DS has recently been diagnosed with CMPA and and nut allergies.

He reactions have been hives on skin contact for milk and hives, swollen eyes etc, etc after ingesting nuts.

However I never realised that his loose nappies could be a reaction too? He can tolerate (or so I thought) baked milk and hard cheese and has always had these.

This only occurred to me yesterday after reading more about CMPA online and I will speak to his dietitian about it tomorrow, but until then any advice?

I'm not sure what's 'normal', he doesn't seem uncomfortable or in any pain so should I just carry on as I am or stop all diary and see if there is any change?

TIA

I would think CMPA would mean to exclude all dairy

No, current advice to give what can be tolerated.

Problem is I think I may have thought DS was tolerating some diary, when in fact he is reacting in others ways.

My dd1 had multiple intolerances as a baby and toddler and had constantly loose nappies. Are you under a paediatrician? If so, I would ask their advice. Is he putting on weight? My dd seemed to outgrow it.

Certainly sounds as if it could be related.

I think it's quite hard to get a clear picture of what they can tolerate without actually taking the food out completely, then reintroducing gradually, starting with the dairy foods with least protein in.

That's certainly been the approach for both my DCs, and we've had world-class dietetic advice (sorry, can't find a way of saying that which sounds less twatty right now!).

If I were you, I'd push for that..obviously with appropriate supplementation in place for calcium etc.

mine grew out of the loose nappies just in time for potty training

My 2 and a half year old has cmpa and is soya intolerant too. Her only main symptoms were chronic diahorrea. I don't think just diahorrea is ok at all. I'd cut out all dairy and give his gut chance to heal. If he is reacting to it in this way it is likely for it to take longer to grow out of. I'd also remove all soya for a short period before testing, as a large amount of children with cmpa can't tolerate soya proteins either.

The only way to find out for sure us to exclude and see if it makes a difference

Thank you, all great advice.

In regards to soya. He's is given this at nursery, I have always given almond milk since before his nut diagnosis. However over Easter he had diary-free soya chocolate and reacted to this with hives round his mouth. So now I'm thinking he may be developing a soya allergy also?

I will try and contact the allergy clinic tomorrow and see what they suggest. I'm thinking no diary/ soya may be the way to go, but at the same time worry that will make his allergy worse.
