I’m on my third baby with MFPI. I started the TED on week 2 with this one. He’s now 3 months old. His stool still has not cleared of mucus, although the diarrhea did stop for a short period of time. So the diarrhea and excessive vomiting has picked back up now along with lack of sleep and extreme fussiness. No new foods. I already discovered potatoes and turkey are a no-go for him (discovery week 4). So I’m eating pears, rice, lamb, and zucchini. Only OO and sea salt. I can’t even use brown rice syrup.
Any chances the rice is a problem? I obviously use it with everything as my starch source. If I were to leave that out, what could I find as a safe substitute?
I was making cookies with brown rice flour, mashed pears, salt, and extra light olive oil. He would always have a reaction after I ate those. Any ideas why those would cause a problem? The different olive oil? Or brown rice as opposed to white rice? Thanks ahead of time for your wisdom!August 22, 2012 at 8:41 pm #70844AnonymousInactive
I honestly don’t know much about the TED. I tried when my boys were babies to avoid dairy. I failed and went to formula. I had never heard of MFPI or the TED diet until in the last 6 months.
I believe that my children had MFPI.
I hope that you will take the time to read my blog. (see signature). I am sure it will be of interest to you. My first 2 children suffered badly from reflux and food intolerances but finally after several years I found the root cause of their problems and were able to treat them. Today they sleep all night pain free and eat whatever foods they want. I also have a 10 month baby that is reflux/food intolerance free and sleeps all night long, sometimes up to 12-15 hours without waking up.
I wish you the best in finding answers for your little one!! Happy Mom2012-08-22 20:41:52August 23, 2012 at 11:30 am #70849AnonymousInactive
Thank you, Martha! I found great information on your blog and enjoyed reading your story. I had never heard of alkaline water. It definitely makes sense, but I’m afraid there’s no way we could afford that for now.
We just received our probiotics in the mail yesterday, and our enzymes are on the way. Hopefully that will help!
I tried going without rice yesterday, and he didn’t spit up at all! I’m afraid I was so weak at the end of the day, though. Only eating three foods. Perhaps the probiotics and enzymes will help enough that I won’t have to give up rice.
Still wondering if I should try millet or quinoa though.August 23, 2012 at 4:15 pm #70852hellbenntKeymaster
I would give up the rice for 4 or 5 days, see how it goes, and then try millet. give that a good 4 or 5 days. if it’s good, stick w/ it…then try adding in avocado for some good fat…
