I think that my 6 week old son may have a dairy allergy, but I just do not know. Here are his symptoms: bad diaper rash, projectile vomit about two or three times a day, regular spit up, constipation where it hurts him to touch his stomach about once a day, wet burps, hiccups, he is very congested at night and he has smelly breath. Many of these symptoms would make me think that he has reflux but he is not irritable and he is gaining weight fine. I would appreciate any thoughts. Oh, he had an ultrasound today to rule out Pyloric Stenosis and it showed that he was ok.

Yes, it does sound like it could be an allergy. Why don't you post this on the allergy forum?

Sorry your little one is uncomfortable.

ETA Why don't you try to cut dairy out of your diet for a few weeks and see if that helps. It could be other foods as well so you may need to do some other elimination.
