  • Congratulations on giving your baby the best even though it is a bit of a pain right now! Every baby is different and your baby could grow out of the sensitivities in a few months or could be truly allergic to things for life. I know it can be difficult to cut things out of your diet but it won't last forever and you will never regret it. And your baby appreicates it too!

  • I don't know how old your son is but it could be acid reflux, both of my girls had it. That is if he is spitting up a lot and arches his back and just screames. if you are positive that it is a certain thing or things that you eat that upset him,then just stay away from them for a while and try to gradually add them back to your diet.

  • All three of mine had acid reflux, the youngest being the worst!!! She had Rxs, xrays, procedures, weight loss and all. Do u use gas drops? Sometimes those help. There are also liquid OTC tummy calming stuff like chamomile and lavender creations by a few compaines like healthy remedies (i think). Hope that helps!
