There is nothing more heart-wrenching and at times frustrating than an infant who screams daily and inconsolably for prolonged periods. We tend to wonder what is wrong with the baby, but often it is something in Mom’s diet that enters the breast milk and is problematic for the infant’s digestive system.
Common offenders are cow’s milk, wheat and sometimes even members of the cole crop family, the brassicas – broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower. Mothers can try eliminating milk and /or wheat from their diet to start but a fast and simple way to determine the offending agent is a quick (minutes) QT diet determination to designate the food.
Know that it may change for each infant. With my first child, I had to eliminate dairy while breastfeeding, with my second, both wheat and dairy. But I had happy babies so it was well worth it for a short period of time.
If you chose to give your little one formula, it is even more important to test to make sure the formula is well tolerated. Soy is the base of many formulas and it is not well tolerated by many individuals. By testing your infant formula, you can prevent a lifetime of problems. It takes minutes over the phone using Quantum Techniques to determine the best formula.
There is nothing more delightful than giving your little darling a life of joy instead of daily gastro-intestinal distress.
