me again everyone,
ive had a huge week with my daughter in the last week and some big revelations too.
on thursday last week, i had to take my daughter to the emergency department cos she was really sick and i couldnt get into a gp. anyway it turned out she had a bad ear infection, and was admitted to hospital until her temp came down, and she started having wet nappies again.
after i got her home, i came on this site and was reading a post called ear infections. there was one common factor between ear infections and dairy allergies with every person that had put a post on it. their children were unwell without being able to put a proper finger on what was going on (like me) or get anyone to listen to their concerns without being fobbed off.
i started to think back to when my daughter was new born and i know that it was said earlier that she tolerated a cows base formula, so was unlikely to have an allergy- but now that i think about it, she vomited after every single bottle, large amounts of formula, and i was told it was reflux! so i thought nothing of it.
she has had a runny nose since she was a week old too.
a child health nurse told me today (a different one to before) that i should take my cues from my daughter and if shes refusing cows milk, shes trying to tell me something.
so im going to see if she will take soy, and if not i will try goats milk.
thanks guys for helping, i appreciate it
