Today is DS's second birthday and we have reached our goal of two years! It was not always smooth sailing, DS had a rough start and spent the first 36 hours of life in the Special Care Nursery, I had to pump because I couldn't hold him to feed him. At 2 months DS was diagnosed with MSPI, so we went dairy/soy free until 10 months when that cleared. At 11 months I started to have symptoms of thrush and battled that for months until we realized it couldn't possibly be thrush since it wasn't really improving at all. After a milk culture supported that my symptoms did not seem to be caused by bacteria or yeast, the doctor recommended a full elimination diet. I chose to do a partial and eliminated eggs, milk and peanuts. After doing that the problems I experienced cleared and it became evident I had an intolerance to dairy. But, we made it! Thank you to this board for all of your support, particularly when DS had MSPI, I think I would have starved to death had the sweet, supportive girls on here not been so helpful in directing me to the resources they had.
