Today’s question: Can 1 round of antibiotics taken by mother damage a breastfed infants gut so severely to cause multiple food allergies and intolerances?
Fact: When A was 12-14 days young I took an antibiotic for mastitis, Dicloxacillin. On day 14, A began her rashes (you can see in a previous post).
New Doctors response to giving our background : The antibiotic is what did ‘this’ to A. (allergies/intolerances/weak immune system)
Findings: Yes, 1 round CAN greatly increase the risk of the infant developing food allergies and intolerances. The gut can be helped when repopulated with good bacteria but never fully healed.
Next Step: I’ll get back to you on that. I’m leaning towards GAPS again.
