My 9.5 month old is sensitive to wheat, dairy, soy, oats and corn, and I've been trying to add foods back in to my diet (because she is mostly BF), but I'm a bit stumped at the moment. I added in dairy, and she seemed fine for about a week, when she started having horrible diarrhea and waking up in the middle of the night crying for usually about 1 hour. It seems strange that the dairy would take that long to upset her. I tried wheat on the same day that she started getting the diarrhea (before she had it), so it could be the wheat, but I haven't had that in a week now and she still has diarrhea. Now I'm realizing that I have been eating cookies with sorghum in them (I didn't know it was in them) and I had thought before (when we originally did the elimination diet) that sorghum might be a problem, but it seemed so strange to me as I'd never heard of anyone being allergic to sorghum (and it is in fact often used as a substitute for gluten allergies!) Has anyone ever heard of this? I'm really frustrated because now it means that I have to wait for her to get better and start all over again with adding foods back in to my diet, after I thought I was in the clear with dairy! Argh!
