Grace's 12 Month Update

It's been quite a while since I updated you on Grace's developments, so what better time than her first birthday than to let you know how she's doing. It's crazy how quickly time flies and I know I've said it before, but honestly an entire year has just gone in a blink of an eye.

Overall, Grace is doing amazingly and I'm so proud of what she's achieved so far in her little life.

Milk allergy

Weaning has been going great ever since she started at 4 1/2 months due to her horrific reflux and CMPA (cows milk protein allergy). Grace is still dairy free completely and once her symptoms are under control, we can begin the milk ladder to see how she gets on. Her skin is still very bad with eczema so we need to find out the root cause of that before we irritate it further unnecessarily.
She is now on Alpro Soya Milk Junior for 1-3 year olds twice a day, which is great for me as I don't need to smell the horrible Neocate LCP anymore!


Reflux

Grace is still on omeprazole, which is a proton pump inhibitor, it's the same medication that her dad is on for life unfortunately, so I'm hoping she doesn't follow the same path! The omeprazole is brilliant for keeping her chronic sickness at bay, but as soon as we stop it, she begins to vomit frequently daily again. We are discharged from the hospital now as they believe it's of no concern... so we're having to manage it (and guess!) ourselves what the next step is.

Milestones


It's been the best year of my life and I can't wait to see how the next year update unfolds!
