Babies are naturally born with a leaky gut, so that BM can be processed through quickly. As they mature, the gut lining closes up. Antibiotics also can do damage, and make the lining more leaky, or keep it from tightening up.
You also probably have leaky gut, if your LO is reacting through your BM. Normally, your food is broken down before it ever gets to your BM... but with leaky gut, larger proteins are getting through, going into your BM, and then causing a reaction in your LO (because LO's gut is also leaky and can't filter those large proteins.)
Check out my blog (link in sig) for more info about all that.
