I began a TED 7 days ago to try and clear YDS of stomach discomfort and mucous poops. Prior to the TED I had cut out top 8 plus corn and chocolate.
My original TED consisted of white potatoes, olive oil, pears, brown sugar, canola oil and chicken. By day 4 and 5 LO’s poops were worse, he was obviously experiencing stomach cramps, and he was spitting up a ton! So I decided to replace chicken with lamb.
If poops aren’t showing signs of clearing in 4 more days what would you recommend cutting next? I didn’t include rice in my TED because I’m suspicious that he is sensitive to rice.
I’m getting so discouraged and am so sick of potatoes already!May 23, 2011 at 8:31 pm #68423hellbenntKeymaster
the TED takes two weeks and then you start adding foods in to see what you CAN eat.
Research all you can! You are your baby’s best advocate!
Look for all posts by Erinntx! (be SURE to read her ‘sticky’ – the link is below)
here’s some more light reading for you :

I agree that you should give it time, your LO needs some time to heal his insides. I honestly don’t know what else to tell you to eliminate. When I did TED I was able to eat turkey, rice, potatoes (white and sweet), olive oil, apples, bananas. I then was able to add wheat. As a side note, I don’t eat pears myself because I don’t like them, so he was never exposed, but when we started solid foods I gave him pears becuase they are supposed to be low on the allergy scale, he reacted to them big time with TERRIBLE diapers right away.May 24, 2011 at 10:57 am #68427AnonymousInactive
I know it can take two weeks (or longer) to get to baseline, but it’s my understanding that he shouldn’t be getting worse once starting the TED. And he was definitely getting worse.
I’ll stick this out for another two weeks and see if we get anywhere! If not I’m considering subbing avacado for either potatoes or pears. Where does avacado rank on the allergy scale?
Thanks for the suggestions and all the links. I’d stumbled upon some of them through my research already but a lot of it was new and useful info for me.May 25, 2011 at 7:58 pm #68430
