Accidental milk swig

On Thursday morning a friend of mine and her little boy came over. Her son was drinking a tippy cup of milk and I didn’t notice it until it was in my son’s hands and he’d already taken a swig. It is times like this that I thank God my son is not anaphylactic. Little Z didn’t seem all that bothered at that moment, but within an hour or two he started having diarrhea, his stomach became distended, and he wouldn’t eat lunch. Two days later, his belly is still distended, he has several funky smelling, food-filled #twos (around 4-5 each day), and has a bright red diaper rash. Poor little guy cries at every diaper change!

Before and After Eating an Offending Food

These were taken on Father’s Day Morning (hence the cute Onesy I made). Just a few short hours later (after lunch) my son’s stomach was distended and he had his customary sulfur-tuna smelling diarrhea full of undigested food. He also developed the usual red, shiny, pimply diaper rash. I still can’t figure out what bothered him that day.
