Heat cna exacerbate eczema, so if DD has any at all and gets hot, it gets worse. As for cheating, I'm completely off my diet at the moment. Bad momma! I'm trialing a new elemental formula and trying to find a good turkey source - but I'm more procrastinating about it. I just hate the darned diet..I admit it. If she completely tolerates the elemental, I'll be considering weaning....Probably won't but it'll be tempting. If not, I have that extra push to force the diet (I'm always bad when sick and I've got a nasty cold ATM) HOwever, once I go back on, I don't cheat. It kills me, but I don't.
