My 14 month old daughter doesn't seem able to tolerate wheat or dairy. I am cutting dairy out of my diet - slowly - it is so hard but I'm almost there. But I still eat wheat. She nurses 8 - 14 times in a 24 hour period. She doesn't eat either of those things. But she has terrible gas. She wakes up every hour or so at night drawing up her knees to her tummy and being very very gassy and her tummy rumbling. What could be causing this? Those are the kinds of reactions she has when she eats wheat or dairy...but it's so bad. If she can't do wheat, could oats bother her? She eats a lot of oats. If I cut that out what will I feed her?? That's like the only grain I can get her to eat. We are going to the allergist but reading others' experiences of the allergist doesn't make me feel very hopeful especially since her symptoms are all digestive. Doesn't anyone have answers? I'm worried my poor baby's digestive system is getting damaged or something because I can't figure out what's going on and why her tummy bothers her so much... Thanks for any advice or support...
