Re: Help Pinpointing LO's Trigger Foods!

Marielle ·
Hi! My son is 10.5 months and we’re still trying to figure out his exact triggers. We know for sure soy is his main trigger, but he also can’t tolerate peas & green beans. So the green beans could’ve been the culprit. Also, chickens are usually fed a soy based feed so the chicken could’ve triggered it as well, depending on how sensitive he is to soy. Hope that helps at all! It is challenging for sure. My baby has improved a lot since we figured out soy and peas. He’s gained weight and at...

Hi all! My 6-month-old son Gus was recently diagnosed as FPIES to rice, as well as having a positive IgE reaction to eggs. We are in the process of trialing foods. I was wondering if anyone could help us come up with a food plan of action. His safe foods are below: carrots sweet potatoes apples bananas pears avocado peas Squash - in the process of testing. He loves to eat and we would like to make sure he continues to grow and get all the nutrients he needs. Any help would be great! Edit: He...

Help Pinpointing LO's Trigger Foods!

Hello! I am new to the FPIES world and could really use a bit (A LOT) of help determining what is causing my EBF 7-month-old son's distress. I apologize for the long story, but I have nowhere else to turn at this point. I get almost nothing done around the house on a daily basis. Background: Around 1-month-old, he started having loose, mucousy, slightly bloody stools, so naturally I contacted his doctor. Dairy was the go-to culprit and soy closely follows due to the similar protein link. All...

Hi Jennifer, My 7 mo daughter was just diagnosed with fpies. We and our Dr's had a suspicion at 5 months. We just started her on Apples this week and then going to Bananas. We are going to try the foods that are not listed as been common triggers and then going from there. We have only had a official diagnoses for 6 days now so we are just building our food plan. I am looking forward to what others say they are doing so we have a better understanding.

Hi, Good luck with food trialing! My 3-year-old son has FPIES (no luck with growing out of it yet- we just failed a retrial). He also ate a ton of avocado when he was younger (it is still a safe food for us). Squash is a common trigger- but since your son already passed sweet potatoes and peas (also common triggers)- he may be fine. Not listed on every site- but bananas are also a common trigger according to our dietician (I found that out after my son had a severe reaction). But, every...

Hi, My little guy is almost 8 months old, and I don’t think he’s ever NOT had diarrhea. Very loose stools, often 7-8 times a day. Safe foods so far appear to be: apples pears bananas hummus peanut butter These foods below seem okay, but he hasn’t had them much yet: carrots peas green beans Definite No’s so far: dairy infant cereals (all types mixed with breastmilk) turkey/chicken We don’t have a diagnosis yet.

Sometimes amount matters . . . , because you had popcorn many days in a row, he could have developed a sensitivity to it. I remember drinking lime juice punch 4 days in a row, and my son had diarrhea. He didn't have a reaction before when I only occasionally had a small amount here and there. When my son finally got to solid food, we had to keep a rotation going and be very careful. If he ate too much of any one food or went too long without having it, he often would develop a reaction to...
