Re: Help - Dr recommended formula for 2 weeks :(
I would not stop breastfeeding based on the info you've given us. I would continue with your elimination diet and see if it gets better now that you've stopped soy. If eliminating soy doesn't work I'd eliminate wheat next. Another option is to go ahead and do a top 8 elimination, where you stop eating the 8 most common allergens: dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, treenutes, wheat, fish and shellfish.
Have you been careful about reading labels and looking for hidden sources of dairy? It can be kind of tricky to make sure you've really eliminated all dairy. Do a google search for hidden dairy and familiarize yourself with some of the other names for dairy proteins you might find in foods.
Allergy to breastmilk is extremely rare. It is highly unlikely this is your child's problem given the relative mildness of his symptoms. That's just an easy excuse for the doc. I would request a referral to a pediatric allergist and like a pp said, you might want to look into a new pediatrician if this one's first solution is to go straight to formula.
