    Default Hair loss and milk sensitivity

    So is anyone else loosing a ton of hair? I know I've heard of this but OMG it is falling out in chunks. I wake up in the morning and my pillow is covered.

    Also is anyone else's LO allergic to the protein in cows milk? Jay started all of a sudden getting diarrhea and they tested and found out he was allergic. I'm hoping he grows out of it. I have to have him on Allimentum formula, luckily Enfamil makes it and Walmart has a generic cause the Similac that my doc wanted him on was like $30 for a 1 lb container. He is doing well on the generic.

    Hair loss starts around 3 months, usually, and yeah, it sucks. I still ahve whispies from when Brayden was born, but oh well, totally worth it, IMO!

    milk protein allergy is no fun at all, Im glad you found a generic Alimentum...that stuff is NOT cheap.

    I feel like I'm shedding all the time. When I have my 7 minute shower enough hair comes out that it blocks the drain. I did this with DD1 too.

    I hope you can get the milk allergy sorted out!

    I haven't started yet, but I'm sure it's coming soon. I think it was 3-4 months it started with my other kids. Ack! Not looking forward to it, my hair got really nice this pregnancy
    Hope the new formula continues to do well with him!

    If your hair loss is excessive… have your doctor check your thyroid levels. Post-Partum Hypothyroidism is not at all uncommon and can create a false post-partum depression.

    I am psitive that Evie is VERY sensitive to dairy. She wasn't diagnosed, I just cut it out of my diet completely. When I have ANY dairy (we are talking traces of it in taco seasoning or chicken bullion cubes) she is in pain and won't poop the next day or two. So not worth consuming it.

    Jayden started having diarhea at about 6 weeks. it didnt stop no matter what I did for close to 2 weeks. so when I went to the doc, Jayden gave him a nice slimy poop. He swabbed it and looked at it and did a test. There was blood in the stool, not to the human eye, but it was from the irritation of the lining of the stomach and intestines. It started out the same as you are saying lots of gas. Then the diarrhea just hit. he was back to normal poops after 2 days of being on the new formula and has been fine ever since. SO if he has diarrhea I would have it checked out right away. If not just keep an eye on it. The docs had me try soy milk first before they did the test for the allergy so you may want to try that.
