Could it be possible that she got it from her uncle??
I work in child care & have a new infant (born in February, started attending a week ago). Mom is fairly young. I had mom's younger brother as a preK kid a few years ago & she was graduating high school when he was going into Kindergarten. When I had the boy in my preK class I was told by his mother that he had asthma like symptoms that were triggered by eating or drinking dairy products.
Now I have this little girl, the boy's neice, in my infant class. She came to me with a cold, or so I thought. Over the course of the week it's gotten worse. Clear snot coming from her nose, thick salivia/spit up/drool. She also is VERY gassy & her belly is very hard as if she is consitpated. She also screams alot unless she is lying on her belly. Her mom said she has always been like that. And today she sounded weezy.
But now that I think about it, this sounds like something that could possibly be triggered by her formula. She's on Similac. Which is a MILK product. I am wondering if mom were to switch to soy if that will help her? One of the other teachers spoke to her the other night when she picked up (the other teacher dealt with something similar with her own DD) & the mom looked relived that there was something that could be done to help her baby.
I'm just wondering if it's possible that the baby has the same issue with dairy that her uncle has?? And maybe mom just doesn't realize it yet? I am definitely going to say something to her tomorrow when she drops the baby off. I just wanted to see what others thought.
