As you can clearly see in this picture Mr. Oliver is having an awful eczema outbreak. The poor baby had it so bad that it turned into a secondary infection on his face! I am 100% sure that his problem is dairy proteins so I am continuing my no-dairy diet. It's really rough! Unfortunately all of the amazing frozen stash I have is dairy-laden so I will have to either start making my own goat's milk formula or start buying some to use when I am at work. I cried for quite some time today about it. I keep beating myself up over it but I think I finally realize that there was nothing that I could have prevented. I won't compare Oliver to Dexter here but I will say that my BFing story and Dexter's babyhood were picture perfect and a dream. Good thing he came first or I am pretty sure I wouldn't have wanted a second baby.
With a little antibiotic ointment and a whole lot of patience, Oliver is looking like new! Thanks for following my journey. I would love to hear about your experiences with goat's milk and supplementing formula or dietary problems. Its nice to know that I am not alone!
**Thank you Fibers.com for sending me these onesies, I love them! I designed them myself and I chose all of the colors/fonts. Fibers.com makes it easy to create your own t-shirts and onesies. They even have big brother t-shirts for Dexter!
