We Have a New Baby
But then earlier last week I had an idea.
I wonder if Peter could be allergic to milk?
None of my other children have had any kind of allergies. I have no experience with allergies. Surely, he couldn't have a milk allergy. Could he? It was worth a little experiment to find out.
I asked Abe to bring home some almond milk and soy milk. Last Wednesday afternoon was the last of the dairy milk for Peter. And consequently, it was the last of the throwing up and the shortened naps and the screaming. He is a whole new baby. Happy, relaxed, and playful.
I'm partly pleased with myself for figuring out why he was suffering. But I'm more horrified that I didn't figure it out sooner. I feel very sad that he has been so uncomfortable for so many months. I am so grateful he is feeling better and that we are all able to enjoy him more now.
