Btdt, got the t-shirt too.
Please consider adding some (grass-fed) beef bone broth, chicken broth to your diet. It will provide significant nutrient and micro-nutrient replacement. http://www.westonaprice.org/foodfeatures/broth.html
Guaranteed to help what ails you. Seriously.
Continue the Epsom salt baths, that will help detox the yeast die-off and add magnesium for neuro and hormonal health and development. (As an aside, our son's constitutional homeopathic remedy is Mercurius also.)
Rotate your probiotics every 4-7 days. Apparently, the gut develops "probiotic resistance" when the same specific probiotics are used over a longer term. That is why the kefir is so much more beneficial. It has a balance of probiotics and (kefir) yeasts to repopulate the gut.http://www.kefir.net/https://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=203282
We used "Flander's Butt Cream". It is made from balsam wood. It soothed the irritated skin. It STAINS everything it touches, however. http://www.drugsupplystore.com/servl...intment/Detail
Consider Silver gel for topical use. It has resolved some amazing wounds in our family. It can be ingested even. http://www.colloidalsilvergel.com/
Soak your grains to make them more bioavailable and more easily digested. Your digestive reactions chemically are transfered to baby through milk. Read at the "Healing the Gut" thread/tribe about how healing the mama's gut, was essential to the babies' digestive recovery. https://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=434071
I soak organic steel cut oats, whole grain barley and whole grain brown rice overnight to make wheat-free pancakes. They are indistinguishable from "normal" pancakes. Dh and ds love them. Sue Gregg has many recipes about soaking grains for nutritional health. It is so simple. Here is the link about it. But, seriously, this is much more nutrient dense. http://www.suegregg.com/recipes/brea...erwafflesA.htm
Increase your fats. Both you and baby can eat coconut oil directly. Add fats to the broth. Drink 2-4 cups per day.
I totally agree with your CSS theory and observations.
