If you're nursing you could try an elimination diet. I was nursing a baby with a cow milk allergy and figured it out and was able to cut out my dairy intake. My son had TERRIBLE stomach pain, shrieked in pain 1pm-11pm daily without naps (nothing would stop it) from 2 weeks old to 2 months old (when we figured out what was wrong.) He also started to pass deep red chunks of blood from bleeding intestines. I've heard of other children who had this kind of experience, as well as those who had skin rashes, etc. I would speak with your pedi about it. If they aren't sure go to a pediatric allergist. I wouldn't recommend a true allergy test for a long time though. We went through it with my son and it was HELL for him. I regret it, but they wanted to make sure it wouldn't kill him if exposed by accident since the reaction was so severe to just breastmilk. If you are using formula, try a sensitive or soy one I suppose.
