I've been off top 8 plus corn for two months (well, about 6 weeks of no fish) and am not sure what to do next.  DD2 is 9 months and reacted to dairy early on so I cut it out.  At first that seemed to do it but eventually she was having green, mucusy stools all the time and mild eczema on her face.  A few weeks ago her stools were too the point that they were more solid so I tried a little butter (DD1 always tolerated butter) and things got very loose and mucusy again.  It's been 2 weeks and they are not mucus anymore but still greenish and very loose-they just absorb into the diaper.  The eczema on her face is better, cleared near her eyes but still leathery on her cheeks.  She is also on Kirkman Labs pro-Bio gold, a full capsule each day.  She has had banana, apple, green bean, avocado, carrot and cucumber as far as solids go.  I am not sure how taking her off solids would go...she know what things she can have and screams at us as soon as she sees them.

Should I wait a few more weeks to see if things improve again?  Remove something else next?  I'm not sure where to go from here.

DS had green stools from foremilk / hindmilk imbalance which was remedied by block feeding. Not sure but I think food allergies and gut imbalance could also lead to green stools. DS had extreme eczema while I was gluten, dairy, egg, soy, corn, citrus free - when I went off tomato (and to a lesser extent the rest of the nightshades) his exzema and itching cleared up within the week. Maybe try removing 1 food and see if it helps.

banghead.gif  Duh!  I think I figured it out.  I will have to wait a bit to be sure.  I went in for acupuncture a couple weeks ago and was detoxing!  I was having headaches for a week and half afterward and just felt like garbage.  I went in again yesterday morning and she did a gentler balancing treatment on me.  Already DDs bowel movements seem to be improving.  I am pretty sure I was spilling toxins like crazy.  Poor kid.  I feel like a moron that it took me so much to figure it out.  Oh well, it's done.  Can't go back, only forward.
