  • Did the dr do blood work? What's her blood cell count like?

    Also, don't rule out food allergies. Dairy and soy allergies are both quite commong, so babies can be allergic to their formula.

  • What I'm thinking with the blood cells is start looking for an auto immune disease or cancer. Also, they should test for diabetes. If your baby has never developed a rash or doesn't spit up a lot, then I wouldn't suspect a food allergy.
