I think my 13 month old dd might be sensitive to eggs. I've tried to do an elimination diet twice and her poop is pretty much all over the place as far as consistency, color and smell (although no red, black or white so I'm not super alarmed) and I've just been really confused. I had been keeping eggs out of her diet when she had a huge poop (massive, the right color, undigested blueberries, very unformed and all in her folds from front to waaaaay back) from some blueberry muffins I made her with coconut flour and chia seeds as an egg substitute. But it didn't result in a rash. But I thought, oh no! Did those muffins have some offending food in them?! More confused. It just must have really cleaned her out maybe. I was so frustrated this morning and just felt like I couldn't figure out how to make her poops better so I just kind of threw in the towel and gave her a carrot/apple muffin that was made with eggs and whole wheat flour. 7 hours later she had a putrid smelling poop that was light in color and seemed kind of mucousy. So I am back to thinking she might have trouble with eggs - though I am sort of in denial. Is this a reaction that would have you guessing eggs? I've never dealt with a food sensitivity. Also her little anus was red (which makes me think it's food and not diaper related) and barely, barely red where the poop was touching her skin. She was sitting in this diaper for maaaaybe 5 minutes before being changed.
So if it IS a sensitivity to eggs...*sigh* I guess I wasted a lot of time making and freezing loads of baked goods with vegetables (veggie pancakes, carrot muffins, etc) for quick and easy breakfasts. But also, now what? Should I get a test to confirm it (cause really I'm still a little unsure and wondering if she's sensitive to other things, too and maybe a test would shed some light? Is it likely she'll outgrow this? I feel so overwhelmed trying to come up with healthy options for the family and to think I'd have to get rid of eggs and/or cook separate batches of things is daunting to this already exhausted and stressed out mom. Any advice, guidance or food ideas?
