    Hives!

    Advertisements
    My poor little guy broke out in hives today. It scared me pretty bad, just because I have never had to deal with it before. I gave him a baking soda bath to soothe itching, and pretty quick they went away. I had done a few new things recently, I went out for a drink last night, so that was new. While I was out, he had formula for the first time (I bought him similac sensitive because he is a fussy little monster at times) and while staying at my parents house his clothes have been washed in a new detergent.

    So I guess I am no longer drinking. And I rewashed all of his clothes in his detergent. But later in the day, I left him with gramma and grampy while I took Anabelle to the park. He had about two oz of formula, and he has hives again!!

    Is there anything I need to do other than stop the formula?

    Since it was SOY based formula, think it is a soy allergy, or is it just too hard to tell?

    There Are so many chemicals in formula it's hard to tell.
    Talk with your ped before trying anything else. They can do a simple blood draw to test for more allergies.

    Babies have a harder time processing things through their bodies as their systems are immature. He could still be reacting to whatever set him off in the first place.

    One thing I would do is eliminate the formula. It sounds as if you have been breastfeeding up until now. If that is the case you can pump and freeze your milk. Then when he goes to Grandma and Grandpa's he can have breastmilk rather than formula. If the hives keep coming back I would talk to your pediatrician and see if there is something else you should be doing.

    even though his clothes are being washed in his detergent, everyone he touches still has the different detergent on them. So if gma and gpa use tide and you use deft on his clothes, he is still being exposed to the tide, via blankets, and other peoples clothes.
