Milk Trial Update

It seems that H has outgrown her allergy to milk just as predicted by both the pediatrician and the allergist. We started out by giving her small amounts of bread that had milk baked into it. Gradually she got more and more until she was eating whole slices of bread with no problems. This week we introduced small amounts of pudding, yogurt, and cheese. Each were bites off of daddy's plate. This morning she had a small drink of cow's milk.

The plan now is to let her continue drinking soy milk because that is what she is used to and what she likes. However, we will start giving larger quantities of milk products and see how things go.

I would love for her to outgrow at least one of her allergies. This gives me hope that baby E will do the same.
