I must admit I went back to my old habits of rocking M to sleep. Whatever I was doing last week was a complete fail. SO we went to the bookstore the other day and picked up some reading for me. The Sleep Lady's Good Night, Sleep Tight book. I am too much of a wimp and a softie for Dr. Ferber. I started reading the book the day after I bought it, so far it seems really good. Going to have J read it as well and then we'll start our sleep coaching.

We saw a new allergist for M yesterday. I am happy to say that the appointment went very well. Dr. M was a bit dry but we had expected that...our pediatrician warned us. :) BUT he was warm and welcoming. He spent about an hour talking with part was that he gave us  hope that M might outgrow some of his allergies! yahoo!! We are going to try re-introducing some of the foods he tested positive for...if his eczema worsens during that time, we stop. Eggs and wheat are off the table until he is 2 years old. He gave us handouts on how to help the eczema and how to control the dog dander. Really glad he did not try to convince us to get rid of the dogs. We explained that the dogs were with us during our road to M and that we did not want to get rid of them unless it was absolutely necessary.

Trying brown rice pasta. Skin is looking good. :)
A bad skin day in Belize...who knew bananas could cause such a reaction??


  1. Glad you like the new allergist! May it just be a matter of time and slowly reintroducing.

    Hang in there with sleep. There's really no one right answer as long as you find something that works.

  2. Poor little guy! I'm glad the new doc seems good and hopefully you're on the right track!
