My daughter is just over 2 months old. When she was only a few weeks old she started spitting up entire feedings and being in a lot of pain and discomfort. I cut out all milk/dairy from my diet and the spitting stopped after about 2 weeks once the milk was completely out of my system.
The past 2 days she has started spitting up a lot again and is crying and fussing and I can tell she's very uncomfortable again. Just like when I had milk in my diet.
The only new thing I've had in the past couple days is hotdogs.
My question is, could she have developed a new allergy to something? I'm afraid I'm going to have to cut out gluten....
I'd love to hear any words of wisdom from all of you!!!
Hmm. My son was highly sensitive to dairy AND soy. Have you tried eliminating soy as well? It's pretty common for allergies to both to go hand in hand. From what I have read, it's pretty rare for babies to be allergic to food that is passed through breast milk, but entirely possible. I would probably consider other culprits before assuming something as rare as a gluton allergy, in my opinion. Have you spoken to the pediatrician to rule out other issues?

I was going to say soy too. 60% of infants who are allergic to cow milk protein are also allergic to soy protein. I cut dairy out of my diet over a month ago and now a little blood has appeared in my son's stool, soy is next (it happened 24 hrs after several meals that had soy in them). Unfortunately my favorite hot dogs contain hyrdrolyzed soy protein.
ugh....I cut out soy milk but not soy in foods. EVERYTHING has either milk or soy (or both!) in it. But, you ladies may be right. I know when I took out soy milk things got a lot better....maybe I have to eliminate all soy.
This is all so strange to me, I BF my son and never had to even think about what I was eating, milk, soy, spicy stuff, gassy stuff, nothing at all bothered him.
Did you check the hotdogs to make sure they are dairy free? Some hot dogs contain milk products. I know when my little one was allergic to milk, I made the mistake of eating 2 cookies that has non-fat dry milk listed as the very last ingredient, and my poor baby broke out with eczema and had blood in his bowel movement just from those 2 tiny shortbread cookies.
