    Mrstugs I know what you mean about getting Drs help. My Gp ( who is normally really good) was no help and neither was the paediatrician. They both said he would grow out of his colic. Best advice I had was from @ttc1981 ( many thanks!) to try novolac colic formula and it help so much. My bub gets eczema and the red rash around his mouth too. I didn't realise it could be caused by food allergies. I just got a cream from the Dr. I'll have to watch for flare ups.

    I agree with ttc1981 have you thought about formula? Your mental health is very important too

    Ttc let us know when you test!!!! Ah the tww torture

    Not as easy as formula when his allergies are what they are. Dairy soy corn suddenly there's nothing left. Honestly I believe formula would only make things worse because he gets all his comfort from boob it would be taking his most precious thing away when he needs it most.

    @MrsTugs just out of curiosity have you looked into eosinophilic gastroenteritis? Just wondering if the severe food allergies could be more of a gastro issue? I really feel for you and your poor little bubba 🙁

    What about goats formula meant to be the best! For His skin hopefully we used dermaveen oil in the baths and worked a treat now we use dermaveen soap free wash and there creams! Hopefully the allergy clinic helps! You poor thing must be exhausting... are you pumping so you get a rest?

    No he's allergic to all (trialled) animal milk. The make up between the different milks is too similar.

    I can't pump - I don't get much milk yield and he doesn't latch to a bottle.

    Family don't respect his allergies so I don't feel safe leaving him unsupervised
