Usually when it is recommended that a breastfeeding mother eliminate dairy produce from her diet, it is because of a problem that may be caused by the protein it contains, not because of lactose intolerance. Human milk is full of lactose, and nature has made certain that babies and toddlers can digest it. Many babies grow out of their sensitivity, so even if your baby is affected you may be able to add dairy back into your diet as your baby gets older.
Have you noticed some rash-like eruptions on your skin of late? Are you breastfeeding and are worried you could pass on the allergy to your little one? Well, if you can relate to the above situations chances are you may be suffering from hives.
Hives are a common skin condition characterised by well-formed itchy welts and swelling of the skin surface. Hives can occur anywhere on the body but in babies, are usually short-lived. An infection can also cause hives.
Babies can be unsettled for many reasons and it can sometimes take time and effort to work out the cause. However it can be a real concern if your baby is uncomfortable, in pain, distressed or if he is being sick, experiencing diarrhoea or has other symptoms. But when you have ruled out most of the obvious causes and your baby is still, unhappy, colicky or experiencing dry and itchy skin, you may start to wonder whether your breastfed baby could be reacting to something in his diet, environment, or, if he is exclusively breastfed, something in your own diet. Certain medical conditions can have symptoms similar to those of an allergic reaction.

Hello, I hope I am not off topic as I didn't experience hives during my postpartum, but I think that my eczema is also linked to a hormonal imbalance caused by breastfeeding my now 1 year old daughter. I started to develop this eczema on my fingers about 2 monthes after giving birth to my daughter. And I was breastfeeding.
