Re : Encephalocoel...

Re : need advice!

<t>I hope Luke is doing better. I am assuming that you have tried modifying your diet - exclude dairy. To see if it is indeed a milk problem. I have had very similar problems with Drew. Turns out he can't handle dairy or soy. Also remember that the alimentum is higher in calories and is broken down ...

Re : Vision/Eyes Problem?

<t>Hi Are! I haven't been on the forum in weeks, so I am not familiar with your situation (how old your baby is and how early), but your topic interested me. Ian was ventilated for 5 weeks and ended up having laser surgery on both eyes at 10 weeks for ROP. We were told a very grim prognosis, but tur...

Re : How is Everyone

<t>Hi All! This is the first time I have visited the forum in weeks - sorry! Drew had his (late) 15 month checkup last week. He is a whopping 20 lbs! We have been struggling with tummy troubles with him and have tried several elimination diets. Come to find out it may be the salmonella that he had t...

Re : Anybody else have kids with allergies?

<t>If you are still looking for websites, let me know. My niece has celiac disease and dairy problems, so my sister knows all the good recipes!! My boys are mostly off dairy also. Totally off topic, but I noticed your affinity for cloth diapers - I have a bunch to get rid of...do you know any takers...

Re : Preemies Health Care Costs

That does seem very low. We always joked that Ian was our million dollar baby - well, maybe Blue Cross' million $ boy!!

Re : Here we go again....

<t>Hey gals! All safe here - finally got power this afternoon. Just some trees down. We found THE hurricane shelter and actually got to stand outside and watch it all happen!! Our friend has a store - cinder block strip mall, one story! The covered walkway in front was totally sheltered by the other...

Re : Frustrated

<t>My second pregnancy started the same way. By 11 weeks I was on methyldopa 500mg 3 x per day and procardia 90 mg once a day. I was taken out of work and had my activities restricted. I felt just like you do. It seemed so unlikely that I would make it much farther. The good news is I made it to alm...

Re : Weaning and Sleeping

<t>I weaned Ian at 16 months (12.5 adjusted). He was already sleeping through the night. I weaned him of the night time nursing by moving him to the floor in our room instead of our bed. I could just pat him back to sleep when he started to stir. Then I just dropped to once in the AM and once at nig...
