Possible thought: On the positive side, these symptoms are common early in life, and tend to resolve with time. A possible approach might be to get allergy testing for the baby, work with a nutrition expert to prevent nutritional deficiencies in the baby, consider food patch testing (preliminary data, suggests might be helpful in predicting failed food challenge in FPIES), evaluate for FPIES by allergy specialist.

Lactose intolerant?: Keep a diet diary and see what your response is to milk and milk products. If that seems to be the problem you can take lactaid and see if that helps.
