Ds is 2 next month and has cmpi. Diagnosed at 3 weeks old and managed very successfully from then ( i went dairy free when bf and he tolerates soy fine). As we are so used to being dairy free now I've been in no rush to do the milk ladder, but decided this week to try it. He's had one digestive biscuit for 2 days and today (day 3) he's had 3 poos at nursery which were yellow and diarrhoea. Doesn't seem in any discomfort or any other symptoms yet ( though excema may come later). Does this mean we should stop? Or should I keep with the digestives and see if it settles down? I obviously won't move to next level. Any advice appreciated!
I'd say a fail BUT digestives are step 2, so you might want to start more gradually
Scarlet, if that's the worst of it, is personally drop back to rung one to check but keep going... we always had a settling in period with our earlier reintroductions while his gut got used to the new food. If it doesn't settle, though, then perhaps give it a bit more time before trying. We had about 8 months between milk trials where he spectacularly failed rung one, to where he passed every step.
Thanks both! I can't believe I missed the first rung I'll drop back down to the first rung and see how it goes
