I'm suspecting MSPI in my 5 month old who also has reflux (had very mucousy stools which often appear to have dark brown/red spots, presumably blood, mixed in with it. Often has dark orange or greenish tinge in stools also) and have a ped referral app't next week. I've been on a dairy elimination diet and also have tried to eliminate soy after not seeing that much improvement with dairy alone gone. Have only been off soy a few days and haven't noticed any change yet, other than not as much blood in stool today. Also had issues I think with oversupply but block feeding seemed to fix that. I've switched to almond milk...but have noticed that it has d-alpha-tocopherol (vitamin e) and it seems this is soy-derived.
I've done a quick google search and it seems that there doesn't seem to be any research proving a link of Vitamin E to allergic reactions in soy allergic people (ie the medical establishment seems to not consider it a problem???) However, I would like to know if any soy allergic or soy intolerant people out there have noticed they react to this form of vitamin e?
I'm basically wondering if I need to find another multivitamin and switch to a different brand of milk...or if this little bit of vitamin e wouldn't actually make a difference.
I think we're dealing with a protein intolerance (as opposed to allergy) and I also wonder if with intolerances, if the amount ingested makes a difference? e.g. would there be a bigger reaction with a big glass of soy milk (versus a tiny trace amount ingested).
