I know none of this is the classic "blood in the diaper/screaming their head off/eczema everywhere" reaction that babies get when they have a serious problem with dairy. I nannied for three years for a little boy with major dairy issues so these symptoms probably wouldn't even have come in on my radar except that my wife and my MIL both have dairy intolerances and I have been watching my daughter like a hawk for signs. I know most babies would have shown symptoms from their mother's diets by now but my wife avoids dairy for her own sake so my DD hasn't been exposed to more than the barest crumb of cow's milk protein in her life.
Could someone please either tell me I'm nuts for thinking this is an intolerance or tell me I'm nuts for taking six months to second guess myself when it clearly is an intolerance?

Sounds like an intolorance/allergy to me. My daughter is allergic to dairy; but has to consume quite a bit of dairy to have blood in her stool. When she is exposed accidently to trace amounts of milk, she gets the above symptoms.

We did IgA testing and it came back clear. I'm leaning towards intolerance. I think you're on the right track here by questioning. Wish I had more answers for you... nak
