Allergy to shellfish?

I strictly breastfeed and I've noticed that the couple of times I've eaten shrimp my 3 month old daughter has been up all night fussing and seems really uncomfortable. Is there a possibility that she can have an allergy like that this early? She doesn't ever get like that except those 2 times I've eaten shrimp

    I would google the science on allergies. My understanding is that foods stay in your milk for two weeks, so it would be more than a fussy night or two. She probably just had gas, but your being a wonderful, concerned new mom trying to watch for everything and maybe observing and connecting things too much.

    As someone who is allergic to shellfish...... you would know.... you would take her to the ER for her profuse vomiting and diarrhea.
