My son is almost 10 1/2 months old and when he was almost two weeks old we found out he had a food allergy. Since I was nursing him my doctor had me do the elimination diet to see what he was allergic too. It took a few months to find out that he is allergic to wheat, soy, dairy and corn. I am still nursing him and just not eating those foods. He is gaining weight very slowly and I have lost a lot of weight being on a limited diet. I am making all of his baby food and he eats a lot. Over the past few weeks he cries almost every time he nurses and I am afraid he has another food allergy. He can suck on a pacifier with no complaint. Can anyone think of another reason he would cry every time he nurses? I think I am eating and drinking enough.
