I hate being so sick. I can barely take care of myself, let alone be a decent mom. Ughhhhh
We’ve been given a referral for an allergist for William. Tonight, I gave him hummus, and wherever it touched his skin, he broke out in a rash. The same thing happened with bananas, and has started happening intermittently with avocado. Sometimes even with fruits. Because of the pine nuts in that hummus, our Ped suspects a nut allergy and gave me the referral. I called right after I fed William, because I wanted to get an accurate Benedryl dosage as well.
All that misery I went through trying to keep breastfeeding/pumping/whatever? It was to try to avoid this. My goal was to protect him long enough to prevent food allergies. I obviously failed.
So, no dairy, nuts, bananas, maybe avocado, and sometimes different fruits. The list of food he can eat that’s actually nutritious is starting to narrow. I’m really torn up about this. He’s had to deal with so much in his life, and now we’ll be dragging him to Indy for allergy testing. He’s been through enough.
On the upside regarding food, he started using a spoon and feeding himself today. Just out of the blue, would not let me feed him and would only do it himself. He held his bottle, too. (Cup training is extremely slow) So that’s some amazing progress.
