My DS is 11 months old- i plan on breastfeeding until he's at least 2 years old.... he has a milk protein intolerance ( diagnosed w-blood in stool at 5 weeks) I've been Dairy- SOY ( just in case)- EGG and PEA ( red cheeks) -free ( peanuts also to be on safe side)- for 10 months. The allergist at Children's hospital said to try giving him dairy at a year( I'M Petrified!) Is it better for ME to try dairy- since he gets less through my milk- or is it worse b/c it stays in my system for a while? I've been waiting for so long to be able to eat different things- but now - I'm scared! He had horrible colic! Any advice ( experience) would be so helpful! Thanks! I also posted before w- no responses- he got a small pimply rash about a month ago- a week after i tried some eggs( I HAVE tried eggs and peas every couple of months b/c he just gets red cheeks) He DIDN'T get red cheeks this time- HOORAY!!The rash is just on his arms and legs- very small- looks like little pimples. The allergist said it sounds like Keratis pilaris and is unrelated- i have since gone off of eggs- there's still a rash- dunno if anyone knows about this.
