Hi my 3 mo has been ebf and I’ve been off soy and dairy for at least two months. In the last month he has had two episodes of blood in his stool but negative FOBT cards. My pediatrician hasn’t been particularly helpful, and suggested it was a milk protein allergy (see above re soy and dairy) and wants me to start hypoallergenic formula if it happens again. In hopes to stave that off I started a low allergen diet to try to pinpoint what was causing it. For two days he had the first normal poops of his life but then started getting fussy and crying like he’s in pain two hours after feedings again with diarrhea and I’ve pinpointed rice and sweet potato. Since he weighs in at 16+ lbs no one believes me that it could be FPIES and not a regular allergen. Is it possible for the symptoms to be milder since he is getting the protein through breastmilk? Thanks so much for any help, I’m starting to feel like a crazy person trying to get this figured out!!!
