I'll try to be brief.
Here is the issue. DD nurses every 1-2 hours round the clock. She is significantly slowed down from when she was a baby. She is very dependant on the nursing and I suspect it is because she doesn't feel right. She eats nearly every food we put in front of her. She is very intellegent and articulate. She also takes at least 2 hours to get to sleep every night from the begining of her bedtime routine. Skip the routine and watch out!
I have struggled w/yeast for years and never really won.
When dd was born she was on IV abx "just in case" because of meconium (don't get me started there). I was also on abx because I was positive for group B strep.
We never got thrush, at least not badly. But all her diaper rashes are yeast. She has had one almost non stop for the past year. She has been on homeopathics for yeast for several months per our chiro's suggestion. (he did the muscle testing to see which ones) She takes a ton of acidopholis. She bathes each night w/ vinegar in the bath.
I am allergic to dairy and also can't tollerate beef or pork. I recently gave up gluten for me and dd and we both reacted (congestion, flu like symptoms) when we got some by mistake so we're off gluten. It has been almost 3 weeks so far.
I think there is more to it than that though but I don't know what to do next. I eliminated dried fruit, fermented foods, juices, sugars and am trying to restrict refined grains and fruit as much as possible. I'm working harder at getting acidopholis into both of us. Nothing seems to have made any difference in her behavior.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Am I missing something major? What am I not considering? My dr and naturopath say to just give it time. I want sleep in longer than 1-2 hour chunks. That got old a long time ago.
