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?

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..

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
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).
