I wanted to know if anyone else has a baby that had a dairy sensitivity and if they grew out of it? My son Dillon was in the NICU and they fed him formula until my milk came in. After 2 months of nursing he was still throwing up a lot every feeding and very fussy after eating. The doctor said to cut out my dairy. Well in 3 days I noticed a differfence no more throw up and fussyiness. He is going on 11 months. I just tried some dip the other day and a sampling of cheese while at a demonstration party and the next two days he was throwing up again. I guess he still can't have dairy or I should say I can't for now. I was doing some research on what causes this and one of the things I read is that formula introduced in the hospital could have caused this as his digestive system was too imature and was no making certain enzymes that his body needed to break down the protiens in dairy and this could have led to his problems. Well I just wanted to know if anyone else has to watch what they eat like I do and if their babies grew out of it.
