Get off the Fence! Try the TED!
by Becca Anne, Facebook
So you’re on the fence about doing the TED diet.
Whether you’re a “breast is best” advocate or simply can’t afford formula, I say start the TED diet as soon as you’re done reading this. Here were my top three biggest reasons why:
1. Your motivation will wane. Breastfeeding is hard. So go ahead and commit to you and your baby, and give this a 100% fair shot. At least you’ll know you did everything you could.
2. Your baby will change. Sickness happens, so does teething, weird sleeping, etc. just go ahead and eliminate food being an issue.
3. I knew this would help me figure out what I could feed her when she started solid foods. As you’ll see – no rice for us!!
At this point, I assume you understand the basis of the total elimination diet. If not, please read the rest of the infantreflux.org Total Elimination Diet page, and all the links there.
I had loosely been tracking what I ate for two and a half months – but absolutely no dairy, soy, egg, wheat, or corn. Not even bi- products. My daughter still had green mucousy poop, and on and off cheek rashes. Finally I was ready to give it 100% with TED.
