Anyway, the LC says she sees a high correlation between moms with oversupply (had some form or another with all three children) and food sensitivities.
So, I am just wondering...how many on this list with babes with food sensitivities also have an abundance of milk?
I do believe that excess lactose from oversupply is harsh on a baby's gut, so, in that sense I can see it being one more thing to tip the baby toward food sensitivities (but most definitely not the only thing). Dr. Jack Newman has even documented blood in the stool of babies due to OALD (kellymom.com has a link).
Ds2 doesn't have any issues that I am aware of , Ds1 ( cannot tolerate gluten, egg, dairy or soy.
Have you tried sage for your oversupply? I ate sage leaves for months with ds1 without much help but with ds2 I finally got smart and found some sage tea and another tea over at earthmamaangelbaby.com that really helped alot. It's called No More Milk tea, so don't drink to much, just enough to relieve the pressure a little.

I had no drugs/antibiotics whatsoever with pregnancy and delivery and ate a relatively TF/Brewer diet during pregnancy ...I have been trying to figure out why we were cursed with these food problems. I'm SO interested to read this thread.
I did pump for my oversupply, starting at 1 week, at the advice of an LC. She had me pump off about 5 oz before each feeding, so that DS got a better balance of fore- and hind- milk at each feeding. I froze the pumped milk and DS got it starting at about 4 mos., when I went back to work FT and DH stayed home with DS. hmmm.
