We've had two full days now of nothing in Kara's diet but Neocate Jr. and Kix as a snack for her to munch on while we are eating. We've also had two full days of "normal diapers" and no tummy aches. Amazing. The barley was hurting her more than anything with the soy in it.
I'm not real sure what our next step is going to be. I feel like I'm depriving her (mostly because of constant comments of "That's ALL she can have???") but she seems to be doing pretty good. I know we should continue this for a good week, right, fellow FPIES Mommies? I need the reassurance that what I'm doing is right because it feels so wrong to not be feeding her like we were but she feels pretty darn good.
What's a good recommendation for a 2nd food to try? I'm not sure the carrots and apples were fails now, with the amount of barley she was consuming at that time that had the hidden soy in it. I'm going to say soy is definitely a fail now though, instead of just a possible! Should I go with a fruit, vegetable, should I trial wheat? I'm looking for something with the most possibilities for meals and also with some filler in it. I feel like we are back to a newborn again because on the formula, she is constantly hungry!
