Re: Reaction to Elecare?

I know that taking a break from a food can intensify the reaction - I know I've seen it in more than one place, but this is the first one I found that references a break: "The disease presents in two phases: the initial presentation is that of a chronic disease while the antigen is being ingested. This can be followed by an acute phase if the antigen is removed from the diet and subsequently re-ingested, with symptoms occurring about two hours after ingestion. In a young child, the...

Amanda, you are on top of things this morning, answered my post in both spots!! I am really starting to think it is from the reintorduction. We are supposed to get our Vanilla Elecare today, so I will try that and see what happens. Hopefully there will be no issue, but my instinct says otherwise.

So sorry for you and for Carter. Nika seemed to have a very similar to Neocate last spring. Our GI dr gave us Neocate, Elecare, And Elecare vanilla to trial. I mixed 20% formula with 80% breast milk on a number of occasions, a few days or weeks apart, while I was working part-time last spring. It was a struggle to get her to drink the bottles and she seemed to react to all of them by waking in the middle of the night in pain, unable to sleep, and having difficult middle of the night poops.

I understand what you guys are going trough, my daughter wasn't able to tolerate any formula, we even had to take her off the breast, at that time we didn't know what was wrong with her, just the fact that she was in pain and had blood in her poop, so the GI doc pit her on something diferent, when she was 10 months I tried to give her Elecare and she vomited all the bottle so we kept giving her what my GI told me about something that is not formula but it has all the nutrients and vitamins I...

RadN4, did the new Elecare contain dha/ara, that the original one did not? I read about it last spring and saw that the neonate had dha added in and thought that may have been the problem. I just ordered Elecare for infants to try again and it looks like they just started adding it in there, too. Just a thought...

Thanks everyone! The elecare was the old one without the dha. I informed his allergist and also told her I would not be comfortable giving him elecare again at home. If she wants us to try again, it needs to be in the hospital. We are still suffering from the 2 ozs 4 days later.

Re: Milk Supply Worries

As far as boosting your supply, dark green leafy veggies are good ones and oatmeal (if you aren't eliminating oats) is another excellent one-- doesn't have to be in excess, just a bowl of oatmeal every day or making homemade "healthy" oatmeal cookies/bars to eat each day. Hydration as you said really is the key. I used to drink a glass of something immediately preceeding a nursing and immediately after a nursing, and then drink normally according to temperature (summers were brutal!) in...

Thanks, Amanda Has anyone out there taken prolactin to increase your supply? When I was reading up on prolactin it looked like there were certain activities I could do to increase the prolactin levels in my body (I'd need my husband to help out here). Guess I'll get off the computer and see if I can go increase my prolactin levels w/o a supplement

So, we're EBF, but now my supply is getting really close to what he's taking in everyday.  I've always been like a squirrel when it comes to my milk, I save as much as possible.  Before we realized Matthew had FPIES and that he reacted to...
