Caroline spent the first 4 months of her life miserable. We tried breatfeeding, made her throw up and she cried all the time wouldn't sleep. I became so exhausted and frustrated (my husband travels 4 days a week) that I started formula. We went through 6 formulas before I insisted we see a specialist. The gastro doctor put her on Nutramigen AA. We were told after 2 months to wean her backwards to regular formula again and we could start solids if she would tolerate regular Nutramigen, not the AA. After a week of this she was back to experiencing the some of the allergy symptoms. We have now reverted back to AA. It's going to be another 2 months before we can start to wean her again and then start solids. Any one else experiencing this? or what kind of outcome I might be looking at? I am petrified she is going to be a year old and still allergic to everything. She has a little boy in her daycare class that won't (not can't) eat solids and he has all kinds of developmental delays (there is more to the story there though).
