I know I’m a beauty blogger and suddenly stopped but that wasn’t by my own accord you see I have a 19 month old who currently suffers with allergies and we’ve hit a brick wall
I’ll start from the beginning when Dory turned 7 months 5 months corrected we was given the say so to start weaning. We started on the simple foods home made purées, toast, porridge and the occasional cheese dunker.
The first few weeks were fine but then I noticed a change in his bowl movement instead of “korma” coloured mush we had “explosions” now by explosions I mean it would seep out of any hole it could to the point I would be washing his hair 4/5times a day we went to the doctors and got diagnosed with cows milk protein intolerance which meant we could not longer have a dairy filled diet.
We stayed dairy free for the next 6 months and the nappies marginally got better although now they were spinach coloured and could clear a room but as we hit his 1st birthday we faced the dreaded milk ladder which we failed after only a quarter of a malted milk. We also found out at this time we had a questioned soya allergy as we tried soya milk and within 20 minutes we had an explosion!
Another 6 months had passed and we received no communication from the dietician or paediatrician and his allergies was getting worse we could be sat playing and all of a sudden he would be covered in hives and have blisters that was puss filled and bleeding on his bum and this was every week!
This carried on until a few weeks ago when we finally was given the news we could be referred to an allergy specialist after numerous phone calls, a&e visits and doctor apppointments. We are still getting the hives and the blisters and we are STILL taking formula at 19 months because we are allergic to any other alternative milk. The list we can’t have or have a question mark next to is endless and it gets to the point of me not being able to work from fear of my son having an anaphylactic shock and ending up in a&e.
I will start my blog again and I’m even starting to create my own vegan/allergy inspired recipes to share they will all be up in the near future.
I’m now off to change a blistered crimson bum whilst bribing him with peppa pig
