At least that’s what the nurse said to Pip – that he was the cutest patient ever. And I’d have to agree with her!
We had an appointment with dermatology today and I think it went well. Unfortunately we don’t have any more answers but we did get a different skin care regime to follow. We’re also going to not introduce any more new foods for 30 days and see how the flare ups are. So Caleb will have the joy of eating carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, bananas and rice for the next month. That’s all he’ll eat anyway so it’s not too big of deal – I just feel bad he won’t get more variety. I had a nice talk with a friend the other day and she encouraged me not to stress out about it. Caleb obviously isn’t starving and he’ll be just fine even though he’s not interested in eating alot of baby/people food. He’s eating 5-7 bottles a day so he’s definitely getting plenty.
His skin does seem to be better lately. We switched back to regular Soy formula about two weeks ago and so far it hasn’t made it worse. I’m praying the rice doesn’t make it worse and it’s just normal eczema and not an allergy we’re dealing with. And until we know for sure he’ll just have to keep being the cutest patient ever!
