Izzy had another appointment with the GI doctor this week. It appears that my little guy's digestive tract is finally maturing. His stool sample was perfect. I feel so relieved knowing that his little tummy feels better.
The bad part is that we have achieved this amazing feat by eliminating dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, and citrus fruits from my diet. According to the doctor, most babies outgrow food sensitives by 9 months of age. Now that Izzy is 8 months old, the doctor would like for me to start adding these foods back to my diet. I am following the doctor's orders and adding citrus fruits back to my diet first. I plan on buying some limeade this weekend. Mmmm...limeade.If all goes well, I will add nuts in two weeks, soy in four weeks, eggs in six weeks, and dairy in eight weeks. In two short months, I could possibly be eating like a normal person again. This is great, except for the fact that I am probably going to gain 20 pounds in the process. Do you know how bad I want ice cream? And cheese? I would give my left eye for a calzone and a bowl of Chunky Monkey.
