been on 100% formula for a week now (I had to stop breastfeeding b/c
my RA flared and I'm back on the meds!) and I noticed that there was
something a little off the past few days... Our normally happy baby
was a smudge fussy, she started throwing up formula, and her dirty
diapers were not looking right (just wait until you have kids... I
never thought I'd be so aware of bowel movements!)!
We hauled into the pediatrician's office this afternoon for a little
checkup and were surprised by two things- one good and one so-so...
The good: Dagger's is officially 7 lbs!
The so-so: She's allergic to milk!
Apparently this is common in babies and she'll probably be cool with
cow juice in a year, but for now it means that we need to feed her
dairy-free formula (Similac Alimentium). It's just a little smellier,
but costs twice as much! she has expensive taste already! ;)
