allergies in 3 wk old, need some opinions Added ENT vent!!
So, my little guy is starting to present just like his big brother did.
(Back story about DS2) At 3 months I finally got him allergy tested and he tested positive to wheat, soy, egg and brown rice (but not white rice)
DS3 is allergic to *something* I don't know if I should eliminate everything, (seeing that I have a history to base things off of) or if I should try by eliminating like wheat, and if he doesn't clear up in two weeks or so, then cut out soy, or dairy, etc.
We are going to an ENT today, to see about getting a tongue and lip clip, poor kid def has a lip tie like his siblings did, and it seems he has a posterior tongue tie as well. But the ENT also does allergy testing, so I will be asking him as well.
UGH, the ENT told me that lip ties don't effect anything but teeth, there is no reason to cut a lip tie. He also said that DS does not have a tongue tie, that his gasping for air while nursing, vomitting, gas, inability to keep a pacifier in his mouth etc, is all likely due to some gastro issue.
He also told me that they don't test for allergies until 3 or 4, because they don't really have allergies before that......
I am SO glad that I already have a second opinion appt set up.
