I've been taking him to a NAET practitioner, which is an allergy elimination therapy. I call him our witch doctor. He uses muscle testing and energy work to clear allergies and I'm hopeful that it will make a difference.

In fact, the baby was having the peanut reaction the other day when we went in, and after doing his voo-doo magic, the red swelling was gone in 2 minutes. And we cleared eggs so I've given the baby a bite of egg, and he was clear! Just having eggs on the safe list would be huge right now.

Thankfully Teddy is fat and happy and sunshiney and doesn't really know what he's missing out n yet.

I highly suggest looking into the GAPS diet.  There is a baby version and there is very good success with healing allergies forever.  Something is going wrong in his body and you can likely take care of it quickly at this age.  Mostly at his age he should be having bone broth and probiotics until his gut lining heals and re-populates with good bacteria.  There absolutely nothing harmful about the diet and it's only going to help his immune system.  It will probably help everyone else in the family too.  ;)  My husband has been doing the diet for 2 weeks now and his IBS is totally under control for the first time in his whole life!  While we all still have healing to do, it's pretty amazing that it's working for us that quickly.

I don't know why I didn't think of the GAPS diet. Fabulous idea--thanks Abra.

Hmm, they both worked for me.  Where did they take you?  It's the Gut and Psychology Syndrome..  Well, if they don't work, do a Google search for GAPS diet and it will come up.

I did a google search. One took me to the gap (clothes) and the other to some weird survey thing.

Can a baby eat too many peanut butter sandwiches and bananas?  Because if they can...

 

Any sneaky veggie/fruit ideas for picky babies?

Pumpkin pie? Shay's been devouring him some pie. It's not hard to make and I've been making it with whatever winter squash I have on hand. I don't even make a crust, just pour it into a pan and let it set before cutting.

Fritters and dip!  Cornmeal based, quinoa-based, potato or sweet potato-based. Add an egg, bread crumbs, some smushed veggies, spices and even dried fruit and nuts, and fry in coconut oil. I make a yogurt-herb dip. Easy to modify for any kind of diet.

Eli is on a pea streak :)  he loves his peas ... funny child.  I hated peas and only recently started liking them :)  Eli does love eating everything you give him and I am so thankful that he isn't picky!

This is actually a GREAT idea!  Thanks!

 

I know this is terrible, but B ate a whole piece of take out pizza last night bigeyes.gif  All the other kids were having pizza Friday, and she was super jealous so I gave her a piece thinking she would gnaw on the crust...and she devoured it.  Im thinking I should start trying veggie pizza for her-  veggies in the dough AND as toppings.

LOL, I won't judge you.  Shay would eat 2 pieces if he wasn't allergic to milk.

We make pita pizzas here! Just get a pita flatbread round, top it with toppings, and throw in the oven at 400F for 8-10 mins. They're great personal pizza size and easy to chew for babies with few teeth. I can't try one myself due to allergies, but DH says they're awesome! Super fun for getting kids involved in dinner prep too.

I made pumpkin bread yesterday and Jack is loving it.
