Hi I have two daughters and I’ve been dealing with food intolerance issues with both of them and we were just told our younger one may have fpies yesterday. I’m hoping to get some advice.
My older daughter she is five and is still dealing with a MSPI . I nursed her for 1.5 years and I went off dairy and soy after she started making bloody diapers at 4 months. She didn’t seem to tolerate milk until she 2+ so we slowly added milk and soy back into her diet. I thought she was doing alright but now I’m not sure how much milk and soy is safe to give her. She usually doesn’t have symptoms unless she has dairy multiple times in one day. She gets severe cramps and diarrhea sometimes and it seems to line up with when she has too much dairy. She has lost a lot of weight lately but is still in a healthy range. I’m wondering whether it would be better to avoid dairy completely.
My two year old daughter has been a lot more severe. We notice the same issues with Milk tolerance immediately when she was born so I removed it from my diet while nursing. She has never had a solid diaper. She has a MSPI but also seems to react with other foods like corn and almonds. Her allergy testing recently came back negative. I also nursed her for a year and a half and since I weaned she has had 4 “stomach viruses” that have put her in the hospital with severe diarrhea, vomitig and dehydration. Two of the supposed stomach viruses seemed to line up with when a family member fed her milk and soy rice and I’m not sure what else. I am having a hard time figuring out what her food intolerances are because she has never actually had a normal solid poop for me to compare it to. I have received varrying advice on which foods to avoid. Is there a diet plan or elimination diet that your doctors recommended for figure out which foods were the culprits or helping to heal their intestinal tract? I think most fpies is diagnosed earlier but this became apparent only after I quit nursing.
Im hoping to get a meal plan figured out soon because I am pregnant and will be delivering soon. I having been hoping to give family members a plan to follow while I am in the hospital.
