1 - replenishing your body's vitamin and mineral supply, before having another child, sounds very beneficial for all. besides starting on a prenatal vitamin before pregnancy, does anyone know of a good list compiled somewhere that would be good to get a lot of these vitamins from? i'm not even sure what type of keyword would be a good way to search for a list like this would be.


2 - @changingseasons - do you know where i could see this article? perhaps it would have suggestions on foods to eat too!


3 - if anyone else has any suggestions that you're finding now that your children are older. for how to help a 2nd child avoid or lessen their allergies to milk, soy and eggs. i would love to hear them. we haven't started trying for a 2nd child yet, but anything i could do now, to help, would be great!

I'm not sure if this is the one I was talking about, but here's one about vitamin D:

This is old, but I just wanted to come back and update. This turned out NOT to be true for us, thank goodness!  Baby number four does have a milk allergy, but it seems to be no worse than kid #3. I think kid #2 was the worst out of all four.

Thanks for the update.  Glad you were able to prove the doctor wrong-- that pretty scary!


Just to add-- my first daughter has severe milk and wheat allergies (and a host of minor ones), and my second daughter seems to have no food allergies whatsoever.
