My son is 9 weeks and having some difficulties with sensitivities to my breastmilk. I have tried taking things out of my diet and adding things but he continued to break out all over his face, head, neck, and chest. We wondered if it was from giving him expressed breastmilk in bottles but it happened when he breastfed as well. We tried washing the clothes in different detergent. Nothing helped. We gave him a full 24 hours of pure formula to see if there was a difference: he hardly broke out at all!!! We went back to breastmilk and he still breaks out but not as much. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, we wanted to try making the formula with breastmilk instead of water to see if there was any reaction to that. However, we have been told by several people/pediatricians that this would be dangerous (no examples of why) and several others & pediatricians that there should be no problems. Any comments regarding this?
