My DD is eight months and 24 lbs. I love my ring sling for quick trips into the post office, etc. I use my Kozy (mei tai) for longer trips to the grocery store (front carry) and for hiking (back carry).
Hate my ergo
I made the choice at around age 12 to skip all "required" visitations with my mom. Not because I was being manipulated but because I truly did not want to go.
How far apart do you live? Can your hubby take her out for an evening for dinner or a walk where he can talk to her and discuss how she feels?
Twelve can be a difficult age and if she has four younger sibs to deal with when she comes to visit she may not have the opportunity to express her feelings...

I would pull back on solids and keep a food diary of what you are eating (if breastfeeding). If you continue with solids keep track of what your baby is eating too. See if you can find a pattern.
I would also suggest a visit to an allergist although testing at this age can be difficult and results are not as accurate.

Don't ever pay for shipping on cloth...
I recently healed a cut (due to biting!) by only pumping that side. I pumped while nursing on the other so I kept the same schedule and did not mess with my supply.
I hope it heals quickly! I hear you on the pain
I would suggest you pop over to http://allergy.hyperboards.com and read the "Schools and Food Allergies" section. Lots of great resources and BTDT advice.
I would have a 504 in place for my PA LO if we were to choose public school (we home educate).
Prefolds are super easy!
As others have said, don't get sucked into paying $30 a diaper (unless you've got that kind of money to spend).
We use pockets at night and prefolds & covers during the day. I spent less than $100 to get started and with two in cloth now I bet I've spent less than $300. A huge savings over sposies, less trash, and I feel better using cloth on those tiny bums
