My son Tobey has multiple food allergies and today we celebrate his first birthday. This is a huge milestone for us and we look forward to lots of other firsts.
I was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis at the age of 3 and was removed from all foods at the age of 4.
My daughter is Kennedy and she is 20 months old. She started off completely healthy, but by the time she was two weeks old, we noticed blood in her stool.
In March of this year we at Nutricia had the great privilege to meet with three wonderful families that are using various Neocate products to manage their cow milk and multiple food allergies.
When my oldest was born, we embarked on the journey of breastfeeding. She took to it naturally. At about six weeks of age my daughter began crying a lot. She was fussy, gassy, and unhappy. In one weeks time she had lost ounces of weight and lay lifeless.
My first and only child, Teddy, turns 7 next week, and two months after that we mark his 7 year “tubieversary.” He was born full term but aspirated meconium during delivery and was in the NICU for two months for respiratory distress and failure to thrive.
