(He had milk curds in his nappies.) And you should be able to pay out the wazoo for some non-dairy formula. I'm not sure I'd bother for ONE night, though. She did okay (as in she was growing & thriving) before you quit dairy.
When you say not bother for one night, do you mean just give normal formula for that one night? But that might not be good for whoever is looking after her, since doesn't she scream a lot if B&M has dairy? I think actually having a bottle of dairy would be worse. Sorry if that's not what you meant, ches.
I'm in agreement with allergy testing maybe not coming up with anything if it's an intolerance rather than an allergy. Someone could probably prescribe non-dairy formula without a test though. If a GP will refer you though I would probably think about getting it done. A has an actual dairy allergy but has never been tested because in my area they said they don't test babies as they might grow out of it, whatever that means
. I really wish he had been tested because then I could get him tested again now to see if it's improving at all, just to give me some hope that he may grow out of it at some point in the future.
