Wyatt is having them hard core. I assumed it was dairy like ds1 and got that out of my diet in a couple of days, (but obviously sticks in the system for awhile), but anyways, he's only getting worse. WHich means there are more. So I'm starting a complete elimination diet today Hopefully we will figure it out soon cuz baby is in bad shape. Lots of pain. I hate it for him, makes me and him feel terrible.
I'm wondering about tomatoes too. I ate a bunch od tomato sauce the other day and his skin broke out really bad and he farted all night long...
I too have also stopped eating anything w/ tomatoes.
Good luck mama!

What are you doing for a complete elimination diet? I mean, what are you eating, if you eliminate everything?
I do notice DS tooting more when I eat beans, but it doesn't seem to bother him at all. Just a lot of painless toots. Which is good, because I need to eat beans.
I'm interested to hear the tomato thing, I'll have to pay attention after I eat red sauce and see if it seems to affect him.
Am I the only person eating peanut butter? I can't figure out if I'm doing a bad thing or not.
my third was my only allergy baby, and her's was to soy. she is 2.5 now and STILL has bowel issues with soy anything.
My dh and I are the allergy king and queen, so I am keeping a close eye on this little guy.

As far as peanut butter, I'm eating it. We don't have any family history though. For those don't do peanuts, Almond butter and Sunflower Seed butter are both very good.

I guess we're joining the club! We're cutting out dairy to see if there is any change. E had/has really bad baby acne, a fussy time (but it's the hour before bed usually - no matter if its the same as last night), and for the past 2 days he had green poop!
Oh well...guess I can lose that 30 pounds now that I can't eat my sweets!
Does baby acne always mean a sensitivity? All my kids have had acne and a fussy hour. My dairy allergic baby had a super bad case of acne and was fussy round the clock. I thought some baby acne is normal. Does anyone's baby not ever get acne? I am having a really bad day and second guessing everything right now.
I'm : too.
I have read where people think the acne does get better after cutting out dairy. Also E has it all over his head and down his to his shoulders. (FWIW...Both of my older boys had it pretty bad too from what I remember and no allergy there.)
The fussy part I thought was "colic" (whatever that means!) not allergy related since he doesn't do it round the clock.
The green poop thing just started too. Only happened a couple of times...
I can tell my body is detoxing from all the stuff I'm not eating and then sure enough I read last night that gluten has an affect on the brain and you can have "withdrawal" symptoms from it. Feels to me somewhat like a caffiene or sugar withdrawal. Maybe after a couple of weeks i'll feel really good from not having any of this stuff in my system. It will be interesting to see.
After cutting out the dairy, the acne now just looks like normal baby acne. Some days it's almost completely gone. And the nighttime screaming is GONE. Sometimes a bit of over-tired fussing, but feeding and walking make him get right over that. But no in-pain screaming. It's incredible!
And it is definitely the dairy. Why? Two nights ago, I ate some frozen red beans and rice, which had been cooked in a fair amount of butter. Last night, almost exactly 24 hours later, the man was in serious gut pain. The screaming was back. We hadn't heard it in weeks! It was so sad - I did this to him!
He has green poops every now and then, and we initially thought it was because of the dairy. But ours are caused by the foremilk-hindmilk problem. If he only does a five-minute nibble, two hours later he will have a bright green poop. But if he eats for 10-15 minutes, we get the regular yellow-seed poops back.
