A further update on the elimination diet

So, I got rid of it.
Effectively, there was a while there where Margaret was loosing weight, which kind of defeated the purpose of said diet. After all, we were looking for reasons for why she wasn't gaining appropriate weight. (At some point, I'm going to get a copy of her growth chart, and scan it in, and post it on here)
I have the doctors and paediatricians okay on this one, so it means full diet is back.
So, daily food intake is 25omL bottles (four of), 1 to 2 weet bix each breakfast, morning tea is either avocado or yoghurt, lunch is left overs from last night (today, it was ham steaks, peas, and potatoes. Peas are a favourite, for some reason), afternoon tea is either avo or yoghurt (which ever she didn't have for MT), and dinner is what we have (tonight, its grilled chicken breast, with colcannon and peas).
Back to weekly weigh ins, too.

Katharine's 6th birthday party, and gift cake

Well, it was a huge success, even if it wasn't at a park, as originally intended.
The kids loved it, I heard a rumour of a sleep over between Katharine and Akasha, and the cake was everyone's new favourite design.
See pics for more details :)

Update on the elimination diet...

We've almost finished week 3.
Margaret has finally started liking rice, potatoes, and pears.
Next week, we introduce sweet potato, and go back to the dietitian.
Here's the problem, though.
She's now losing weight. 40g in a week, to be precise.
I think I need to push the paeditrician to sort something out. More tests or something.
Oh. And vomiting weekly, and fevers with it.
I'll try and touch base again on Friday.
