Parenting Adventures: The Specialists #FPIES #FoodAllergies #MomLife

*This series focuses on our adventures in parenting and all the ups and downs along the way*
Welcome back to another "Parenting Adventures" post, here on Savy Mommy Moments.  As you may recall, our last post talked about our sweet baby girl, Savy Baby, and the struggles we encountered when introducing her to solid foods.  This post will be focusing on the next steps for determining the cause of her food and growth issues.  This step includes several specialists, a pediatric GI, a nutritionist and a pediatric allergist. 
First stop, was the Pediatric Gastroenterologist (GI).  At this appointment, they took all her vitals, height and weight and talked about her issues with food and lack of growth. She agreed it sounded like a case of FPIES, but also agreed with our pediatrician that there could be an underlying issue affecting her growth.  So, she ordered a full blood panel looking for anything abnormal with her liver, kidneys, thyroid, heart, vitamin/iron levels and much more.
We immediately left the GI's office and got her blood drawn (not my favorite part).  She was an absolute champ and only cried for a second when the needle went in and then just watched them draw the blood. What an amazing little girl (and daddy for holding her). I stood in the corner stifling my cries.

Kid' Sleep Moon Sleep Trainer - Day 6: 2014 Holiday Gift Guide! #ClaessensKids #HolidayGiftGuide

When your child is a baby, all you want is for them to sleep! And then when they finally start sleeping through the night, they get too big for their crib and it's time for a big kid bed.  You know, the one they can get in and out of on their own, which is fantastic when they need to go to the bathroom or you don't have the energy to lift them into the bed, but not so when all you want is for them to STAY IN BED!

Looking for a fun unique gift for that person on your list that seems to have everything?  Check out Fluffy Friends Chomping Plush Toys! These toys caught my eye at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair and I just had to learn more about them.  They are a cross between cute and fluffy and mean and ferocious.  They have a fun chomping action that is controlled by your index finger and thumb on the back of the Fluffy Friend.  They just love to chomp on anything durable like shoes, pencils, and even your fingers (not recommended). Perfect for the coworker you actually like or your significant other who loves unique gifts. It would even be fun to “chomp” a giftcard into one’s mouth and give both as a gift to someone!
