My baby was 6 weeks old and all the doctors kept telling me was that my baby had severe reflux and things would settle down. He wasn't sleeping, was continuously screaming and I have never felt so exhausted in my life. Someone suggested I go and see a dietitian as my baby maybe allergic to his milk. I saw Sara who explained it was likely my baby had an intolerance or allergy to cows milk protein, within an hour she had written to my GP and a specialist formula was prescribed, it was like having a different baby, he was happy, settled and finally not screaming! When the time came to wean by baby Sara talked me through the process of weaning without milk in the diet but making sure he had everything he needed. She gave me food lists, recipe ideas which made everything so much easier.
