The in-laws came by for a visit this past Monday. It had been way too long since they came over for a visit, even though they live just an hour and a half from us (don’t get me started!).
Match and his dad both had birthdays this month so they exchanged gifts. Piglet once again had a blast helping daddy open his presents. The MIL brought a couple books for Piglet too, which he loved.
Match went to work and the in-laws stuck around to take Piglet to the park. It was the first time they’d played with him at our neighborhood park, and they had a lot of fun with him. I just wish they would take more time out of their schedules to have these days with Piglet. He’s growing up so fast, and I’m afraid they’re missing it. Match and I both wish they were more involved grandparents, and it makes our hearts sad that we have to practically beg them to come visit.
After they left, Piglet was acting really strange. He seemed tired, even though he’d had two naps, and I chalked it up to over stimulation or a growth spurt. I had just finished nursing him, and was going to lay him down in his crib when he threw up all over himself, his crib, and his Blue bird. It was awful! I was so worried about him. He threw up a couple more times, in between nursing sessions and sips of pedialyte. He didn’t have a fever, and he seemed happy, just a little lethargic and of course the vomiting. I had just introduced tofu into his diet, and I thought maybe he had an allergy, even though for the past few days he didn’t show any signs of a reaction.
Thankfully he stopped vomiting after just a little while, and kept down some applesauce, oatmeal, and breast milk. The next day he woke up happy, but then at lunch, I tried giving him just plain mango, and he immediately threw it up. So I think he may actually be allergic to the mango, not the tofu. I will avoid both for now, just to be on the safe side, until I talk to his dr at his next checkup later this week.
To all my mama friends out there, have your babies ever had this kind of reaction to food? Did they ever outgrow the allergy?
