Or should I say, SOY MILK?
Friday night we had a little scare with little Brody when he started throwing up blood. Since it was in the middle of the night, I called the on call Dr.on call and they suggested I bring Brody in to the ER!! I hate Emergency Room's with a passion. Since my Dr.'s office opened at 9am on Saturday I decided to wait and bring him in then. Even though he was throwing up blood, he wasn't screaming so I didn't have an extremly paniced feeling.
When I brought him in to the Dr., and after discussing everything that Brody has been going through, my Dr. thinks that Brody has an extreme case of acid reflex due to a possible Milk allergy.
As my mom can testify, milk has always been a problem for our family. Whether it just caused collic or an allergy. After two weeks, Brody started displaying collic like feelings, so I cut milk and cheese out of my diet. Not completly , but quite a bit. I noticed a little difference but not 100%. Friday Eric made me a soft Taco and forgot and put cheese in it. I didn't notice until I was practically done. My Dr. finds it very interesting that this is the same night Brody started throwing up Blood. That is common in a milk allergy.
Soo... for me to continue to nurse If we find out for sure it is a milk allergy I will have to cut milk and anything with milk in it out of my diet. I guess that is one way to loose the baby chub from my pregnancy. I really hope it is not a milk allergy, not for me, but for Brody, it is really hard as I have experienced with Blake. But I guess in the grand scheme of things, it could be worse!!
