Milk Intolerance?


If you have or had a baby with a milk/dairy intolerance, can you please tell me what his/her symptoms were?

I'm fairly positive my baby has a milk intolerance, but the Dr's aren't sure. They said it's a possibility.

My daughter had a dairy allergy that she has just recently grew out of. Her main symptoms were skin issues (hives whenever I consumed a lot of dairy) and sometimes mucousy poops.

My baby also had reflux, but I noticed any time I ate dairy she would get so upset. Screaming, inconsolable, awful smelling gas, green mucousy poops

If you are bf, cut out all dairy for a few days and see if it helps.

I went off dairy while I was bfing her. Also gave her Zantac and it helped tons. She grew out of it around the time she turned 1 and was fine when we switched her to cows milk

DD2 has CMPA cows milk protein allegery went undiagnosed for nearly a year .

When she was a baby she had reflux , rash on her face , discomfort at every feed , unsettled , mucus in her stools . We switched so many formulas and GP just kept saying it was reflux. Same issues when weaning. She just brought back mouthfuls of food ! It was when she was just about to turn 1 and we started switching to cows milk she was really ill.

She’s just turned two now and we are working our way up the “milk ladder” we had a struggle getting her diagnosed . Seems this way for many other people .

There’s a Facebook group called CMPA support . Loads of lovely helpful women on there of Allergy UK .

They usually don’t test for it as some have ige reactions which is an instant one and some are non ige which is a delayed one. Usually they go by an elimantion diet . I would cut out all dairy and ask for a trial of Neocate or another hydrolysed formula (if on formula ). Keep a record of food and symptoms and ask for a referral to a dietician , we also waited ages for this!! .

It’s a minefield at first but it does get easier !

LO had milk protein allergy until he turned 6 months. Started at 2 months cuz he had blood in stool. Doc said for me to cut out all foods with milk. That's anything with dairy like breads and crackers. The blood disappeared after a while but if I eat some cake it'll come back right next say.

After he turned 6 months I tried eating some cake and this time no blood in stool ever since! That was the only symptom though. He wasn't bothered by it at all.
