Hopefully I can explain this in a way that makes sense.
I have a 5.5 month-old LO who has been EBF. Through elimination diet following severe diarrhea, reflux, hysterical crying, hives, vomiting, and extremely low weight gain, we found out he reacts to the following foods in my diet:
He also had what appeared to be an FPIES reaction to rice.
Tried the following solids and he had hives, crying, stopped sleeping, vomiting, etc:
- Sweet potato
- Rice cereal
He does just fine on my BM with all offending foods removed, but is still gaining very poorly. We figured out he is hungry. My supply has always been a struggle. So he needs to be supplemented. My IBCLC, pedi, naturopath, and GI doctor all agree.
Problem is...I can't pump enough to supplement. And he's reacting to every formula out there. We've tried regular dairy, soy, alimentum, nutramigen, neocate, and finally elecare.
After three bottles of elecare yesterday he was projectile vomiting across the room, very fussy, and had diarrhea along with a rash all over his face.
I have no idea what to do now...
