Soy bean oil?
I've been on a diary/ soy free diet for about 2 weeks. From what I read soy bean oil in foods is usually ok. I saw my GI doctor for first time and he said soy bean oil should be fine to use unless he seems to have a reaction to it. But just wanted to see if others who had this in their diet if their baby did well with. I'm having a hard time finding food to eat, and I'm losing weight. My baby is 5 months and this is my first. I just really wanted to make breastfeeding work. I just hope this helps him. This has been so hard! When I came to my doctor months ago with this problem he blamed it on colic and said my diet had nothing to do with it. It's so tempting to go to a special formula. But I'm scared on how he will do with that. And it is so expensive, my insurance won't cover.
Ours wasn't soybeans in particular so I can't really say much about that. What I was told was to do the BRAT diet and slowly add in things every other day. It sucked, bigtime. But that's how we made it work.
What all do you have to avoid? Is it just soy?
My son had the dairy allergy and was highly reactive to it. I'm talking runny bowels, projectile vomiting, constant screaming...
Yeah I got the "colic" talk too. I was like no way, this is not just colic. Maybe partly, but there's more to this. I went for a second opinion and this is what I was told. Dairy can stay in your system for a while even after you eliminate it, something about the proteins in it. I am NOT NOT NOT telling you to do this, talk to your doctor first. But I was told to give him Alimentum and pump and dump for two weeks. Then do the BRAT diet while integrating things back into my diet.
PLEASE don't do this on your own though. Ask your doctor first if this is what you should be doing. I say that because this was ten years ago and the recommendations may have changed.
Also, here's a great link to some info about hidden dairy in foods.
You can do it! Please ask if you have anymore questions, I won't be on this weekend at all, but I'll be back Tuesday.
