"look for trends"....very good observation to make Amanda, and one we'd like to begin to put compile and connect as there does seem to be some shared trends....and bonds created with the families whose kids share them. A research doctor did tell me that they are doing some studies on the different immune responses seen in FPIES- how some kids respond to the elimination diet and others do not as well (my Sam). Thank you for sharing your story...and your connected observations!

Hi! And welcome to the group! I am glad you have found us, but sorry you have to be here. It is so hard to watch our little ones struggle. What you are describing sounds very much like a classic FPIES reaction to rice. The other issues you are having with your little guy being reactive to things in your milk can also be pretty common to FPIES. It sounds like you have some great support from a good allergist. I would suggest taking some articles to the allergist and/or GI and see what they...

Thank you! We actually have not been to an allergist yet because I thought my son's GERD and allergies were under control after seeing the GI, but I guess I was wrong and am now convinced that FPIES is also an issue. I actually don't think we ever reached a baseline and that could by why he is still spiting up/vomiting a few hours after every feeding (I was told that might not go completely away, so I guess I over looked it). The rice was by far the worse reaction, with puddles and puddles...

HI, My little boy is 10 months, I'm still breastfeeding, I've had to eliminate, Dairy, eggs, Tomato, capsicum and spices so far so good, but hard roads I've lost 23kg on this diet. Good luck.

Its great to hear your 3 yr old outgrew it. For us my child had fpies to breastmilk no matter what I took out. I had to switch her to nutramigen which she tolerated ok. But elemental formula might be a good option if your doctor agrees to it. For ours she started out with horrible explosive diarrhea and over time progressed to vomitting from birth to 4 1/2 months. Good luck I hope they get it under control quickly

That's great news that your 2.5 year old has grown out of her FPIES. That gives me hope for my newly 2 year old. I've been too hesitant to test him out on his beef and dairy allergy. As for symptoms of your 8 week old, that's when I started noticing something was off feeding wise with my baby. He did have runny diapers through out the night, woke up fussy constantly, and cried ALOT but the doctors would not diagnose him as colic. So yes, there is a possibility that he could have FPIES. But...

Hi, I am sorry to hear that your little one is reacting. My DD (now 2.5 and FPIES free) used to have attacks from corn and carob. This was noticed at around 3 weeks of age, when we tried thickening her feeds. She still reacted to corn at 9 months old and still is intolerant to carob now. Might be worth a shot? I hope you have your answers soon.

Amanda B. - Matthew's Mommy

AmandaB ·
Here's the "short" version :) We're EBF here, so Matthew had nothing but "Mommy's Milk" until he was six months.  He had textbook FPIES reactions to his first two foods (rice and peas).  I took him to the doctor after the second rice...

FPIES?

DSmyWorld ·
I'm new around here and was wondering if anyone thought my son's symptoms sounded like FPIES. DS has been EBF since birth and was diagnosed with GERD and food allergies/intolerances at 2 months. I was put on a strict elimination diet and DS was given...
