Elli's face before. (This picture doesn't quite do it justice. The rash was much worse in person.)
And after using the soy formula for just 36 hours. What an improvement.
So, I'm not sure what to make of it. I tried nursing her yesterday and it was a disaster. Her rash didn't return full scale, but she was back to being a fussy, unhappy baby. I can only deduce that my breastmilk, for whatever reason, bothers her. Could it be a milk allergy? Who knows. Now I have a freezer full of breastmilk and am not sure if I should donate it, or save it for a rainy day...just in case she grows out of this stage. Do I quit pumping and let my milk supply stop? Oh, the questions.
For now, I'm just happy to have my sweet, contented baby back. Thanks for your prayers!
