I thought that seeing as Iyla just turned 2 it really was time for another update! It's been over 2 months since the last one! Things had been going really well with Iyla. We were almost set to call her allergy free. That was until 3 weeks ago when we trialed corn...one of her last bad foods to trial. It was a build up reaction over 5 days. But we had to stop giving it to her as she was just getting sicker and sicker from it.
She was back to her happy little self a few days later and with her eating again i started giving her nutella on her sandwiches for lunch. She had, had it randomly but never more then a few times a week. We hadn't noticed any issues before but after a week of her eating it every day, her mood, sleep, poo and reflux all started going downhill. It finally clicked that i had to go back to good old cheese on her sandwiches instead.
Only a few days after that gastro hit our family with force. It's been 10 days now since Iyla had it but there hasn't been any improvement in the diarrhoea. The poo just wont stop coming! Her mood is all over the place too. She definitely isn't her normal happy little self. There are tears, screaming and tantrums most of the day. But thankfully if we are out and about she is distracted and mostly happy. I can't wait for things to go back to normal though. I'm not sure if the diarrhoea is still from the gastro or if she is reacting to something that was safe because her stomach is so messed up. We will just have to wait it out a bit longer and then decide what to do if things don't get better. I have no idea where we would start!
Here is Iyla on her birthday with her favourite present. She managed a smile even though she had just been having a complete meltdown about the fact i wanted a photo.
