When to See A Pediatrician If Your Are Formula Feeding
If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, you should immediately schedule your child to be seen by the pediatrician. Your pediatrician can help you determine if your child is in fact allergic to milk proteins and can help you decide what type of formula to try on your baby. Never attempt to switch your baby’s formula on your own, there are way to many choices on the market and you want to make sure that your are giving your baby the best possible nutrition.
When To See A Lactation Consultant or Pediatrician If Your Are Breastfeeding
If your child is breastfed, you should begin eliminating dairy from your diet. According to Kelly Mom, it will take a 10 days to 3 weeks for the milk proteins to be eliminated from your system. It is best to wait the full 2 to 3 weeks before evaluating your baby’s response to removing dairy from your diet. If your baby is still having problems, consult a lactation consultant or your child’s pediatrician to determine the next course of action for your baby.
A Message From Other Parents Who Had Babies Who Had Allergic Reactions to Formula
When I was reading other parents comments on Baby Center, a comment from several mother’s as first time parents they didn’t know that their child was having issues with their child’s formula. If you feel that there is something wrong with your child, please consult your baby’s pediatrician for help figuring out what is wrong with your baby. Most babies don’t cry all day or spit up large amounts milk whether it be formula or breast milk. If you don’t get the results you are looking for, it never hurts to see another doctor or a specialist if you feel that your child’s pediatrician didn’t resolve your child’s symptoms. Be persistent and don’t give up if you feel that your child might have milk allergies.
