So this is my first post on here, but IDK what else to do.
My son is a EBF 6 1/2 months old and we have been struggling with rashes and allergy problems since 3 1/2 months old. He had a total of three Bowl movements that had blood in them before I took dairy away from my diet. I have also taken wheat out of my diet because it seems like he goes the bathroom more when I eat it and gets a stuffy nose. I am allergic to eggs, soy and garlic, so I am not eating those.
The doctor has seen him 3 times for this problem. The last time we saw the doctor was for his 6 month well baby visit. The doctor told me that if this continues that we would have to stop BF because my son is probably allergic to BM. That statement has made me extremely sad. I have no idea what to respond to him when he says that. My son and I have a awesome BF bond, and I do not want to stop until he is ready to stop.
My question is has anyone had or heard of allergy testing for infants? And was my doctor wrong about being allergic to BM?... I thought that he could only be allergic to something im eating if he is having a problem with it?? And how should I approach my doctors attitude about BF my son? I dont care if I am only able to eat rice and chicken if that is what my son need... am I just crazy and should listen to my doctor?
