Dealing with high need baby or "colic" (reflux and/or dairy allergy?) - Page 2

post #21 of 23

I have found that the occasional small amount of dairy seems to be okay.  I did indulge in a few pieces of dark chocolate over the holidays.  I still use butter in moderation.  However when I tried to re-introduce homemade plain yogurt into my diet, we had a more severe reaction.  She had an eight-hour painful 'colic' session & I felt horrible!  I will probably try to re-introduce some foods back into my diet in a month or so and see how it goes.   If she reacts, I will wait longer.  Right now moderation works well for us.  I also keep a freezer full of Larry and Luna's coconut bliss 'ice cream' - its so good that it makes me forget all about yogurt or ice cream.

 

I have mild dairy allergies.  My doctor said that it is possible my baby is reacting to my antibodies and not the dairy protein.

Really? Wow... How can you figure out though if your baby has her own allergies or just reacting to yours? I didn't even know the baby could react to the antibodies in a bad way...I was concerned because I have antibodies to my own thyroid, but no doctor I've talked to seems to know if this could be a problem. A lot of hypo moms bf, so hopefully not.

I have heard that a lot of babies who have a dairy allergy are sensitive to soy as well. Best of luck, mama!
