Breast fed baby with dairy and wheat sensitivity

I wondered if anyone had any experience of this?

My 4 month old has had a dairy and wheat sensitivity since birth - on the advice of the HV, I cut out dairy at first, but she was still windy, didn't sleep well, rumbly tummy, green poos, general discomfort and small red rash behind her ears. When I cut the dairy out it marginally improved, so I cut out wheat as well, and since then she has become a lot calmer, more content, sleeps slightly longer at night, windy still but brings it up better and no explosive poos....

Anyway yesterday I ate some chips which had wheat flour in them (don't ask) and she was up nearly every hour from two am, wriggling around in discomfort, windy and not settling.

As we are getting closer to weaning her at 6 months, I was wondering do I need to investigate this any further or will it sort itself out?

The likelihood is that she has an intolerance or allergy to wheat & dairy so you need to speak to a health professional before trying to introduce either of those to her diet.

You might find more answers if you post on the Allergies board on here.
