Just wondered if anyone else out there has had to deal with protein sensitivities with their little one and have you started solids? My little guy was unofficially diagnosed with cows milk sensitivity and soy protein sensitivity (not allergies) when he was 2 months old. We immediately started on Nutramigen and everything was great. At 3 months I started putting rice cereal in his bottle because he was eating over 40 ounces of the stuff a day! He was eating over the recommended 32 oz at 2 months but Pediatrician just said we should keep letting him eat on demand due to the sensitivity. He is on the verge of turning 4 months and we tried some stage 1 bananas yesterday and he LOVED them and ate the entire 2.5 oz jar. I'm a little concerned about his sensitivity but it seems like more a problem with milk and soy, so I just don't know how it's going to go with different types of solids. Anyone else have any experience they can pass on?
