I had a low placenta but unluckily for me it moved even further round so I ended up with lots of admissions due to bleeds, a c-section and a blood transfusion! Not trying to put you off but i think you do need to know the other end of the scale. All of the doctors said that it is quite rare and that for most people it does move round, unfortunately mine had other ideas, but I have a very healthy, happy 2 1/2 yr old who is a super girl!
My daughter Tara has had milk intolerance since 9 weeks. At first she was on Soya milk but since 18 months she has been on lactose free milk which you can get from the chilled cabinet in anywhere like Tesco or Asda's - Tara loves it - i'm not worried about the soya and she is still getting the milk - just with the lactose removed.
My daughter Tara has a milk intolerance, and even now at 13 months she still can't tolerate anything with dairy. She sounds very similar to your little one - i would keep persisting as my HV and doctor said the same thing to me as Tara was still putting on weight despite having very bad wind, and very loose stools - she was in fact eating more because it was going through her so fast - hence the weight gain!
I think your instincts are telling you that something is still not right even though you have moved milks and he is still being sick - trust those because they are normally right!
My GP still thinks it is a temporary intolerance and keeps trying to get me to try her with dairy again - after trying once at 10 months and taking 3 weeks to settle down - he can sod off !!! I have asked for a referral to see a paed because she has never been allergy tested and other foods also seem to make her stools very loose.
Tara has been on Infasoy since 9 weeks now and i think her immune system is very low as she always seems to have a cold - i cook all her food fresh and try to include lots of fresh fruit and veg. MY GP wouldn't prescribe Neocate as he said it was too expensive, although i have heard conflicting views about using Soya milk for very young babies - bit late for Tara as she has had it since 9 weeks!
Intersting to hear yours and other views as it seems quite a hot topic at the mo
Lovely to hear that Callum is doing so well - they all got us a bit worried when they were little with all their little problems!
Hopefully they will now be getting to the stage where things are settling down and their little immune systems are starting to fight off bugs - this week has been the only whole week that Tara has been well since the summer - long may it continue.
Took Tara swimming again yesterday, she hadn't been since August as she has been so poorly - and she was a little shy at first but at the end was toddling along in the shallow bit with her watering can laughing at everyone with her pal Polly!
I must also get some piccies on of Tara - i have to keep reminding myself to take more as she is growing up so fast.
