DS is 2 1/2 and from the time that he was born until around 12 months, I suspected food allergies and intolerances because every single diaper he ever had looked full of mucus, he had eczema, terrible gas and bloating and was generally grumpy. Nothing was ever confirmed though (I did do ED for PB, dairy and soy). Things seemed to mellow out and I also laid off of my suspicions.
Fast forward to now, when he is 2 1/2 and still has pretty awful poop. In the past several months DH and I recall seeing only a few solid poops. I am again suspecting PB and peanuts. I've noticed when we've skipped his favorite PB sandwich, he tends to have more normal poop for a day. This morning, he had PB on his waffle and two awful poops in the past hour have occurred.
Also, he has had several random vomiting episodes and the last three I realized happened immediately after he ate either a cashew or a Lara bar with a cashew in it. Like immediate vomiting, then he is fine.
Could these be signs of an allergy? I guess I always assumed a nut and peanut allergy would cause breathing issues, not poop and vomiting issues.
Please share your thoughts with me so I can determine whether or not we should do some allergy testing once and for all. Our dr wasn't a big fan of testing back when DS was a baby, but now he may be more likely to refer us.
