It was day 2 in the hospital rt after Lil p’s birth.. When Lil P was born she was 36 weeks and 3 days old.. weighing a mere 2.8Kgs.. We were struggling with the BF, both of us frustrated with our attempts. By second day I was exhausted.. n so was she.. that’s when the nurse suggested that we try lactogen.. A new bottle was bought, lactogen mixed and administered.. and that was when we realized that Lil P had lactogen intolerance.. and a severe reflux to go with it. She vomited the whole formula.. and they had to pump out any remaining traces to stop her from vomiting further.. I had no option but to give BF my best shot.. Thankfully, I was able to express and then feed her using a tiny spoon. Day 2 she had developed jaundice and her weight dropped to 2.5 kgs which is not uncommon in kids who are underweight.. She was kept in a photo therapy machine for three days… the tiny body with her eyes taped.. in that machine.. It was heartbreaking.. I can’t imagine what moms of premature babies go through. Even as a 4 day old she struggled to remove the gauge tape covering her eyes.. ok I digress..
I still find it difficult to talk about it.. Lets speed it up a little.. In short, Lil P never had formula milk and thankfully never needed to either.Funnily enough, B Milk was never a problem.. Cerelac without milk was ok.. once we started Rice and boiled veggies we never really missed Milk .. Even to this day, Lil p has a vomiting reflux if she smells milk, sees it or sees anything that looks like milk.. She will Vomit. When she was about 6 months old we tried curd and there was no looking back.. It was like curd and Lil P were made for each other..she loved to eat it on her own.. Leaving you all with a fav pic of mine – Lil P eating Curd..
Does your child have any food allergies? How did / do you deal with it?
Since its customary to share a recipe for Yum-Tum Wednesdays– Here it goes..
PS: Its got nothing to do with Curd..
Do you remember this trip? We were lucky to have a family who looked after our every needs.. The food was customized.. the flavors amazing. I have never felt so pampered and indulged in my life. One of the highlights of the trip was a bread crumb pudding that was served to us.. Me n my sis loved it a lot.. the rich creamy feel of the dessert that was a cross between a shahi tukda and a frozen pudding. .. Once we were back, I researched the net to get the exact recipe and found something that came really close. Do follow the link to check out the super easy recipe.
