So I am begrudgingly looking in to an elimination diet. I don't have to like it, but I will learn more about it. A brief scan of the information on askdrsears.com says that several of some of the things going on with Eloise could be related to food allergies. I thought it was just the rash, but apparently the hives, the rough skin on her face, and now introducing . . . green poo! All signs of a potential allergy. Like you all didn't know that. I needed to figure it out for myself, you see.
I don't want to attempt something like this all willy-nilly, so I'm going to look in to it more and figure out how to do this realistically. So far I've sort of given up my vitamin C supplements (have you heard about the sharp increase in norovirus in the Puget Sound region? Yikers! Hand me the vitamin C!) but beyond that, I'm not doing anything.
So all of you mamas who are smart about this kind of stuff, can you send me links as to what I can do to start an elimination diet? I'm lazy, you see. And severely sleep deprived. And very, very fragile.
