I'm sorry that your child isn't doing well. My first thought is that there may be hidden sources of gluten or other problematic ingredients. In case you haven't seen it, here is a list of safe and unsafe foods: http://www.celiac.com/st_main.html?p_catid...-07105364219.e9

Has there been any improvement? The response time for such young children is typically quite fast from what others have related on this site. If you can give more details on the current diet and reactions, I'm sure you will get many helpful responses.

With 3-5 dirty nappies aday, I would think that there is either an exposure being missed, or perhaps an allergy not yet diagnosed. What type of "milk" is your child on? Some rice milks do contain small amounts of gluten in them. I know that my daughter reacted to the Rice Dreams brand of rice milk as they use barley enzymes in its processing. She was fine once we changed to a gluten-free brand. Well actually, almost fine as we had all the allergies you have mentioned as well as an intolerance to soy which never showed up on her allergy tests.

If soy is part of your child's diet, I would highly recommend removing it for 3 or 4 days to see if that makes any difference. Many children have problems digesting it. Other allergy culprits can be sugar, fructose, yeast, food colorings, artificial sweeteners, corn.....the list is long, I know. But sometimes the elimination diet is the only true way to determine intolerances. With the list you've just given, I would really be surprised if your child weren't allergic to soy as well. I can't tell you how many times I have seen the same symptoms persist in children with food allergies. It seems like once we go down that road, more allergies keep popping up!

I'm sorry your baby is still not well. Some people take about 4 to 6 months to start feeling better. I didn't start feeling better until about 6 months into the diet and I comtinued to have symptoms up until about one year into the diet.
