BAD reaction!!

We started Iyla's next 3 foods trial on Friday and we thought it was going really well. We were trialling, almonds, spinach and cauliflower. The first two days things were great. No issues what so ever. Then yesterday she refused to eat the piece of almond slice i had made her in the morning. I didn't push it and then decided while i was making her a meatball for dinner that i would add a little bit of almond meal just to make sure she got some that day. She ate her meatball fine, she loved it. All was well until 8pm...exactly 2hrs after dinner. Then she started vomiting, which went on for about 2 hours. She got to puking bile and then finally went to sleep. She slept till 12.30am but woke up throwing up bile again twice. At 4.30am she woke up again and was thirsty. I let her have a little sip and after keeping that in for 20 min i let her just sip more water slowly over the next two hours. She was back in bed at 6.45am and then basically slept all day. She was only awake between 9.30 and 11.30. I had to wake her to pick up Connor from school but thankfully she was lots happier then. She still isn't really eating but she is drinking lots which is most important right now.

We'll wait a week before starting the spinach and cauliflower trials again but we wont bother giving almonds another go.

I did something crazy...

Last week Monday i did something crazy...I started 3 new food trials with Iyla at the same time! I admit i was scared, but i also just want to add to her diet so badly. I figured if things went badly it wasn't too hard to cut back on two of the foods and then trial one at a time. We were extremely lucky..blessed really...that she has past all 3 of those foods!!! It's so exciting!! So now we have added sweet potato, mushrooms and pear into her diet. With pear being a previous bad food it was very exciting that she passed that one too! I wanted to try mushrooms so that i could get more flavour into her dinners. I am a little shocked still that she LOVES them and although she won't eat them raw, she will eat them after they have been fried and has happily eaten them alongside her breakfast for the past week. Sweet potato was a bit of an issue at the start as she really didn't like it. But after hiding it in her vitabrits every morning she started to get used to the taste and now i have added it to her dinner without any gagging or spitting it out. 

For this week we will just keep going with the 3 new foods and hope for no build up reactions but next week we are planning to start another 3 food trial. Hopefully we have the same results!!
