Dealing with kiddo having milk allergy n very fussy nature
Created by Updated on Nov 25, 2015
Hello parents. I need ur help. ma kiddo is 14 months old n having severe cow milk protein allergy requiring hospital admissions along with severe atopic dermatitis. Doc has told to continue breast feed n give him more of solids .. but he s very fussy. I tried soya milk but he doesnt like it. Also Doesn't eat chapati or any vegetable. All he eat is rice n some fruits but in very small amount requiring frequent feedings. N in d nite he wakes up after every hr to demand breastfeed. It's very exhausting for me. i left ma job since he s born. Now i wanna rejoin but can't in dis situation. Also i vl hv to do nite duties once i join but seeing his nite feeding sessions it has become very difficult for me to join. m almost going into depression. Please share ur valuable suggestions. Can't ruin my career also can't let him suffer.

Hi Sukhdeep, Children around 14 months do become fussy about eating. it is a normal cyclical process where the growth of the baby goes down slightly and he doesn't require as much food. Having said that, you can consult a doctor also on this. Also, why don't your express milk. Expressed milk can be stored int he fridge upto 6-8 hours. It can be given to the baby through a spoon and katori or bottle which your husband or someone else at home can help with.
