My son i protein intolerant and gets severe allergic colitis with a number of foods. Unfortunaltey as they are non-IGE, we cannot test for them and depend on extremely slow food trials. So far my son is still on neocate with rice as his only safe food. He is 8.5 months.

My son has several allergies but some are non-IgE mediated. You can test for them but some allergists don't do the test. It is a skin patch test. Ask your allergist about that. Hemp milk is really good as a supplement for the neocate too. we used Neocate Jr for a while and are now on Elecare. We mix the elecare with the hemp milk and he drinks that straight as it is more nutritious than rice milk.

Are these for your 9 month old? That is likely why you are getting all negatives. It is more and more unlikely to get accurate results the farther below the age of three the child is... If you have pinned down anything with elimination diets that will be your best for of testing until he is at LEAST 18 months old... I'm sorry..I should have noticed that sooner....
