Dairy intolerance?


Hi all,
My 4 month old is (and always has been) a terrible sleeper. She wakes constantly through the night, usually crying, and from 4am onwards it's a lost cause. During the day she will only nap in the carrier.

I've started wondering recently if her very disturbed sleep and frequent night wakenings have a cause and was concerned about dairy (she is breastfed but I eat dairy).

Anyone got any experience of this and what types of symptoms? I heard babies usually get blood in nappy with this with DD doesn't but just wanted other opinions...

He never had an actual intolerance, but my first son got pretty upset from dairy. Anytime I ate it while breastfeeding he got very bad gas, lots of crying, tight bloated belly, quite a bit of mucous in his poop.

Thanks for your reply. Did you stop eating dairy while breastfeeding or cut down on dairy?

I tried to cut down as much as I could and it helped a lot.

Hi
I don't breastfeed but DD2 has CMPA which is cows milk protein allergy . She was not diagnosed until a few weeks after weaning.

From birth she had reflux a rash on her face and struggled with feeds . GP just dagnoised reflux and gave medicine and we were advised to change formula which we did .
When we weaned it just got worse her main symptoms are gastro . We eventually after many GP visits got a Gp who diagnosed her correctly and sent us to the peads and dietician !

DD2 didn't have any blood in her stools they were just very mucusy !

If you feel something's not right cut diary out of your diet i think it can take upto here months for diary to leave your system (I may be wrong about his but my gp advised three months between any exposure to milk)
Maybe go to your GP and see what they say .

Good luck
