My last baby seemed to be sensitive to dairy in my diet up until about 7-8 months old. He tested negative to everything the allergist tested for with the skin test, but had eczema that cleared up when I gave up dairy. He's 2yo old now and eats dairy with no problems. My now 6yo also had some eczema as a baby, but I didn't know then about a possible link to diet, so we never tried avoiding anything with him. My now 9yo had terrible colic as a baby, but again, I had no idea at the time that there could be any dietary link, so I never tried anything. My 6 & 9 yo both eat a wide range of foods (including plenty of dairy) and don't seem to be bothered by anything now.
Now, I'm pregnant again and wondering if there's anything I can do to try to avoid issues with this baby. I don't know much about leaky gut/healing the gut, but the little I've read seems to make sense to me. Like maybe it's not really them, but it's me and my gut that's letting things in that are causing trouble. If that's the case, is there anything I can safely do while pregnant to fix it? I'm only 8 weeks right now.
Thanks very much!
Oh also, I don't think I have any issues with dairy as I did not feel any different when I gave up dairy.
