It looks like baby William (premmie born 26th May) has my intolerances to gluten, dairy and soy (IBS) and Daddy's family's excema!
We had to take him to the doctor in November for a once over of his excema (moderate to severe), a family history etc. So the doc started him on a special formula available on prescription (pepti-junior gold) that is dairy, soy and gluten free and we changed what we were washing his clothes in too. Ran out of prescritpion and couldnt get in to see the doc until Chirstmas Eve so couldnt order this stuff until then.... so over Christmas poor baby teethed and scratched himself raw!
Got my new order of the formula in on Tuesday and within 36 hours we were just back to teething again.... Happy little baby chatting away in the corner now! Still has the reflux though - threw up all over grandma at the local shopping center (mall???) yesterday. So that is the next thing to get checked out. I have bad reflux and have been on tablets for it since I was 19.... was sooo hoping that it wouldnt be genetic!
Anyone else having similar dramas?
