My dtr had a horrible rash on her face and was very fussy and gassy (!). At the drs. he said she had atopic dermititis from a milk allergy. He said to start on soy. She's been on it for 5 days now. From all Ive read, soy allergy is common in babies with milk allergy. Yesterday she seemd more fussy than usual, and today I noticed her face was a little worse (it cleared well after we stopped milk) He gave me a can of Alimentum if soy doesn't work...question is, how long does an intolerance take to show up? Oh, BTW she only gets formula at night I pump during the day and she gets exclusively BM during day. Please....no "only use your milk, blah blah blah" Sometimes those answers are harsH!Answer Question
"only use your milk, blah blah blah"

My daughter had protein intolerance for the first two and a half years of her life. I breast fed but as she grew bigger I supplemented with a non soy based formula that was very gritty. She hated it. Her intolerance would show up immediately as profuse vomiting and bloody diarrhea. Your child sounds more like she has allergies rather than an intolerance. Allergies will cause skin disturbances and colic. Personally with what I know from my own case, I would nurse her during the night, too. She will only be this little once.
