My pediatrician has told me that my son has milk and soy allergies. He is a breastfed baby. At about 2 months he had horrible reflux and I noticed blood in his stools. The dr said it was most likely milk protien allergies so I cut out dairy from my diet. I started eating soy products and my son did great! At 7 months he started to wien himself from nursing. I had a very difficult time pumping enough milk (in 20 mins I managed to only get 1 oz) His dr had said to use a soy formula. He did horrible on the soy formula, he was fussy, very squirmy, and I noticed blood in his stool. I immediately stopped the formula. I have him on a hypoallergenic formula and I don't know how I feel about it. I have not seen any blood in his stools but he is acting a bit more fussy. I am wondering if he is even allergic to soy. There are soooo many things in formula. I'm not sure I am please with my dr's advice.
I am just wondering if any other mom's have gone through this and what other options do we have?
