Lamb = SAFE!!!

I'm ready to do a happy dance!! Iyla has her second safe food!! So exciting! We are on day 8 of lamb today and she hasn't had any reaction to it what so ever! We usually do 10 day trials but because there are no issues i increased the amount she was eating sooner then i normally would and she is having full servings. She is loving it! I gave her a diced piece just cooked in the oven yesterday instead of pureed and she thought that was great to chew on.

Tomorrow i have decided to start a wheat trial. Her dietician wants us to trial quinoa but after doing the muscle testing for wheat and it being fine i think we'll try that first. If it doesn't work we'll trial quinoa instead.

A new trial finally!!!

It's been a long wait to finally be able to start a new food trial with Iyla. She has been reaction free for 6 days now and is back to her happy gorgeous amazing little self. We waited a little longer still as Abbey had a stomach bug over the weekend and we wanted to make sure Iyla wasn't going to get it and then confuse the trial. But it seems that no one else in the family is going to get it thankfully. Lets hope it's not one of those ones that takes a long time to pass from person to person.
But anyway i fed Iyla a little bit of pureed boiled grass-fed lamb mixed with her broccoli this morning. I don't think she even realised it was any different. It's been 2hrs now and so far all is good (except refusing her morning bottle) so we will see how it pans out. Will be so nice if we can add another food to her diet!

Reaction after reaction...

Over the past 2 weeks little miss Iyla has been getting into everything and finding all sorts of things to eat. Including grass, toilet freshener, more spiders, dinner dropped on the floor, her cousins juice and more. It has resulted in a reaction every few days. Usually not bad but enough to cause serious tummy pains, horrible reflux, sleepless nights and diarrhoea. The diarrhoea after her toilet freshener was the nicest smelling poop i've ever experienced :).
Because of all these reactions we are having to put a hold on her lamb trial. Hopefully we can manage to keep her reaction free for a few days so we can actually start. Thankfully broccoli is still safe and she is still loving it!
