Unfortunately Sam won't be screaming for ice cream on his first birthday....we've eliminated dairy from his diet since Monday, and we already have two nights in a row of 7 hours of sleep! That hasn't happened for SIX months! His rash is also clearing up nicely. And he's so happy, well he was happy before, but now even happier.
I'm going to wait until his rash is completely gone and then try the soy milk one more time. If that doesn't work, I'll have to figure out what his milk alternative is going to be. Most kids that can't handle cow or soy milk can handle goat's milk, but I don't know where to find it around here! Annie - my cousin's wife who is a GI nurse, thinks he will outgrow it and recommended giving him til he is a year old adjusted (March 15) and then trying the dairy out again.
I guess we will cross that bridge when we come to it, for now I will just enjoy my happy sleeping baby!
