is to push, push, push until you get answers and help. We had a great paed and GP but it still took 3 months to diagnose & resolve the problem.
