I summed up the entire problem in the subject heading LOL.<br><br>
My 6.5 month old Dd is exclusively breastfed and has had a runny nose since birth. My own nose has always stuffy most of the year from allergies. Her mucous is yellow which usually means a cold. I don't know if she has a cold because she acts like she feels fine. She's happy and playful. I do want her to stop having a runny nose, though. What should I do to improve my diet, or what supplements should I add that would help? Any advice is appreciated. Assume I know nothing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>

I was advised to add that she's not vaxed and I eat a lot of dairy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

it could be an allergy<br><br>
My exclusivly BF son suddenly was congested and had an ear infection from the moment we moved to Washington.....6 months total!<br><br>
We moved away from Washington and his symptoms magically disappeared!<br><br>
Do you have allergies?<br>
Also it could be due to all the lactose in your system. I know I am very suseptable to lactose and my symptoms are runny nose!

I do have allergies, stuffy nose that itches like nothing you can imagine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> and dry, burning eyes. Also I sneeze a lot. I've always blamed it on typical seasona allergies but I've never been tested. I used to drink a gallon of milk every 1-2 days up until recently. I still eat a lot of dairy, overall.<br><br>
I keep telling Dh we need to go see a nutritionist to find out how we can improve our diets. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thanks!<br>

I would elliminate some of the raw dairy from your diet. Like MIlk, but keep the cheeses and yogurts......processed stuff. Try that for a few weeks and see how you feel.<br><br>
It might also help your baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><br>
You dont need the dairy for your milk production.

I bet you could learn more off these boards than a nutritionist. JMO.<br><br>
Look into the food board and recipes and the raw foods board. There are some very smart moms on these boards. They can answer just about everything you want to know.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Should I definitely eat raw cheese? Are there health benefits? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
thanks!
