Help, I am back to work, and my 2 1/2 month old daughter has a cow's milk allergy, soy milk allergy, and I'm producing less than she's eating at daycare! We've tried cutting out dairy in my diet (and she's VERY sensitive to anything with milk or whey in it including breads and margarine). She hasn't gained enough weight for her doctor's liking, so we tried soy formula. That wasn't staying down and causing her extreme belly pain and gas, so the doctor gave us samples of hypoallergenic formulas (Nutrimagin and Alimentum). Those don't work either since they still have cow's milk in them. I took her back to the dr yesterday because she's still having problems with spitting up whatever we give her, and in severe pain and gas. Now she has been diagnosed with GERD and on Prevacid, Zantac, Simethecone, and Tylenol for the pain. She's eating 4 bottles at daycare, and I"m lucky if I'm producing 3 for the next day. Any suggestions to get her enough to eat and off the meds??? Plus we're thickening her bottles at daycare, propping her to sleep, and keeping her up after feedings!!!
