Ok- I am looking for some hope about this and I am sure to get soem things I don't want to read but please be honest.
here is my info: rough pg, lots of ms etc, bm mucus started around 6 weeks and growth slowed too. She gained great the first month and then slowed way down. Not to dangerous levels but enough to make me panicky. I cut out all major allergens religiously out of my diet with no result. her stools became normal around 6-7 months but she has continued to have a slight contact diaper rash. At 10 months I developed IC Interstitial Cystitis. Horrible chronic illness. I am going to an amazing Chinese Med doc who believes it is an illness beginning with damaged gut (Pill, Abx etc) Anyway I now believe there is some connection between my health and the baby.
Anyway- I am beyond overwhelmed with my dietary restrictions right now. basically a yeast diet with a million other things because of my bladder pain. dd's dr (A Homeopath and MD) gave her a constitutional remedy and a probiotic and advise me to do an elim diet with her. I just can't right now..... I am so overwhelmed with pain, fear and my own restrictions which wouldn't always correspond with hers.
She is still low low on growth charts. About 18 lbs at 18 mos. Her height is better. She has steadily gained but just not alot. her only other issue is the diaper rash which I am assuming is yeast.
Anyway- this is probably so unclear but I guess what i wish is that I could just feed the baby. My family eats a very above average healthy diet and very low sugar. I have been restricting my diet for a year and a half almost it is so hard. I don't give the baby dairy or a lot of gluten but I wish I could just stop worrying.
sorry so jumbled. any advice?
