<p>I am working with a mom who has some food allergies herself.  Her 3 month old seems to be healthy and growing, but there is just something nagging at me.  So far, all I know is that she spits up long after a feeding, has eczema or dry rough skin (mom claims it's just dry skin) all over her body, and cries a bit before pooping.  Is there enough for you to suspect that there is something more than just regular newborn stuff going on?</p>

<p>It def. could be an allergy. She could try eliminating all dairy/all hidden dairy from her diet for 2 weeks and see if she can tell a difference.</p>

<p>If there's no difference, then try eliminating egg/products with cooked egg in them for 2 weeks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>She could add them both back in and try eliminating common allergens, like peanuts/tree nuts or eliminate any foods bad for reflux (fried foods, tomatoes, oranges etc).</p>

<p>My 18mth old started out very fussy, reflux-y and now has eczema on his head. He has confirmed food allergies, including corn. I hope that helps <3</p>
