I am a HealingWell member for Crohns.  My 17 month old son has a known dairy allergy and after 4 months on soy milk he has started the following: 

 

I wrote this topic in my cafe mom group but think you guys could help much more.

(1/25/11) So last Friday i get a call from daycare that Mitchell threw up his breakfast. . . while asking for more.   they put him down for a nap and i came and got him shortly after that.    for the rest of Friday a pattern developed. . . any meal he ate AFTER drinking (soy) milk he would throw up during the meal.  But he would beg for food right after and kept every other meal down.

His daycare provider and i started wondering if he'd developed an intollerance to soy milk (like he did to cow's milk after a week) but the doctor (who I'd spoken with Sat morning) doesnt think that is likely.  I thought he might be right because after switching to all water (which i was instructed to do for the remainder of the weekend) he started throwing up all Saturday evening.  But not a drop Sunday or Monday.  

We put him back on Milk Monday morning.  He was fine all day; although he's only drinking about half of what he usually does.  I personally think that is his subconscious saying "every time you drink, you throw up".

Well when Dad went and got him from the crib this morning he was COVERED in vomit.  He wanted food - i gave him dry cheerios and a cup of milk.  He then went to daycare and had real breakfast (probably with milk).   He then vomited during lunch.

I called the Dr who still insists its probably something other than soy milk intollerance.  if its not a bug/virus then its most likely mucous sitting in his stomach disagreeing with some foods/milk.

He has ABSOLUTELY NO other symptoms.  No crankiness, no tiredness, no belly aches (he is completely taken by surprise when he vomits - usually talking or eating - and then asks for more food when he's done).

BTW, he had the most foul smelling poop Sunday afternoon that i have ever had to smell (and i have crohn's disease!); it was watery too.  At the time i thought it was the bug/virus leaving his system.

(1/26/11) UPDATE:  His solid poop this morning was white, like he drank barium.

I'd take him to a GI for testing. Meanwhile don't give him any milk, soy or cow. Try Rice milk instead.

thanks.  i'll make an appt.
 
i was going to get rice milk, but after looking at the label it seemed pointless. . . no protein and he can get the calcium from many other sources.

I agree about making the GI appt. I'm so sorry to hear your little guy is having problems. When you take him in, please come back and update us okay? Your story may be able to help other mother's that are having the same trouble with their little ones.
