so here's the story: DD has always had a perfect latch, but really at the end of the day our breastfeeding relationship isn't that great. i mean she is exclusively breastfed and I LOVE breastfeeding. but there are so many problems (she won't stay on the boob, she will ONLY feed in a dark room, she constantly arches her back...). i have cut dairy and that has helped tremendously with keeping her on the boob more. but i think there might be more stuff...at what point can i get her tested to see what she reacts to? my elimination diet seems to be producing mixed results...thus wanting to test.

I am not sure, I would ask a pediatrician or an allergist, but I would think not before 6 months of age. Until that point, she's still got bits of your immune system, so you wouldn't get an accurate read.
