Topics I've Started

Possible Milk/soy Allergy

27 January 2008 - 02:26 PM

Hey all -

I'm hoping someone on here can give me some more information on all this.
My daughter is two and a half weeks old and up until about two days ago, it was all smooth sailing. I am breastfeeding her and she's been eating fine and gaining weight normally.
Two days ago she started getting extremely fussy, crying until she's hoarse, she vomited up something with bloody mucus and then this morning I found a little blood in her diaper as well. Last nite after an excessively fussy episode, we took her for a car ride which put her to sleep. But then she slept for SIX hours - and would've kept on sleeping if no one had woken her up! This also meant she went almost eight hours between feedings - and she definately didn't nurse like she hadn't eaten in eight hours when she finally did eat.

Anyways, we took her to the pediatrician this morning and she told us that its most likely an allergy to milk and/or soy and that I should eliminate it from my diet for a few weeks and see if it helps.

My biggest question is this - if it is a food allergy, why isn't she screaming after *every* feeding? I have been eating dairy all along, but never an excessive amount (i.e. cheese and butter in foods and an ocassional bowl of ice cream, but no glasses of milk). So far today things have been okay (cross your fingers!!) and she's eaten several times.

Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Courtney

Progresso Soups

13 May 2007 - 03:45 PM

I was just at the grocery store staring longingly at the ease of the canned soup aisle when I decided to pick one up -

Progresso's Chicken Corn Chowder and Progresso's Southwestern Style Chicken both have no gluten ingredients listed. While checking other varieties I realized that they are good about listing the main allergens at the bottom of the ingredient listings, so that gave me confidence.
Also I know that their cream of mushroom is gluten-free and I've used it before with no reactions.

Anyone tried or had any reactions to either of these soups?

Thanks
Courtney

Johnsonville Brats

07 May 2007 - 02:04 PM

I know I've read on several occassions that Johnsonville brats are all gluten-free - except, of course, for the beer brats. We just got a new, fancy, shiny grill :D and I had a brat today for lunch. The kind that has cheddar infused into the deliciousness of the bratwurst :wub: ...ooooooooh, but it did NOT sit well.
I don't know if I feel like I was glutened, but it definately sits in the right time frame and symptoms. First I got unbearable pains/cramps and then the D started.
All has calmed down now, which is excellent and speedy, but I'm just wondering if anyone has had a reaction to these. I even went to the fridge between trips to the bathroom (I totally washed my hands, though!!) and double checked the ingredients. Didn't see anything suspect - thoughts? Anyone else been glutened by Johnsonville?

Thanks
Courtney

Scrubs

Anyone see Scrubs on tonite?

They mentioned gluten in a one-liner and my boyfriend and I couldn't stop laughing until the commercial break...fabulous.

It may have been an insignificant joke, but at least they said gluten!
