Little C is doing so much better!!! Once we changed his diet he started improving right away. The fever still had us a bit thrown but it was finally gone for good by Sunday. Although there are huge improvements he is left very tired and not quite 100% yet, but it isn't too far off. Phew!!
The diaper rash is almost gone and his BM's are down to roughly 4 per day which is a HUGE improvement from the 10+ per day we were experiencing when this was at its worst. He still hasn't slept straight through the night for some time but I think that will get back on track this week.
He was well enough to go to daycare this morning but it was clear getting back to the grind may take a day or two for the little man. He cried pretty hard when I dropped him off and he kept asking for his paci. That darn paci. It brought so much comfort and worked its paci magic when he was sick and screaming during diaper changes but now... it has. to. go. He literally cannot go more than 15 minutes without it. We try distracting him and it works for a bit but as soon as he realizes what we are up to he starts right in with, "paci? paci? pleeeze? paci?" Then the crying starts and then the tantrum starts. Since he is still not 100% we have been pretty flexible about good 'ole paci but soon, things will change.
We have an appointment with a Pediatric GI specialist on Wednesday just to make extra sure that the diagnosis is correct and to address our concerns with his frequent bouts of sickness. I'm hoping to get some more answers but mostly hoping Little C is just fine.
I hope all of you had a great weekend and your week is off to a good start!
