Hi all. Anyone had any experience with dairy intolerance? My GP suggested a few weeks ago cutting out dairy - baby was feeding constantly and spewing almost every time. Turns out he was having the 6 week growth spurt. I cut dairy for a week and it didn't seem yo make as much difference as going back to feeding every couple of hours - still a bit spewy. He's been a vomity baby from birth;tomatoes didn't seem yo help so I've not eaten them for a month.
He's now 8 weeks old and the vomiting seems to habe come back strongly - two massive voms today. I had a very dairy heavy day yesterday so wondering if it might be that (have had none today!).
My question is how do I identify if it is a dairy intolerance (or something else Im eating). I'm breastfeeding, in case that wasn't obvious!
All suggestions gratefully received; totally over having to change baby and myself multiple times a day!
My baby is cmpi and from what I understand it can take upto 2 weeks for dairy to leave your system. You need really to be completely dairy free for 2 weeks to see a difference, and that means completely dairy free - checking all labels as dairy ends up in some surprising things - ketchup anyone??
Also just to add that for my ds it is a build up of dairy that causes the problem.
Finally has the dr suggested anything for the reflux, eg gaviscon?
Ok, I'll get a doctor's appointment and discuss reflux. I haven't been to bothered up to now cos although it was frustrating to change him/me/being it wasn't the end if the world and he never seemed upset by it, but the last couple of days he's clearly been distressed by the throwing up.
