Both Carlson's CLO and Nordic Naturals are low in vitamins--just look at the labels. But Carlson's makes an A & D capsule and the vitamins come from fish oil http://www.carlsonlabs.com/product_d...7509962b8cfaed I got my butter oil and CLO here... it tastes like CLO and it is high vitamin. http://www.radiantlifecatalog.com/sec.cfm/ct/1 So, you can keep taking Carlson's CLO or Nordic Naturals to get your fatty acids, take Carlson's A & D capsule to get the vitamins,...

You all are awesome! I'm trying to be sugar free but failing pretty miserably. I am realizing I have to quit cold turkey. One little piece of dark chocolate starts my slide. I'm really worried about the holidays. Already I'm dying to make all my holiday favorites. I love to bake and I need to find some sort of replacement for that activity. Crafts? Knitting? I totally use sweets as an emotional crutch. Anyway, I have candida and my dd has horrible tooth decay...
Make sure your dentist uses all the precautions that must be on the website someone else posted. I had my amalgam fillings replaced about 9 months before I got preg. The dentist took no precautions!!!! I inhaled and swallowed all that mercury that was vaporized. Now I've got terrible candida and my dd has horrible teeth, likely because with the heavy metal poisoning in me her enamel did not develop properly. I fortunately have found a good ND who figured out why I...

I'm quoting myself, because we've decided to do something about dd's teeth. They are just getting too bad. I should have been doing the xylitol and bone broths before her teeth even came in! We took her to 2 dentists. #1 said he'd have to extract 2, if not 4, of the top front...
My 27 mo old dd is going to get her teeth fixed under GA in December-she'll get the front 4 capped (hopefully not extracted) and molars capped, other decay filled, etc etc. I didn't want to do it but after 3 dentists I am thinking it is for the best. I know nursing doesn't "cause" tooth decay, but in our case, because of her poor enamel, it has to be a contributor. I'm getting pressured by dh and dentist to night wean, and I actually do think it might help her...
Our dd is scheduled for GA in December-they say the same thing, no liquids or foods for 6 hrs before the surgery. I think I'm dreading that more than the procedure itself, as I co-sleep with dd and also bf her on long car trips (the dentist is an hour away). My dh is pressuring me to nightwean, and even though I know it is probably for the best, I'm having so many emotions I just can't deal with!
My dd is 27 mo old and is like yours, wants to eat a few bites then nurse at dinner. Sometimes it happens if she is tired-she really just wants to go to sleep (I nurse her to sleep). I also can't get her to eat much for breakfast--she wants to nurse a lot in the morning. SHe eats more food around other children who are eating than at any other time! Despite this she has horrible tooth decay!

Have you tried eliminating other foods like dairy? When my dd had ezcema at age 5 mo, she was exclusively...

I'm wondering if maybe we shouldn't try to find someone who would do this first, at least. The dentist we saw last was going to do the x-rays after dd is under...
