|I love reading!|
We thought Ethan had his first food allergy to green beans over this past weekend. I introduced them on Friday and by that night his face was all red and it wouldn't stop itching and rubbing his face. We thought it was just the eczema so we fed him green beans again Saturday and he had the same reaction. We called our doctor's office and the nurse on-call said it was okay to give him Benadryl. Our doctor said yesterday it could've been the green beans, but she thinks it was more just his overall irritation of being itchy...and the winter cold isn't helping! Like I mentioned, she gave us two different medication cremes to try so hopefully this will help calm him and he will stop clawing his little eyes out!
We had a weight check yesterday and Ethan now weighs 12 lbs. 15 oz - so up another pound from the last appointment! We introduced squash today and he seems to enjoy just as much as sweet potatoes. Next up, fruit purees!
Eric got Ethan to laugh for the first time on Saturday! We've been waiting and waiting for his little giggle to come out and it was the sweetest thing. We've only heard it one other time since, but I know he'll start hamming it up in no time!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
