When asked what formula to use? Soy formula. I cried as I dumped my breast milk down the drain. It was a hard pill to swallow. Even DG can have delays and gate issues. Everyone will tell u different But go with your gut
I have heard to not give my child squash but it is his favorite. He has had milk before, like cheese its and it doesn't do anything so don't you think I can not restrict? My child is bored with regular baby foods and I would like to give him ice cream. Isn't that okay?
I live in a shelter and the shelter will only give my child canned pears and peaches. We have honey bagels alot but I know honey is bad for babies so I leave during breakfast and try to find her rice crackers. The canned fruit is giving her a terrible diaper rash. I know that Destin is what the shelter gave us but it is white so it must have milk in it so she can't have it. The shelter isn't helping us at all and I don't know how long I will be here.

My child has been diagnosed with sepsis. The first doctor we saw said the newborn screening test said my child probably had DG. So we went to another specialist that doctor took more bloodwork, we have been waiting 4 months for the results. In the meantime my child has gotten very sick. We are currently in the hospital trying to treat the sepsis. They have ruled out that it is not the bacteria type of EColi that comes from stools. So did the breastmilk cause this? I followed my doctors' suggestion he said I could breastfeed but now I wonder if I made the right decision.
My son is very small for his age. He is on soy but I wonder about Nutramigen Junior. Is that a good choice? I loved using Nutramigen when he was a baby but when he turned 1 the doctor said it was no longer needed and to do Soy. What is best?
He has sever acid reflux and colic. He has been on breastMilk simalac advanced simalac soy gerber soy progestimil prosobee and now nutramigen they can find something that works for the acid reflux and him spitting it all up. The progestimil worked for a while but his acid got so bad he couldn't use it any more and the dr is starting to worry he dropped from the 90th percentile to the 72nd percentile in 3 months

These are true stories and messages from moms I have received since I began this journey researching DG in 2008. Sadly I didn't start foldering the messages til 2012 but please see that many are in the same boat as you-confused and with many questions. The post is not to answer these questions specifically but to post to record the issues and questions for the public.
