  • For the nutrients, make sure you take a good multi-vitamin. Even a pre-natal one.

    For her list of "no-no" foods: anyone can suddenly develop an allergy to something at any point in their life. Even you and me. But I would talk to your pediatrician. Since she is so young, it is possible that something else is going on. Make sure she is fine before you go much longer.

  • they have vitamins for little ones that breastfeed. ask the pedi, he can tell you. i don't remember what they're called, my ds was on them while i breastfed.

    she could be allergic to dairy, or something else going on. either way i say go to the doctor so they can look at her, and see if it's not something else. GL

  • It's possible. I'd let her doctor know right away. Just to be safe.
