Has anyone done the TED and had luck with it? If so, what did you start off with in your diet? My DD has MSPI but is still reacting to something with blood and mucus in her stool so I have started the TED but I'm not sure what all to eat. I know they recommend a few things to start with but I am afraid of making it worse. So any suggestions?

This looks the most promising to me. I would stick with turkey as the meat but it gets you all groups and will allow you to keep your milk production up for your LO as well...a common concern with ED while nursing. I hope you can figure out what is causing her issues. Have you cut out all common ones? Some of the most likely suspects are cow's milk products, soy, wheat, corn, eggs, and peanuts. Maybe try this for a week (if your baby is not too sick already for you to feel okay waiting that long. If your baby is doing any better within 3 days than I would wait out the week and then 2 weeks. If she isn't better at all by day 3 than I would definitely try the TED... I also think this will be helpful if you do the TED as it is geared toward early childhood and nursing.

Elimination Diet | Ask Dr. Sears

•Eat only range-fed turkey and lamb, baked or boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes (with salt and pepper only), rice and millet as your only grain, cooked green and yellow squash for your vegetable, and for fruit, pears and diluted pear juice. Drink a rice-based beverage drink in place of milk on cereal or in cooking. Do not yet use soy beverage. Take a calcium supplement. (Rice products, such as rice beverage, rice-based frozen dessert, rice pasta, rice flour, and millet are available in nutrition stores.)

Please keep us updated on how your LO is doing. I hope she starts feeling a LOT better soon!!!

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

I did not do well on a TED. I lost too much weight and lost my milk. But I also found out later on that my son was allergic to potato which is a large part of the TED diet. All you can do is try.

We had great success on neocate, but it was a rough transition. And breastmilk is definitely best as long as you and baby are both healthy.
