mdixon,
The first thing we noticed with our daughter was her slow growth, but since she is much younger, she has more time to catch up. We had first researced Growth Hormone Deficiency and in doing that I found that it is possible to hold off puberty in order to let the growth catch up before her bones fuse and it is too late. It definately has it's drawbacks (it may be hard on her to see friends develop before her, and I'm sure there are medical considerations) but you may want to discuss it with your doctor and make the best decision for her. If you feel she is lacking so much height that it could affect her throughout life, it may be worth considering. Just a thought!

Hi Mel,

I had heard 6 weeks, and it took Ashlee about that long to get those "regular poopies" so that is what we went with. I also went gradually. I had heard that hard cheese and yogurt are easier to digest, so we started with just a little bit of those and over several weeks worked our way up. When I finally gave her plain milk I olny gave her a couple ounces at a time and only with food. Now she is pretty much back to normal! She doesn't want to live off milk like she did before, but I think she was pretty much doing that because milk was one of the few things in her old diet that didn't have gluten in it! Good luck!

Hey, Ashlee calling out "Regular Poopies" is still music to my ears! She did have some formed, then more diarrhea and back and forth like that. Then I noticed she was having more and more formed stools. I thought it was strange how it changed back and forth like that. Good luck! It is so encouraging to see results!

Mel, I noticed you are giving her Orange juice. I had to cut oranges and orange juice from Ashlee's diet, they seemed to agrevate her stomach. Until the villi were repaired, I figured the acid is probably pretty hard on her little tummy. If she really needs fruit juice, I would try white grape juice or something.

good luck on the trip!

I just remembered, we also upped the pediasure Ashlee was drinking so that we knew she was getting what she needed until the appetite returned. I'm sure it helped her, and it was a big relief to us since she was still not eating much!
