Where do I go from here?

Ds is 8 months nearly l, only breast fed.

He suffered from reflux and was very sicky- I narrowed it down to eggs and coffee. Uni had either off these, te reflux and sick would be worse

On Sunday, we had poached eggs. He was grumpy all day, off lunch and dinner and very sick all evening. He settled at two in the morning.

I don't think it was a bug as no one else has been ill.

He had a bit if batter in Yorkshire pub last night and was grumpy all eve and sounded refluxy again

So what do I do now!? Any advice and help would be very much appreciated. grin

Well, when I had a similar issue with DS1, I spoke to our GP who simply said, "well, don't give him eggs, then!" Quite obvious, really.

And early egg white intolerance isn't uncommon and is often grown out of. Just leave them out of his diet and re-visit after a few months. Often, eggs can be tolerated in processed cooked foods before they can be tolerated whole.

I agree- you don't need to do anything except avoid eggs. Babies who are sensitive to certain foods will often grow out of it as they get older. I wouldn't worry at this stage.
