We trialed pears the last few days after much consideration over what our next food was going to be. I decided on pears because it is one of the few foods that most FPIES kids can actually have.
We started pears last Wednesday around suppertime. I gave her a sippy cup of about 1/4 pear juice, 3/4 water. That night she was up a good part of the night really fussy, just laying on us, obviously uncomfortable. On Thursday she had a total of 5 bad diapers. Hello, diaper rash, it's been a whole two days. I can't say we've missed you!
I did some researching of this and thought maybe it was because of the juice, maybe it was the syrup in the pears. I had some fresh pears but when we finally went to trial pear, they weren't so fresh so I settled on what I had. It was on Friday that I steamed some up. This breaks down the proteins a little more so hopefully lessening the chances of her reacting.
It was evident by Saturday morning that we were failing so I called it quits. I'm bummed about this and not sure what to trial next. I really thought this was going to be a pass food but it certainly explains a lot of past behavior and symptoms in Kara before we started the elimination diet and food challenges!
