My husband and I have been talking about having another child. For a while we had decided not to have any more children. We have one daughter who is 4 and was breastfed until she was 18 mos old. I had a lot of struggles with it and excess lipase was one of them. The other major struggle was my daughter having multiple food-protein intolerances that were only diagnosed through my going on an elimination diet.
So, my question now is for any of the moms who had issues with excess lipase (or know someone who did/does): Did you notice that your child had issues with colic, diarrhea, raw rectum/bottom, spitting up or general GI upset as a baby, and/or did you end up finding out that your child had food intolerances/allergies.
I am starting to have a lot anxiety about this aspect of having another child and begging to wonder if I may have accidentally caused some or all of my daughters digestive issues by feeding her breastmilk with excess lipase. I know that if adults take more digestive enzymes than needed as a dietary supplement that it can cause GI upset and inflammation. But, unfortunately there are VERY FEW medical professionals who know anything about excess lipase in breastmilk--let alone what it's reaction may be in the infants ingesting it. So, I am hoping for some anecdotal evidence from anyone who has anything they can share with me.
