Thank you - I was waiting for someone to point this out!
Just wanted to update you a bit...I officially started my total elimination diet on October 28th and since then my daughter's eczema has cleared up (even her cradle cap is significantly less), her yeast infection/diaper rash is nearly gone and  her spitting up has gone from 2-3 times after a feeding to maybe 2-3 times a day, and much less in the amount of spit up when she does. We just had a doctor's appt yesterday and she gained 6 ounces in 15 days! She also grew 0.5"...
Thank you for your response. I can absolutely appreciate the concerns about the GI specialist.

Around 4 months, she moved lower in %iles for all, and now (at 6 months) she is <1st %ile for weight, 5th %ile for length, and 10th %ile for...
Looking for a new pediatrician in the Duxbury/Kingston/Plymouth area- won't go into details about our current one, but would like the new one to be an open-minded individual who supports the following:   1) Exclusive breast feeding for at least 6 months, as well as extended breast feeding 2) Attachment Parenting 3) Alternate vaccine schedule   Any recommendations?   Thanks!
