tummy bug?
emi has been refluxing a little more this past week. her CSID flared a bit this week and last b/c i haven't been able to police her foods as well. I have had a careful watch on her diet since wedensday and it has gotten better.

never has she gotten mucus while reacting to sugar(CSID), and last night and this afternoon she had large amounts of mucus in her stools. Not to be gross but it was literally gobs to where there was no mistake of what it was. (when she had mucus reacting to milk it was strings or little bits)

She has not eaten anything different or new since wedensday. Is there any sort of stomach bug or virus that would cause this?

Cooper had this big time before I did the elimination diet. It was so bad. The pedi would always say, maybe he has a virus, when I would tell him about it. So I would think that might be it. Maybe she just got a hold of something she shouldn't of. The new baby is precious btw. I love the name Audrey, that would have been Cooper's name had he been a she;)

I am not sure either but I think it is possible it is a bug.

FYI, Melina was going to be Audrey Elizabeth but our last name didn't go as well with a "y" sounding name. LOL. I LOVE the name Audrey though. I think it's pretty funny we were all thinking the same thing. LOL.
