Scary stuff

This morning we had our first "oh shit" moment with Kendall. Not to say we haven't had a few freak outs (what new parents haven't) but this was by far the scariest.
This morning we have her yogurt for the first time. I was a bit hesitant at first, considering yogurt is dairy, but after doing some research and talking to a few friends, it sounded as though dairy in yogurt was fine, because of the live cultures, etc in yogurt. Well, to make a long story short, Kendall ate all the yogurt like a champ. She looked like a little bird taking it all in. About 20 minutes after finishing it, she started coughing and making this weird coughing/choking noise, like she couldn't clear her throat. I gave her a little water, and then all of a sudden, we had projectile puking everywhere. We got her all changed, and she settled down for her nap and about half way through her morning nap, she was super fussy, so I took her out to settle her back down. Then came round two of the throwing up. Poor baby had it all over her face, in her eye lashes, etc. we got her in the bath, and after her bath, noticed she had a rash all over. So off to urgent care we went. She ended up being just fine, but the doctor told us no dairy till age 1. It's a little frustrating! The doctor tells you one thing, baby food packaging says another- how do you know what to do other than follow your gut instinct?! Needless to say, we won't be trying yogurt again till at least 1 year. Today will be lots of snuggles and kisses to keep baby girl happy. XO!

  1. Oh no! How scary for you mama!! I have been there. It sounds like she has a dairy allergy. I let both girls have yogurt before 1 (they loved that baby yogurt at the grocery store in the refrigerated section) and they ate it like a champ too! That definitely sounds like an allergic reaction to it.

    Hope she is feeling better!!!
