thanks luvs   :)

good news, Ds2 poos have been back to normal for at least 2 days now. My memory won't go any further back  ::)

So tonight I decided to try onion.  I'm just too eager to expand my diet and my sanity is seriously getting tested right now!

I cooked spag bol for the boys and was soooo tempted to eat some, and I just had a spoonful. I thought too silly, if he reacts I won't know if it's the tomato, onion or garlic.   So having boring Quinoa with cooked onion and roasted mild spices and pistachios.

hrk

More hugs, hun.  It sounds like torture making yummy foods that you cannot eat.  :-(  I am so hoping you are able to expand your diet.  Everything crossed that last night's food was fine.

YAY!!  Great news for normal poos!   ;D

The good news is if there is no reaction in the next few days tomatoes are probably ok too.

And I know what you mean about making things you can't eat - it's so hard.  I remember having to make several gorgeous cakes from scratch for various events and not being able to have one teeny lick!  Upside was that my thighs thanked me.   ;)

Hoping things continue to look up!

How is this going, Eloise? Have you been able to add back more stuff?

I think I will try further restrictions after the weekend. Not sure whether to try your list or Vicku's  (http://babywhispererforums.com/index.php?topic=165526.new#new) even though I don't have access to acupuncture.

DS2 is much better in terms of screaming and sleep (although naps are still very sketchy) and poos have been yellower but mucousy is coming and going in varying amounts and ecxema on his face persists and has flared a few times (yesterday it was almonds I think).

So far I'm not eating:
   -dairy (perhaps a bit of trace)
   -soy (except lechithin; soy oil is not okay, right??)
   -peanuts
   -beans
   -berries
   -yeast
   -corn (but I cheated on this one last night so we'll see!!)
   -chocolate (dark, DF)
   -shellfish

Hi Shannon,

I accidentally ate gluten last night for dinner and he had a bad night.

We also had a really bad flare up about a week ago, I dn;t know what cuased it.  I think it may have been a build up of salicylates and amines as I have been increasing them in my diet very slowly ove rthe past few weeks.   So now i have pulled right back again.  I am seeing a dietician that specialises in baby and intolerance on friday so will let you know what I find out.  THere is not much I can eat at the moment.  :-[

I would not use Vickus list, as I looked into alot of it and some stuff is based on chinese medicene theory but things are actually ok to eat,   For example brown rice is fine.  If you are looking for foods to exclude I would strongly recomment the RPAH elimination diet, developed in Australia by Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Allergy unit. There is a low and moderate level.  If you follow the low level it will send you mental, but It will allow you to do proper food challenges.  Also the Fed up Food network follows this diet and is comprehnsive about what is good and bad about certain foods, explains about all the food groups, so you will understand for example tha berries are high in salicylates, if they are a problem you will need to watch other high slaicyalte foods like coconut cream/oil, mushrooms etc   I currently am following the low RPAH diet, (last week or so as I just don't want another reaction right now.
