No more neocate!

I had a phone appointment with Iyla's dietician yesterday and because Iyla can now have dairy she is allowed to start drinking cows milk instead of her neocate formula. I was a little worried that the food she can eat wont give enough nutrients without it. But she is barely drinking her formula now anyway so we are hoping she'll drink more cows milk and that she we can add foods to her diet quicker now that it seems she is tolerating things better then what she used to. 

We also have an appointment at PMH on the 27th for a check up and probably skin prick testing just to rule out any other possible allergies. 

We were supposed to start a chicken trial yesterday but the poor little miss is sick with high fevers and was vomiting last night. Hopefully this doesn't mess up her gut and cause things to go backward again.

DAIRY is SAFE!!!! Woohoo!!

There is huge excitement in this house at the moment! Iyla is no longer allergic to dairy!!! A few months back I decided I wanted to give NAET treatment a go again. I know how to do it myself so I held a bottle of milk against Iyla and did the weird massage that somehow tells the brain that the food isn’t bad. 24 hours later we muscle tested milk and it was still bad so I did the massage again. I had to do this for 3 days and then finally the test was good. Since that time Iyla has had so many reactions to other things that we haven’t had a chance to really trial dairy. But I was giving her small bites of yogurt every now and again without that causing any issues. This week she has finally been doing really well reaction wise so I have increased her dairy amount. She has been having a few spoons of yogurt daily and I’ve made her pancakes with half milk half water instead of her formula. There have been no problems at all!! I’m so excited! Dairy is HUGE!!! And now that NAET has worked for one food I’ll definitely be trying it with others in the future.
