    Erin, we still don't know all of his allergies or more accurately we don't know what all he reacts to. As far as foods go he has tested positive to dairy, eggs, peanuts, some tree nuts, garlic, chicken, pork, some legumes (so we avoid almost all including soy), and wheat (he's also tested negative so we've trialed it twice but are still avoiding). We also avoid all the more common allergens like fish and shellfish, strawberries, peas and some random things like peaches and cherries because they are closely related to almonds, which he's tested highly positive for. Basically we have to go really slowly with trialing foods and we can't always tell whether he's reacted or not because his skin is almost always broken out so unless there is a super big reaction we can't be totally sure. So he's still on a pretty limited diet and still gets the majority of his nutrition from elemental formula.

    I do think he is outgrowing some of his reactivity, whether that means he's outgrowing some allergies or whether his body is just able to deal with things better now I'm not sure, but the end result is that he is feeling better so that's a positive. He's also gaining weight really well and catching back up with his growth curve. He was up to 10%ile at his last visit, which was a pretty huge deal for us. He's been on a zinc supplement for several months and that has made a really big difference in his growth and the condition of his skin.
    Gosh, I can't even imagine.... You are such a good mama!
