Did You Know?
The body’s immune system reacts differently to some foods. Common food protein allergies include:
- Cow’s milk
- Tree nuts
Lily’s first moments of life were amazing... and terrifying. Soon after she was born, Lily was placed in the Neonatal Intensive-Care Unit (NICU). During her week-long stay, we noticed she had been spitting up. However, our concerns were overshadowed by the excitement of bringing her home. I couldn’t wait to feed Lily — it’s that bonding time every mother lives for. But each feeding, breast or bottle, would leave her in extreme pain. It was heartbreaking to watch our little girl bring her knees to her chest, arch her back, and cry.
More Issues, More Guesses
By the time Lily was 1-1/2 months old, her food allergies were causing her to experience projectile vomiting. It was awful. Our pediatrician recommended trying new formulas and medications. Nothing helped. Not even soy formulas, which caused severe constipation.
Our quest for answers led us to a pediatric gastroenterologist. After much research, our doctors advised us to try EleCare®. Lily took to it immediately. Our "miracle" formula has helped stop her projectile vomiting and allows her to eat without severe pain. Lily enjoys the taste of EleCare, and the product is wonderful for her highly sensitive digestive system.
