My first born daughter, Daisy, was born in March 2016. The first few days of her life were amazing, with her being a great sleeper and feeding really well. After that, on April Fool’s Day, Daisy surprised us with her first bout of projectile vomit. Since then Daisy has been diagnosed with FPIES.
FPIES is an allergy syndrome that causes Daisy to have projectile vomiting episodes when she is having a reaction to a food she is allergic to. Today I want to share a slightly light-hearted look at what it is like dealing with a poorly child – by talking about 5 places my child has vomited.
Some of this post was written several years ago, before we found out that her sleeps after reactions were actually a sign of a potentially dangerous health issue, so please take it with the light hearted pinch of salt that it was intended if you’re an FPIES parent, or sufferer, yourself!View Post
