Noticed a change for the better in their sleeping patterns? We have debated for my son's 16m life if he has an allergy or sensitivity to milk. He is allergic to many other foods, so much that when he even touches some of them he immediately breaks out in hives of varying degrees. Well, the milk issue is he isn't sleeping well at night, which is when he is drinking the majority of his milk. At nap he doesn't sleep more than an hour and a half. And night time he is so dead on with his patterns....down at 7:30, then awake between 10:30-11:30, where I change him and give him 3 oz of milk and put him back down. Then again around 3:30 he is up. Then again around 5-6, but he is then up for the day. Ocassionally he lays back down another hour.
I am exhausted, frustrated. The pediatrcian suggested to at least try soy or lactaid. And see if that helps with his ezcema, so it got me thinking and wondering about this too. Could the milk be giving him a stomach ache? Trying to let him CIO is a nightmare, and doesn't work. I have even not given him milk and changed him and rocked him and laid him down, but he is up again and again then too.
