One Sad Mama.

I may be overreacting. Maybe. One can never tell when they're in the midst of a stressful situation and particularly when it involves their baby. That being said, I may not, and I'd prefer to err on the side of caution when it comes to the health of my child. So here goes.

I *think* - think being the hopeful word here - that she may be reactive to eggs. While it's clearly nothing she's reacted to in my milk before, though I eat eggs somewhat infrequently, I gave her scrambled eggs for the first time yesterday and she had FOUR blowouts. Same exact reaction she has to dairy. I'm thankful of course that the reactions aren't anaphylactic, as a.) this is obvious less severe and b.) she's likely to outgrow them both, but eggs and dairy? SERIOUSLY??!?!?! My poor little munchkin.

Rather than sitting here on the verge of tears feeling sorry for her and myself, I'm making a ton of calls to local allergists, hoping to find a pediatric allergist that accepts our insurance. It's surprisingly tricky. I thought I'd done my due diligence and found one, but turns out he doesn't see children under the age of two. Really? Ugh.

Anyhow, I had better get back to my research and calls! I'll keep y'all updated, and hopefully we'll find one and get seen this week! Cross your fingers!


  1. Mmmm...sending you a hug...I know how tough that is. Sera reacted to several things, including those. Good luck with the's so hard because many of them don't see young ones, and even when they do, they will tell you that the tests aren't very accurate for little ones. So frustrating. Praying for you that you find a great, understanding doc! Hugs!

  2. Poor A!! (And mommy!)Baby Butterbean and I are sending good vibes your way! Hopefully you find a doc soon!

  3. Oh No!!! I'm so sorry for baby and Momma. This might make you feel a little better??? My ped was very strict about not giving Presley any eggs until she was at least 12 months. She said just plain hard boiled egg yolk was okay, but no egg whites. Apparently, lots of young babies have reaction to the egg whites. So maybe this is just an age thing, and when she gets a little older she will grow out of it. Lets us know what happens. ((hugs))

  4. I'm sorry to hear about this !!! I was reading in my little pamphlet from the ped office that you shouldn't give egg whites to baby until after 12 months. Not sure why but maybe this is what it is??? Good luck!!!
