Stopping Banana

The soya trial doesn’t seem to be getting very far as once again other things are delaying us.

Some weeks back we were having a rough time with Tim again and the only thing that was different was we had found  a recipe for banana pancakes

and as the boys liked them (and I had bananas that needed using) we had them a few days in a row, normally we don’t eat that many bananas here, so we wondered whether they were having any affect on him.

So we decided to cut them out of his diet for a while with the intention of trying them again in a few weeks, then we had an incident with Sammy sharing chocolate with Tim one morning,  as expected as few days later he was unwell, then we ended up at the doctor just to get a cough checked.

The doctor said he had a chest infection and gave him banana flavoured amoxycillin antibiotics.

We don’t know whether it was the the antibiotics or the flavouring that was causing the trouble,

but dose one – no problem,  dose 2 crying and inconsolable within 10minutes, this continued for around 2hours when he then fell asleep, slept for a couple of hours, woke up, played happily had 3rd dose and was back to crying within 10minutes, so we stopped them

After another couple of weeks I decided to retry banana last Friday

bananaFriday wasn’t too bad, but Saturday night wasn’t the best, by Sunday something was definitely causing trouble as he woke by 10.30 and was up until 3am, this was after paracetamol and then some time later piriton, the eczema on the backs of his legs got worse as well.

So it looks like we are off banana for a while. Hopefully nothing else is going to materialise soon.
