Our youngest son, also known as B was overall a healthy baby. However he has taught us a lot in three and a half years namely about patience. Shortly after he turned two, we started noticing some stomach issues. After six months of elimination diets, blood tests and other test he came up with a diagnoses of fructose malabsorption.
This opened up a whole new world of nutrition and meal planning. I spent over a year researching low fodmap diets, gluten free diets and learning as much as I could in the kitchen to help feed him “normal toddler food.”
If it wasn’t for the pediatric nutritionist we were referred to, I would’ve been completely lost. She helped guide us down a path of normalcy. While his diet is manageable and mostly under control, it’s opened our eyes to evaluating what the rest of the family eats.
