Ds is 9mo, and had 7 teeth by 6mo. The top front ones (all 4, I think) had white spots last month and now they're full blown pits, and they're getting bigger by the day. Needless to say, I'm FREAKING OUT and want it to stop, NOW. He's also biting things more and grinding his teeth lately and I'm putting big money on it being related.
Dd had cavities early too, at 12mo, I've researched all the healing stuff, clearly something's not working, though. Hers have mostly slowed down, but are looking worse lately as well. She's 4, and still nursing.
What's in the house:
Xylitol tooth gel
kid and adult toothpaste with fluoride
clay, including the 'tooth powder' or whatever samples that they mailed with my order
cell salts (I have him on 1 each of calc fluor and calc phos, 3x/day, per PB)
bones to make broth
beef shanks (with lots of marrow) cooking for dinner, I already gave him some marrow bites
frozen lamb liver
10lbs grassfed butter
a tiny bit of HVBO
frozen salmon roe
5000IU vit D supp
ds eats any and everything we offer, in quantity (his choice), so getting stuff into him will not be an issue. (is that a clue as to why his teeth are falling apart? bad absorption?) He also insists on eating anything that we are, and dd has a thing for carbs so he gets a fair bit of stuff like raw apple, banana, etc, he started stealing rice (cooked in bone broth) too. In the last couple days, he's been craving butter, just straight, and I've been giving it to him.
I'm off of gluten, dairy other than butter, and a bazillion other things, cause of my own sensitivities. I vaguely suspect he might be sensitive to coconut or eggs, eaten directly, but he's eating them now without clear symptoms and cutting them out would be a big stressful deal at this point. I was low on vit A while pg with him, and just improved my own vit A status with fish oil supps in the same timeframe that his teeth started to get bad (not sure which happened first, the vit A or the spots). I'm off of A for a few weeks now, and have requested labs to get my D checked. It was 60 right after he was born.
To top it all off, I'm still just barely surviving day-to-day, and barely have a minute to sit down and think. What I need most here is a plan. Help me out? What's the plan?
Already working on:
xylitol gel, 4x/day
vit D (gave him 5000iu yesterday, will repeat sunday/monday, probably)
