I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

Breast milk: Many pediatricians and pediatiric clinics assign the diagnosis of "foor allergies" as a cause of "colic" or poor feeding by an infant.

I'm delighted you've decided to breast feed 12mo! ...Read more

See your GYN: Nobody can diagnose a galactocele (vs something else) in a virtual short question format such as this. Make an appointment to follow up with gynecologist. Are they the one that ordered the US 5 years ago? They should have records to compare what they are seeing now with what was then and can order f/u testing if necessary. ...Read more
