I was a whole foods gluten free vegan when bubs was born. But 2 days post birth she was already showing allergy symptoms. So at first I cut out all top 8, then things like spices, latex foods etc until at 4 months I did a TED of rice, peas, pears & spinach which lasted 3weeks but she did not improve (only her eczema cleared up). So I went drastic and decided to eat only ONE food at a time. I started with rice & after 3 days she was WORSE. So I switched to sweet potatoes (which I hate) and at day three her symptoms remain except she is sleeping a bit better at night (up to three hour stretches). I'm thinking of trying maybe coconuts (I need some fats and I love them) or dates? I am desperate to reach a baseline not only to help bubs but for my sanity too. Should I keep trying three days of mono foods or do another 4 item list? And which foods should I try? She's also allergic to perfume, nickel & hates every fibre except cotton.
Family history: my dad is anaphylactic to penicillin. I had eczema & asthma as a kid. Allergic to grass. Intolerant to dairy, beans, legumes. Don't digest melons, apples, peppers & quinoa well. Aversion to cooked Orange veg (sweet pots, carrots, pumpkin).
I've booked her in for osteo and kinesiology - allergists have a 6-12month waiting list.
My eldest daughter at the time was diagnosed with severe colic but looking back I realize it was allergies. I went through 3 years of hell with her, her insomnia meant I was lucky to get 3 hours a night - my body can't take another 3 years.
I can live off of 4 foods but I just need to find out what they are!
