Moving On....

My life has been crazy hectic lately. I've neglected the internet, and I actually didn't miss it too much, but I do feel strongly about this blog and keeping it updated to help other Moms out there.

Kyle is doing GREAT! We successfully passed milk the second time. He now has all organic, whole milk in his bottles. This makes me happy, and will hopefully ease the financial strain a little from all that formula! He likes cheese (sort of) and does not like yogurt. My daughter used to DEVOUR the YoBaby stuff, but he won't touch it. Still trying.....

Now, we feel a lot more comfortable with things. We've been re-introducing things he had in the past that we thought were problem foods (not a full blown FPIES reaction, but other weird things going on) and he's been doing fine with those too. Like green beans, for example.

This week we are trialing Soy Protein. I will be glad if he passes this one. We are going to do it the same way we did milk, just a little everyday for a week. We are going to use soy milk to trial. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm starting to feel like we should just go full steam ahead with everything but rice and oats, but I also don't want to jinx things. It's a constant argument in our house about when/how long, etc. to introduce things. I'm always erring on the side of caution, and my husband always wants to just go for it!

I'll be back in a week and let you know how it goes!

Milk trial #2

We have started milk again this week after our two week break, per the allergist's suggestion.

So far, no problems. I am going a lot slower. 4 oz. of milk per day for a week before we move on to cheese, yogurt, etc. But, he's doing great!

I got a stomach bug about 5 days after K was vomiting, so I'm pretty sure that it was NOT a delayed FPIES reaction, and simply bad timing. Really bad timing.

So, hopefully I will be reporting no reactions in another few days and I can give this baby some yogurt and cheese again.
