I don't know what I would eat if I followed that list. I breastfeed and have already had to eliminate dairy (Liliana has a dairy allergy) plus I am a vegetarian. What does that leave? :confused:

I'm not a vegetarian, but I can definitely relate. Connor was BF until he was 6 months old and I was dairy-free for half that time due to his milk protein intolerance. For the last 6 weeks or so I was on the elimination diet (recommended by Dr Sears). There were only like 5 things that I could eat - all day every day. I never did figure out what he couldn't tolerate.

Now that he's on solids, I know there are quite a few things on the list that he can eat with no problems. He does fine with broccoli, corn, apple, banana... just to name a few. Every baby is different. The best way to find out what your baby can tolerate would be eliminating the things on the list for a week or two, then slowly reintroduce them into your diet (one at a time). Or, if you typically eat a LOT of any one thing on the list, maybe try just eliminating that for two weeks and see if things get better.

I just wanted to say I know how hard it is. It sounds like you're doing a great job so far!

I'm a breastfeeding mom too but found that there can be a mix up in figuring out reflex to oversupply..

Quote:

Babies that are breast fed can sometimes show symptoms of reflux, but not actually have it, oversupply can cause very similar symptoms

Symptoms of oversupply can include:
fussing at breast
bobbing off and on
arching back
increased spit-up
reluctance to feed
hiccuping
increased gas
green and watery poos

And if oversupply is the problem it can be a lot easier to fix than reflux

if you suspect oversupply may be the problem, you can get support on the breastfeeding board or by speaking to a trained lactation consultant or breastfeeding counsellor (details on the bf FAQ board).
