    Question RQOTD - Thursday

    Do you have any allergies? What are you allergic to? So far do any of your LO('s) have any allergies?

    I only have seasonal allergies and Vicodin makes my body itch like crazy. Jordan is really sensitive to mosquito bites. She was bit on her face over two weeks ago and the spots are still healing up. Nora *may* be sensitive to dairy. However, I cut it out of my diet and she is still getting congested at night and spits up like crazy. I'm not sure if I need to eliminate soy again or something else. It's such a guessing game.

    Cantelope. I have to carry an epi pen because of it. I went to a restaurant once and they cut biscuits on the same cutting board as the melon. Their cross contamination caused me an ER visit. So now I just carry an epi pen.

    I am allergic to penicillin and all related drugs as well as mosquitos and deer flies. DJ is allergic to watermelon, cantaloupe and musk melons. So far, Alicia is not allergic to anything.

    Kayla- Andrew's G.I. Doctor said soy is a bigger trigger than dairy for most babies. I would try to cut that out as well.

    Ava has no known allergies. Andrew is allergic to pain. Any time he bumps or scratches himself he breaks out into big welts. It's weird. I need to bring it up to his Ped and see what that's actually about.

    I have enviormental allergies to who knows what. I keep myself well drugged, or I'm a complete mess.

    I'm allergic to most things outside. My biggest struggle is being allergic to almost all types of grass.

    I'm also allergic to animals....dogs/ cats and other environmental allergens.

    My boys do not have any known allergies; however, I'm pretty convinced that T is sensitive to the same allergens as me.

    I have no allergies of any kind. So far DS is showing no signs of allergies. DH just has sinus issues from allergies but has never been tested for us to figure out what exactly does it to him - he had zero issues in Vegas so it's something nature-ish.

    Kayla I'd immediately cut out soy. ((hugs)) My BFF had to do that. She also ended up having to cut out gluten, but on the bright side at 7 months small amounts of gluten aren't bothering her baby though any time she tries diary or soy they have issues again. Spitting up and crying were their signs of something was up. Ped kept saying silent reflux, but yet it went away with a soy, diary, and gluten free diet.

    That's strange because I read the opposite, which is why I put soy back in first. It's so hard to find reliable info!

    Nora probably has some reflux going on but she is still a pretty happy baby overall. Especially compared to how Jordan was as a baby. Jordan was inconsolable so much of the time while Nora may be fussy but is very easily consoled. Nora is also sleeping better now than Jordan did most of her first year! Jordan's GI doc actually told me not to torture myself and put those foods back in my diet. (That was when Jordan was around 6 or 7 months.) Then, yesterday, the nurse practitioner told me to try dairy and see if Nora seemed to notice. It's so hard to know what to do since so far, I haven't seen any obvious reactions to my diet. I'll be honest, I don't know if I could handle a dairy free, soy free and gluten free diet. However, I absolutely so not want to give up breastfeeding... so maybe I could.
