How long after the mom eats something allergenic will the baby show symptoms? Hours? Minutes? Days?<br><br>
I ask because most days James only cries when he's hungry, needs a diaper change, or a burp, but every few days he just loses it and gets really gassy, fussy, etc. It doesn't seem to be at any particular time, so I was thinking maybe it was something I'm eating, but I'm not sure when to pay attention to the foods I'm eating.<br><br>
It's not serious enough now to do an elimination diet (ok, and it's Christmas cookie season, so I'd really rather not start out with that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I'm just curious as to timelines to see if maybe this is a cause of some of his fussiness.<br><br>
Then again, maybe he just enjoys a good meltdown every 3-4 days. This newborn parenting stuff is so confusing - he really should have come with an owner's manual!

I was going to post this too because it happens very quickly. I would say maybe an hour? Sometimes it seems like within minutes, but I know it must be longer.
