It was nice to search through, but I wanted to be able to accurately graph stuff, and I was just wondering if more experienced journaling mamas could share. I'm guessing excel would be a step up. Bumping in case anyone can share their method.
Thanks for the bump. DD2 had mucus and tested positive for blood, for probably 7 months or so. It went away when I was free of gluten, dairy, corn, soy, nightshades, onions, nuts (except almonds), coffee, citrus. It was when I took out the corn, nightshades, coffee, and citrus that it went away, that and she started eating some foods. Even though now she's 14 months, she still has been getting the "ring" around her anus occasionally and still having more bad nights than good. When trying to piece things together in from the diary, it's confusing because sometimes something effects her an other times not. It's a delayed reaction so it's difficult to tell.
My husband mentioned using excel, but I'd have to figure out the best way to do that. Still thinking about that one.
