Peyton is 3 months old today. I can’t believe it! I do feel like it has been forever since her last update though! So much is going on. She has her first little cold 😦 She is doing just fine though! Thanks mama milk! 🙂 Last update I talked about how her being on Zantac has helped her reflux. She is no longer on that medication and she is doing better than ever! We no longer have to keep her upright for AN HOUR lol Thank goodness.
We had her follow up hip ultrasound shortly after the last update. Her hips have evened out and her “alpha angles” are in the normal range! Her doctor was right in believing that they will resolve on their own… just like he was right about her not having pyloric stenosis 🙂 This is why we love him!
The newest development has been a potential milk protein allergy. TMI warning … in case you don’t want to hear about poop, you can stop reading lol She has had some consistent mucousy type poops with littttle streaks of red blood in them every so often. She hasn’t been crying and she rarely fusses at all, so it is odd. I have cut out milk, soy, wheat, and most recently nuts out of my diet. We have yet to see improvement which is a little frustrating. I’ve cut out basically all of my favorite foods and we have nothing to show for it yet. She is under the care of her pediatrician and a pediatric gastro. They both believe breastfeeding is still the best thing for her right now as long as she does not worsen in any way. I believe this wholeheartedly. She is continuing to thrive, gain plenty of weight and she shows no sign of pain. So at this point, it is going to be some trial and error… as with most things with parenting. Can I just say that there is milk and soy in almost EVERY YUMMY FOOD. My god, it is so annoying. Ohhh the things we do for our babies 🙂
