Thanks to Amy, we received a recommendation to a fabulous GI in Tucson, who is a million times more interested in helping Adeline than her GI in El Paso. He spent about 45 minutes with us and wanted to know EVERYTHING about her since birth. He kept stopping me to fill in gaps in the information I was giving him in regards to her health and feeding. He performed an anal exam on her and noted an extensive amount of mucus, but no blood. Addie was NOT happy about that part of the exam. The doctor couldn't get over what a temper she has! He also lightly pressed his finger on her belly and showed me how she turned bright red in those spots immediately, explaining that her skin is highly allergic and that he suspected food allergies. Last time I went on an allergen diet for Addie I took out dairy, soy, nuts, and fish. He said that he wanted me take out dairy, soy, wheat, eggs, and corn this time around. I received five pages of ingredients I cannot eat on this allergen diet--yikes! She was put on a hypoallergenic formula for three days while I took those items out of my diet. On the formula she was 99 percent less gassy ( a gigantic improvement) and I performed the skin test on her and her skin did not react to my touch--a good thing. I started nursing her again yesterday and the same things held true, so I'm thinking this GI was on to something. We report back to him this Thursday. It is certainly a challenge to eat on this diet, but my sweet girl is worth it. I know it's the healthiest option for her to breastfeed so my plan is to stick with it as long as I can. More or less, I can only eat meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, and rice. It's definitely a healthy diet; I just need to worry about keeping weight on since nursing is really taking my calories away. I'm ten pounds down from my pre-pregnancy weight and seem to lose a couple more each week. Seeing a nutritionist may be in my future.
