CC is turning one in a week and my milk supply is diminishing hence weaning from my pump and supplement cow’s whole milk for my milk shortage is my goal at the moment. I tried the cold turkey approach over the weekend but she rejected it so I started to mix just an oz or so with her regular milk and she took it (a total of 5 oz) yesterday.
Her eyes were red and swollen when I picked her up from the sitter last night. She looked tired and wasn’t excited to see me as usual. She just didn’t look as well as normal. Tears almost came out of my eyes when i saw that. The sitter told me she also had three bowel movements and the stool was unusal (green and had a very strong odor). I was a bit upset because she didn’t call me to let me know about it until the end of the day. She said CC finished all milk and food, played well and slept well, didn’t have a fever therefore she didn’t call me. I told her to call me immediately next time something like this happens again although I won’t be able to do anything but at least I could call the doctor and bring her to the ER or doctor’s office for a check up. We thought it might be due to cow’s milk allergy because it was the first time CC was like that.
I called her doctor while driving home. Doctor didn’t think it was milk’s allergy. He suggested I give her bendryl to relief the itchiness but I didn’t give it to her though. I gave her dinner as usual but she threw up everything shortly after that. I was really worried but she seemed fine afterwards. Her eyes also went back to normal later in the night.
I give her some more cow milk today to see if it happens again, if her eyes get swollen again or swollen elesewhere that means she probably has milk allergy. She really scared me last night. I freaked out and worried like hell.
